A look back on the week in Andromo, Android, Mobile, and stuff… Tomorrow is a holiday here so I’m releasing the Week in Review one day early.

Design Design Design

Here is an very interesting interview with Matias Duarte, Director, Android User Experience at Google. There are not a lot of specifics discussed in the video, but if you want a hint at where Android is going, or if you are interested in design give it a watch.

Developers! Developers! Developers!

Registration for Google’s annual developer conference “Google I/O” opened up this week. If you want to go to the conference you have until 2:00 PM PDT on April 18 to register. Visit the main Google I/O website to register or just to browse what the conference has to offer.

App Stores Galore

On Tuesday I published a list of Android app stores on the blog. This turned out to be one of the most popular blog posts we’ve ever had here, so Android and Andromo developers are obviously interested in alternatives. Check out the post and let me know if I’ve missed any stores.

New Camera App

Google released a new Camera app on the 16th called (you guessed it) Google Camera. This might come as an automatic update or you might have to download it manually, either way it’s free and a nice improvement, plus you get “Lens Blur” option in this version:

Ice, Ice Update

The ice “sculpture” draining from a rooftop in the back alley is finally starting to melt. As is winter’s death grip on Winnipeg, rejoice!

Releasing a new app?

Last but not least, if you are releasing a new app in upcoming week let me know about it (either as a comment or on twitter) and I might feature it here. Have a good weekend folks, and we’ll see you back here on Monday.
