Imi spun cititorii ca Apple a furat notificarile de la Android. Poate ca ideea seamana, dar felul in care Apple a reusit sa le puna in practica bate orice interfata stock sau modata de Android OS. BGR spune lucrurilor pe nume:
How do you access Notification Center? You simply swipe down from the top of the device and a drawer-like panel slides down and displays your notifications. It sounds familiar, yes, but it’s really so much more than what we’ve seen in Android so far.
How does this differ from Android? Well, for starters, Android populates your status bar at the top of the device with the icon of the app from which you received a notification, and when you run out of screen space, it hides the rest. To see your actual notifications, you pull down the notification pane, and they are listed in there in order from newest to oldest. And you have zero control over those notifications. All you can do is clear them all, or tap them one by one, which brings you into the app that notified you, until they are all clear. You can’t prioritize, choose the sort order, determine what apps you want to actually be in that drawer — nothing.
Beyond Apple’s superior Notification Center UI and the great widget support, initially for weather forecasts and a real-time stock ticker, the company that usually doesn’t give users such fine grain control completely delivers this time. Notification Center lets you chose not only the order in which your notifications are sorted, but also how many notifications from each app you’d like to display (either 1, 5, or 10), and whether or not they appear on the lock screen.
Concluzia lor e simpla: Apple nu a imprumutat Notificarile de la Android OS ci le-a furat.
Apple stole it, which is why the implementation is as good as it is. If Apple borrowed it, we’d all just have a drawer stuffed full of dirty socks. And notifications.
Sa ne aducem aminte si de Napster sau de mp3 playerele care existau in urma cu zece ani. Cum? Nu iti aduci aminte nicio marca de mp3 player de acum zece ani? Apple a facut atunci iPod-ul si lumea a uitat de ele.
Sa nu uitam rasul sarcastic al lui Balmer atunci cind a vazut un smartphone cu touchscreen si un singur buton. Un device de genul ala aparut in era Blackberry era sortit esecului, spunea el. Si totusi Apple au lucrat in stilul lor si acum lumea se invarte in jurul iPhone.
