Here’s what’s happening at Google IO for those who missed it and develop apps,
- App Encryption – paid apps are encrypted with a per-device key to attempt to deter piracy (let’s see how fast this is hacked)
- Smart Updates – rolling on from what Google did with Google Chrome, updates now only feature the changed parts and not the ones which haven’t, reducing download time and size.
- Google c2dm is much better, now called “Cloud Messaging”. Tons of new fancy features such as multicasting messages and payloads. The best bit? Absolutely no limits and it’s freeee!!!! :D
