Google Sky Experimenting with Dart For Better User Experience
Say goodbye to Java and hello Dart, Google developers are all set to replace the not-so-quick Java-based apps with their in-house programming language ‘Dart’. It is still in the experimental phase and to even try the demo, one needs to have fast connection.
Google Sky’s main aim is to develop Dart ‘experimental, high-performance UI framework for mobile apps’ that allows apps to run at 120 frames per second consistently. Even in today’s world where the technology is touching sky, most of the apps are unable to reach the gold standard i.e. 60fps.
If Google is able to pull off this experimental project, then we are looking at entire frames running at 1.2 milliseconds. This if compared to the general 8 milliseconds criteria required to hit 120 frames per second, is quite fast.
Sky also support air updates, as most of the app codes would already be available on the server so the developers won’t have to go through the pain of updating codes of each device. All the developers would have to do is update the codes on their servers and wall-la!
Another thing that might interest our developers who are curious about Sky is that they won’t just be restricted to publishing their apps on one platform; they would be given options that include not just Android but iOS as well.
