How to Build Killer Android Apps for 4G/LTE Networks

App Development Seacliff D

Every once in a while a new technology changes the game. Some benefit from it while others fail to adapt. Long Term Evolution, or LTE for short, is on surface just yet another fast wireless standard bringing us faster mobile networking. But just like the freeway was much more than just a faster road, LTE actually has a chance to change the rules for app developers and create new possibilities. In this talk, you will learn what LTE is. We will explore it from application developer’s point of view, including a live demo of OpenPlug Studio, a cross-platform native Android app development tool. By the end of the talk, you should be able to identify the opportunities for new applications as well as how to take advantage of new capabilities in your existing apps.
