  • New Web Series Dubbed "Route 85" Aimed at Helping Devs Create iOS Apps with Google SDKs


    Google recently announced a new series of developer outreach videos dubbed, “Route 85,” which looks to facilitate expanded use of Google’s iOS SDKs in third-party app creations. Developer advocate Todd Kerpelman gave a brief rundown of what viewers can expect from the upcoming show in a short ad which was displayed on the official Google Developers YouTube channel, uploaded alongside with a post on the group’s Google+ page. Kerpelman had the following to say regarding the matter:

    We have a whole bunch of crazy smart engineers that are building dozens of apps for iOS devices. And we have SDKs available for everything from Maps, to analytics, to games that you could use to power your own apps.
    According to the video, Google is planning to use the show to inform developers about new libraries released for iOS along with tips from Google engineers on creating Google-powered apps. It’s an interesting perception to see how Google fits into the developer mix. The company has built a number of high performance developer tools for iOS but it isn’t considered an “iOS company” purely because it created and successfully marketed Android, Apple’s rival mobile OS. Despite this, Google continues to look for ways to create apps on Apple’s platform beyond its own in-house initiatives like the recently updated Google search app for iOS.

    As of right now, Route 85 is set to make its debut on the Google Developers’ YouTube channel in the near future. In the meantime, those of you interested in seeing the ad can do so below:

      that's one thing I never understood, why would Google give anything to Apple for app development.

      competition drives progress. give your competitors tools to create something extraordinary, than you yourself must raise the bar to outdo competition.
