Device API Usage and Trends

almost 4 years ago

Mobile computing devices enable a greater range of applications than their desktop counterparts purely by being mobile. There are also features that are unique to, or much more relevant on mobile devices. In our last survey we asked developers about their plans for and usage of device APIs related to these features to gauge how much different groups of developers are taking advantage of mobility. The device APIs we asked about in our survey were those available to HTML5 developers, which allows us to compare their usage versus native developers across the most popular platforms.

Rather unsurprisingly, it turns out that HTML5 developers make less use of almost all device APIs than native developers. A lot of web developers are targeting desktop as well as mobile platforms and as such are less likely to build functionality that relies on mobile device specific APIs. However, that does seem to be changing as HTML5 developers are among the most likely to say they’re planning to use the majority of device APIs. You can see the popularity of each of the APIs covered in our survey by primary platform in the interactive chart below...

Machine learning is revolutionary because it gives computers the ability to solve problems without being explicitly programmed. In a conventional computer algorithm, a programmer will specify the rules that explicitly determine what their software will do. ML algorithms work differently. At a hi...  ...Read more

I am 27 years old, and only left the 9–5 world one year ago. Before that, I was an aspiring entrepreneur. I pursued side projects in my spare time. I worked with people individually (for free) so I could learn and improve. I invested a significant amount of time building my own personal brand — ...  ...Read more

In a prior life as a CTO, when you asked one of the best engineers on my team if he could build something, his typical answer was “it’s just typing.” He knew what to do; it just took time. But is that what he should be doing? Now as a VC, I help early-stage startups create their version of the f...  ...Read more

It’s easy to come up with a hundred names for your product, but how do you pick the right one? Most naming guides attribute the decision making process to instinct or a loose framework. However a key component tends to be missing from the process — user or customer validation. While there’s no...  ...Read more

Better Persuasion Through Acceptance I was at a sales seminar about a year ago, when I heard a piece of advice so stereotypically salesy that I nearly did a spit-take: “you can’t be willing to take ‘no’ for an answer”. Sure it was actually not that candidly said, but distilled down, that was c...  ...Read more
