Improving Mobile UX with Apache DeviceMap
We experience a growing number of mobile phones, tablets, phablets, smart TV and similar devices flooding the market almost every day. If you want to create a comfortable user experience you need dynamic content according to hardware and browser of your device. That’s the reason for Device Description Repositories (DDR). Apache DeviceMap started in January 2012, after OpenDDR contributed data and APis. It graduated from Apache Incubator November 2014. Next steps include an improved data format, maintenance of device data by the community via common API based on REST/OAuth and XML or JSON.
