What's the Big Improvements in Google Translate?

Posted by John Onwuegbu | 11:53 AM |

Now, Android users no longer have to switch between apps to translate text – as everything can be done within any app. Google announced a new feature called “Tap to Translate” which enables a translation to pop up in whichever app you’re using, without the need to switch apps.

You can just copy the text of a chat, or comment in whichever app you’re using, and a translation will pop up right there — no need to switch apps.

As before now, you can only be able to translate a text by first going to the Google Translate app, and type in the text you want to translate in order to receive the meaning in a different language.

Google's "Tap to Translate" also works for all 103 of Translate App supported languages on any Android phone running Jellybean (4.2) and above.

Next on the list of big improvements, is Offline Mode which now works on iOS, and you'll need to download the package for any given language to be ready to do text translations whether you’re online or not, and it works with Tap to Translate.

Lastly, is the Word Lens in Chinese - Google's 29th language for instant visual translation, and it reads both to and from English, for both Simplified and Traditional Chinese. As with all Word Lens languages, it works offline.

It allows users translate a language by opening the app and holding their phone cameras to the text. Try it on menus, signs, packages, and other printed text.

News that Google's Play Store (the official app store for the Android operating system) is coming to Chrome OS, the secure lightweight OS powering Chromebooks, was indeed applauded as users will be able to download and install apps made for Android, thus expanding the base of applications available for those devices.

While Chromebooks have been touted as successful in the enterprise, albeit it lacks app compatibility, as before now, Chromebooks were only able to run applications built for Chrome, but which is lacking applications compared to Android.

By bringing the two platforms together, Google will expand the utility of Chromebooks, which will better equip businesses and schools with apps they want, without requiring developers to build a separate Chrome app.

If you're a developer with a group of Android devices in your family, and probably have been impatiently waiting for Google to implement some type of digital sharing option, Google has tipped Family Library launch in the Google Play Developer Support documents.

With all new app purchases having this feature enabled by default, developers have been given the option to opt out, or to make their previous sales compatible.

And now that Chromebooks will be running Android apps, it’s even more important that buyers can bring their family’s digital content along. Meanwhile, developers who want to test their Android apps on Chrome can do so using Asus Chromebook Flip, Chromebook Pixel, and Acer Chromebook R11 starting in June, while the rest of consumers will have to wait till fall.

Google on Wednesday's I/O keynote, showed off what it termed "Android Instant Apps" — Android apps running instantly, without requiring installation. It means Android apps will show up in the Google search results on Android devices, and users will be able to quickly find and open an app without installing it, more like a webpage.

With Android Instant Apps, just a tap on URL in a search result will open an app, even if the user hasn’t installed the app.

While most analysts have painted a picture of Android outgrowing the mobile web, the reverse may as well be the impending reality.

According to Suresh Ganapathy, group product manager on the Android team, it afford users access to a wider range of apps, and for developers to reach more people. With the Web, you can just click on a link and land on a webpage. That’s one click, and land in a few seconds. What if you could run any app on one tap via the web?

That’s exactly what Android Instant Apps is working at actualizing, and invariably means mobile app merging with the web.

As with the web, you can click on a link and land on a web page — it takes one click and just a few seconds, so too, Instant Apps make it easier for users to access a wider range of apps, and for developers to reach more people.

Why Opt For Cloud Storage Solutions?

Posted by John Onwuegbu | 9:15 AM |

Cloud storage as a backup and storage service on the Internet, means efficient online storage that is a convenient substitute to big external hard drives.

Meanwhile, companies that offer cloud storage to businesses, and organizations are starting to gain prominence is view of the current challenges on enterprise information retrieval and storage requirements.

How Cheap are Cloud storage solutions?

Some cloud storage services are cheaper than others yet still give the perfect solutions for storing your files. Just imagine why you should pay for a larger physical space to store all of your external hard drives compared to having the Internet to do the storage.

The Cloud guarantees easier file access

Imagine yourself looking for a certain file in a vast number of external hard drives; it is like looking for a needle in a haystack. First, you have to see the label of each external hard drive then access each one if it has the file that you are looking for. Obviously, the experience can be terrible. But, with the use of a cloud storage service, you just need to log on to the system, click search, and type the keyword of the file that you are looking for and in a twinkling of an eye, you're there.

Through the use cloud storage solutions, you can save effort, time, and most importantly, the physical room for your activities.
