Android M includes RRO, a novelty created by Sony that allows you to modify the aesthetics of the system and the apps without modifying the code, and thus not impair performance.
As a user, consider customization layers They have been one of the biggest problems experienced by the Android platform. Although it can be argued that some like Sense long were nicer than the design that Google brought to AOSP (blessed Matias Duarte), which also had very interesting unique features such as multi-window (TouchWiz) , the fact is that for users, has been an issue that has brought many more headaches than benefits. In fact, that many users want to experience both the Nexus (also from Motorola) is no coincidence. They are advanced users, yes, but know their benefits.
Android M includes a function which, from my point of view, is created to help OEMs, but also to end the visual and fragmentation layers, but nevertheless allowing differentiation.
XDA Developers have descuebierto that Android M supports natively RRO , a framework that was created by Sony and then ceded by the company to the Android Open Source Project. Interface allows you to modify applications without having to create new applications, or modify its code. It does not change its operation or its estabiliad, and that’s what we’ve always wanted users on the platform. That is, we understand that in such a saturated market, differentiation is vital to compete against other manufacturers, but this need never have to be tied to a poor performance.
RRO is the most ambitious plan to unify the Android experience while maintaining the different layers of customization
Although it is a function that might Cyanogen be implemented and other ROMs as the current system of themes, it really is designed to change by OEMs managers to customize Android to its terminals. On the one hand I think it is making life easier for development teams deadlines update , and second, to ensure the system performance because, like it or not, that is a point that until now could tarnish the image of Android.
As shown in the above screenshot, Alan Vivarette , Senior Software Engineer at Google, explained that the new implemented so manufacturers can serve to modify aspects as colors or icons, but does not mention anything about playing the system, because it is not about that. He adds that the new Android dark mode M can also be exploited by all apps, as it provides Material as part of Design.
Obviously, this new Android M may or may not exploited by the manufacturers , but if you really want to provide a quality experience, I think is a great idea to implement the resources that Google is making available and that Nexus that experience can get modified, but not destroyed to all Androids market. Out of this consideration it is, of course, the companies want to add additional functions. That goes for elsewhere and if you need to change the system. But it’s a start
