Lo avevamo anticipato proprio ieri e oggi ne ha annunciato la disponibilità direttamente il produttore coreano, tramite un comunicato stampa. LG ha annunciato il rilascio dell’SDK QCircle per gli sviluppatori Android, i quali potranno sfruttarlo per realizzare funzioni uniche per il suo top di gamma G3.
Questo, insieme agli altri SDK che sono già disponibili (QPair, QSlide e QRemote), consentirà agli sviluppatori Android di realizzare qualsiasi funzione vogliano e di migliorare l’esperienza utente degli smartphone a marchio LG, non solo di G3 quindi.
Inoltre, il produttore coreano terrà nei prossimi giorni un evento dedicato agli sviluppatori a San Francisco, dove saranno presenti tutti gli SDK sopraccitati. Potete scaricare il nuovo SDK QCircle da questa pagina, mentre per maggiori informazioni e per saperne di più sull’evento potete dare uno sguardo al comunicato stampa qui sotto.

Full Suite of LG SDKs Showcased during Google I/O at Second Annual LG Developer Event
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., June 9, 2014 – LG Electronics today announced the availability of its new QCircle SDK (software development kit), enabling Android developers to hook into simplified UI features unique to its latest flagship smartphone, the LG G3. Joining LG’s QSlide Function and QRemote SDK, which are also based on features inherent to LG devices, the LG QCircle SDK provides a new opportunity for developers to tap into LG’s popular G series smartphones for an enhanced user experience.
LG – the maker of the acclaimed G smartphone series, LG G Pad 8.3 tablet and innovative, curved LG G Flex – will give Google I/O attendees the exclusive chance to explore LG SDKs during the second annual LG Developer Event on June 24 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the W Hotel in San Francisco. During the evening event, LG mobile engineers will provide technical talks and deep dive walkthroughs of each LG SDK.
Developers attending the event will be treated to special giveaways, as part of LG’s Developer Loaner Device Program. The LG Loaner Device Program gives developers access to build and test their apps on the newest LG devices. By arming developers with the latest software, hardware and app store channels, LG is facilitating faster innovation so developers can focus on monetizing their apps.
Simple is the New Smart
LG SDKs that will be featured at the 2014 LG Developer Event include QCircle, QSlide Function, QRemote:
- LG QCircle is a new folio case that lets users receive and interact with basic functions of their smartphone directly from the round QuickCircle window, without having to open the case. With the new LG QCircle SDK, developers can enhance their apps with this redefined UX, making their apps compatible and directly accessible from the QuickCircle window.
- LG QSlide Function amps up multitasking, letting users open multiple apps that can be resized and moved to float on the screen. Developers that leverage the LG Qslide Function SDK, simplify toggling between apps that can be resized into small windows that users can still see even when they run other apps.
- LG QRemote enables LG smartphones to easily become universal remote controls that are compatible with many different IR (infrared) home entertainment systems. The LG QRemote SDK provides APIs to control IR-controlled devices easily, so developers can quickly enable their apps for the connected home.
- LG QPair is a feature that provides a seamless environment between Android phones running Android 4.1 or later and LG tablets. With the QPair SDK, set for release soon, developers can create interesting apps that run over the QPair connection. For example, calls can be received, messages can be sent and SNS can be updated on one device while simultaneously being synced with other devices.
