Google seeks apps demo videos

Developers invited to make submissions of apps they have made based on Google's technology

Google is asking developers to send videos of applications based on the company's technologies, which could be featured on the code.google.com site or Google developer blogs.

The company, said Christine Tsai, product marketing manager for Google Developer Programs, has been posting videos of developers sharing how they built such applications as mobile systems for the Android platform or AJAX front ends with Google Web Toolkit or how they scaled Web applications using the Google App Engine cloud platform.

"We really enjoyed working with these developers to produce these videos. However, we thought it would be great to allow any developer to create their own video talking about their application and help them share their video with other developers on code.google.com," Tsai said in a blog post on Wednesday morning.

Google will consider videos sent via a video submission page. Videos, which can be no longer than five minutes, must adhere to YouTube terms of service. The company is encouraging use of visuals and screen recordings so developers can see an application in action.

Google is showing sample videos, including the Mibbit Web chat application built with JavaScript and Google APIs, and Giftag, an online "wish list" application developed on Google App Engine.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
