Learning About Fascinating Features of Android L Camera2 APIs

Features of Android L Camera2

In order to understand the amazing functionality offered by Android L Camera2 API, having a basic knowledge about the Kitkat Camera API can prove really helpful. The KiaKat Camera API was essentially designed for straightforward camera apps which resulted in restricted access to streaming image data, limited info about camera status and unavailability of manual capture control. The Android L Camera2 APIs have been deigned to overcome all these limitations besides enabling developers to create some really cool camera apps.

camera 2

The most important aspect about these new APIs is that rather than being designed as a one way, stream they are created in the form of a pipeline. This enables developers to pre-configure output surfaces and attach the same to the camera. Each individual surface can act as the board on which a stream of image buffers can be placed while also enabling users to pass requests through an image capturing session. Each request will produce an individual image and the API’s make it possible to pass multiple requests simultaneously which will be processed asynchronously. The process of sending requests is of course carried out using a program code.

camera

There are also a variety of surface types that can be used as the destination for image buffers. These include Texture View for pre-viewing images, Media Recorder for video recordings and Render Script Allocation for YUV processes. It is also important to consider the size of the surface while creating it and setting the size is again a process which is carried out through appropriate code snippets. Once the surface has been created, it is possible to create a session which again is a programmatic process and is necessary for handling the requests.

camera device

Depending on your specific needs, you can choose to create a request builder in easy manner with the help of any one of the multiple request builder templates available with the API. The API’s also makes it possible to submit requests in two different forms. The first is type is capture which is used for a single image captured with the help of a specific Capture Request. The other type is set Repeating Request, which as the name indicates enables you to capture continuous images by repeatedly using a given request until it is exclusively stopped.

Focus and Exposer

Here it is important to understand that you might need to adjust the camera setting as per your specific needs just before submitting the requests. The API’s allow you to modify nay properties of the builder before building a request, including white balance mode, effects and even the flash settings for the camera.

Getting Familiar with the Functionality of Enhanced Notifications Feature in Android L Developer Preview

Android L Developer Preview

The Android L developer has created quite a buzz with its new features and enhanced functionality. Enhanced notifications are amongst the various features that have received a significant face lift in the L developer module, making it possible to create and display notifications almost anywhere, including on a locked screen in an Android device. In fact the latest modification to the notifications feature will enable developers to provide a wide range of options to use them in a better manner with their device.

Android L Lock Screen Notification

A major change that has been incorporated in L developer is to merge the notifications shades with locked screens. This means that users no longer need to unlock their phones simply to gain access to notifications as they can easily view this information even on their locked screen. Since the functionality is active by default in L developer, programmers generally don’t have to work much in this particular area.

Apart from ensuring ease of access to notifications, the L developer also focuses on diverse security parameters by adding the visibility feature to notifications. The visibility feature comprises of three levels. The first of these levels is private, which is the default setting for all notifications and prevents the contents from being displayed on locked screens. The second level is public in which case the notifications are always displayed irrespective of whether the screen is locked or not. The third level is secret wherein the notifications are not displayed at all when the screen is locked.

L developer

 Another feature that has been added to notifications in L developer is heads-up, which enables the users to remain alert about important information even when they are performing some activity on the device. The feature ensures that important notifications are displayed in the foreground over any app, when the screen is on and unlocked. These might include notifications for incoming calls and other such important information with the only difference being that now they will appear in a small box just near the top of the screen rather than in the usual full screen mode.

One interesting addition that has been made to the notifications is the ability to categorize notifications based on the level of priority. Moreover, users can also choose which notifications are urgent and hence need to be displayed based on whom they are being sent from. This actually helps in cutting down the need to check the phone to see if the notification received is important enough to get disturbed during an important task.

Immersive Mode API – Helping Enhance User Experience with Greater Control over Navigation

Immersive Mode API

One of the major problems faced by mobile users while using apps is the inability to use them in a truly full screen mode. This often takes the fun away from activities such as playing games or watching videos even on a device with a really large screen. To help the users overcome this problem, Android Kitkat 4.4 has been provided with a new feature named Immersive Mode. This feature not only provides the app developers a better control over the visibility of navigation bar but also enhances the user experience by enabling the apps to run in an authentic full screen mode.

A Review of Earlier Versions

Before taking a look at how the Immersive Mode can change revolutionize the app usage experience of Android clients, let us take a look at what the previous versions of full screen API had to offer. Earlier, Android supported two sets of API for full screen namely the windows manager flags and the system UI visibility flags.

The first set essentially enabled users to show or hide the status bar depending on the setting of the flags. These flags were compatible with all versions of Android and maintained the same status even when the users navigated away from the app and later came back to it. The second set of flags was available only from Android version 4.0 onwards. These flags acted almost in a similar manner as the first set except that they were automatically cleared by the system when the users navigated away from an app.

The Immersive Mode

The Immersive Mode essentially consists of two mutually exclusive systems UI visibility flags, referred to as Immersive and Immersive Sticky respectively. The two flags are explained in brief as follows.

The Immersive Mode

Immersive Flags: The immersive flag enables users to enjoy the apps in full screen mode without any interruption in the form of system bars, unless they themselves desire so. The immersive flags present a reminder bubble to the users when they choose to take their apps in the immersive mode for the first time. Although the immersive flags enable the apps to capture all the touch events, the system bars continue to remain hidden even when the users interact in the middle of the screen. In case the users want to get back to the system UI, they simply need to swipe down from the top of the screen. This clears the flags and makes the system bars visible and to hide them again, the flags need to be reset once more.

Immersive Sticky Flags: The immersive sticky flags are almost exactly the same as immersive flags, except the manner in which they display the system bar when the users swipe down from the top of the screen. Firstly the system bars are displayed in a semi-transparent mode and they will also hide automatically in case of user inactivity in that area. Moreover the system does not automatically clear these flags, which means that the state of the system bars does not get reset every time the users swipe down from the top, which is why the flag gets its name of Immersive sticky.
