Google highlights Play Store's Best of 2018

Google highlights Play Store's Best of 2018

According to the announcement, unsurprisingly, PUBG Mobile was the "Fan Favorite" game for the year.

The idea is that app developers can write an app once, and deploy it on both Apple iOS and Android. The reason for being pushed off the platform were alleged as fraud claims against the developers.

In the 1.0 debut of Flutter, the Google engineering team added some new features based on lessons learned during the long preview period, especially around adding Flutter code incrementally to existing apps or the reverse: embedding an Android or iOS platform control into an existing Flutter app. Flutter has been in beta for 10 months, but now it's being released to the public.

The Flutter 1.0 release today is the result of all of that testing and playing around, and brings about some new features including a new version of Dart. Now, as far as Google's very own awards are concerned, Drops: Learn 31 new languages won the "Best App of 2018" award, while PUBG Mobile actually won the "Best Game of 2018" award by Google as well.

Both developers can consider appealing to Google to restore their app services.




In addition to the above, a new section was introduced: Fan Favourite.

"Additionally, Flutter's use of the Dart programming language makes Flutter significantly faster than alternative cross-platform toolkits (or, feasibly, programs developed without the use of said toolkits.) Google touts it as "[being] able to support glitch-free, jank-free graphics at the native speed of your device", and compiling to native 32 or 64-bit ARM code for iOS and Android. Previously this kind of graphic effect was much trickier to create, since it required using one app to design the graphics and another to animate them. "Stateful hot reload transforms the way developers build an app - and in user surveys, developers say it makes their development cycle three times more productive". Developers can overlay the animations with text, graphical layers and user interface widgets, he said.

Flutter could play a larger part in Google's plans for the Fuchsia operating system, which has been in development at Google since 2016, though no formal announcement of its goal has been made.

That's why UI toolkits, which he said have always been neglected, are making a comeback.
