  • As the Nexus 4 smartphone and Nexus 10 tablet were launched yesterday, Google found the time to release the Android 4.2 software developer kit to app developers. The SDK offers support for new lock screen widgets, the Daydream interactive screen saver and the secondary displays. It also adds multiple user accounts and a bunch more features.

    The newest Android also brings gesture typing, AirPlay-style Miracast screen sharing and that famous quick settings pull down menu. There’s obviously Photo Sphere, the 360 panorama feature that everyone is praising. The Android Open Source Project boss Jean-Baptiste Queru announced in a post on the web that the full Android 4.2 source has been merged with the AOSP code, being available for custom ROM developers.

    We’ve also got some sad news: Nexus S and Motorola Xoom have reached the end of the line as far as support goes, so they only remain at Android 4.1.2 for the time being. I have to admit that from all the features above, one of them stood out for me, since I haven’t heard of it: Daydream. Apparently this is an interactive screensaver mode that users can find on their devices when they’re charging or docked in a desk dock. They can include any type of content, which is cool.
