Key Lime Pie: What we want to see
Here are the top five features we hope to see in Key Lime Pie
Android Key Lime Pie is expected to arrive this spring and in the spirit of wishful thinking we’ve decided to list those must-have features, which we’re hoping will arrive with the update -- apart from the Nexus X, of course!
Apple has FaceTime, BlackBerry 10 has BBM Video Chat. It’s time Android had native, easy-to-use video chat functionality to allow users to speak face-to-face without having to prat about with Google+ hangouts for half an hour.
It’s 2013, Google, we don’t want to have to change audio settings, disable functions and sync options, etc., manually. It would be nice to be able to set user profiles to determine what functions are switched on and off and it would be even nicer for them to be timed or determined by GPS!
Improved social network integration
There are some killer social networking apps out there for Android, but we’d love nothing more than to be able to tap our details into a core app and watch our notifications come rolling in.
Jelly Bean looks fantastic and we have no doubt that the folks at Google are working hard to ensure that Key Lime Pie does too, but it would still be great to be able to apply themes to our devices, which alter the appearance, widgets and sound options available.
Last, but by no means least, we’d love to be able to back our device up in the cloud, so we can restore all of our information with minimal fuss. App and game data included. It’s nice that Android remembers what apps we had downloaded, but what about our settings within them, and our saved games too?
