How can I enhance my Android app's UX?

An introductory listing of the Samsung SDKs that your apps can integrate to improve your users' UX (including: graphic presentation, audio playback and recording, input, and user management)

The following Samsung SDK functionality can fit right in to your Android app and expand your users' horizons.

Look S-Pen SmartClip Screen and Metadata Capture

SmartClip 

Enables enhanced screen capture that also captures app-specified metadata (text, URLs, and URIs) that your users can:

  • Use their S-Pen to capture part of a screen that contains one or more views with SmartClip metadata.
  • Can capture displayed text, graphics, metadata text, URLs, and URIs.
  • Can review, copy, and use displayed and metadata text.
  • Can browse to bookmarks, and send URLs and URIs to friends using social media.

 For more details, see Integrating SmartClip.

 

Pen SDK

Enables your Galaxy device apps to provide your users with:

  • Handwritten input (using fingers, Samsung S-Pens, other virtual pens, and real pens and styluses) that enables users to feel as if they are writing on a notepad
  • Advanced editing features
  • Shape recognition and editing
  • Handwriting-to-text conversion

For SDK download, release notes, programming guides and API references (light and full versions), sample apps, and more, see the Pen website (http://developer.samsung.com/galaxy/pen).

Samsung Motion SDK

Motion SDK

Enables your app to initiate actions based on your users' movement of their device. This imitation is determined by a variety of device sensors. Some sensors perform quickly, such as answering a phone call by recognizing that the user has moved the device to his or her ear. Some sensors perform over a longer period of time; for example, tracking the number of steps a user walks.

For SDK download, release notes, programming guide, API reference, and more, see the Motion website (http://developer.samsung.com/galaxy/motion).

Samsung Camera SDK

Camera SDK

Enables your Galaxy device enhanced camera-based apps to provide your users with state-of-the-art features, such as control-based hardware, convenient smart modes, various real-time filters, and fast processing of large images.
