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.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
