Appy Pie Launches Mobile App Promotion Plans for Android Apps – Yahoo Finance

Yesterday it filed a complain with European Union regulators. It claims that Google creates obstacles for users to install third-party app stores, links essential services with Google Play (thus blocking, again, these third-party app stores), and blocks access to Aptoide websites in its Chrome Web browser. Paulo Trezentos, Aptoides co-founder and CEO, says they are struggling to grow, even to survive because he claims Google is systematically creating obstacles for users to install third-party app stores. Get this: Aptoide says it conducted a small focus group of users which found, it took 10 steps to install the Aptoide app store on Android version 2.1 and 80% of the users could do it. Version 2.3 required 13 steps and 45% managed it. Version 4.0 required 14 steps and only 20% completed the installation. So if this is true it looks like Google is intentionally screwing over 3rd party app stores, contrary to its so-called open ecosystem policies. Any new installation requires unknown sources approvals.

Samsung’s Android homescreen app charts new terrain – Yahoo Finance

Terrain is the debutapp out from Samsungs Palo Alto-based Accelerator team. At first look, it seems significantlydifferent from the stock Android launcher, eschewing the traditional grid of icons for a Google Now-inspired card-based interface. However, unlike Google Now, the cards appear to be dumb widgets, lacking the kind of contextual sixth-sense that distinguishes Googles product. There are card-based shortcuts for the phones most used functions, such as weather information, favorite contacts, and social media feeds. Eventually, Terrain will have a web-standard based SDK, so third-party developers can build their own custom cards. Swiping from right to left brings up an alphabetically arranged list of apps, replacing the grid Android uses bydefault.
