Android 4.4 is designed to run smooth on a variety of devices, at least that’s according to Reto Meier. You can check out a semi-boring video on using Android KitKat that gives you a semi-broad overview of the development protocols.
For a broader view of Android 4.4, check out the Android Developers page.
Here’s a list of some of the new features:
- NFC emulation
- Built-in printing capabilities
- Easily browse to documents, images and other files
- Low power sensor
- Screen recording
- Step detector
- Awesome image viewing functions
- Beefed-up notifications
You’ll actually probably only use a fraction of the features, but they all look sweet.
