This mode could be activated by long pressing on the app. When screen is split, first app would appear on the upper section of screen, in portrait mode and other app can be run in the other section of the screen with resizing functionality. Resizing of an app on the screen could be done by dragging its borders over the screen to cover the space. Resizing is not possible while in landscape mode because screen will divided in equal halves. This functionality brings background multi-tasking to foreground multitasking. This is how android nougat makes user to not only monitor multitasking but perform also.

UI tuner was in marshmallow as a hidden feature but android nougat bring it as enhanced feature. Most of such features are still under testing.

Android nougat would also facilitate users to adjust screen zoom size making it easy for the useful for the users who have weak eye sight. This function will adjust size of the size of the display making it more prominent and visible.

Android Nougat presents doze mode as more advanced. It not only works when device is stationed but when in motion or shaken with variation in its degree. It works obviously when display is off and hibernates. Its hibernation can be of varying degree/sub set of restrictions shutting synchronization or tasks running in the background. It is one the energy saving tools to extend battery life to put restriction when display is turned off.

Locale Support and New Emojis:

Multi locale support is quite helpful for multi lingual users. Android Nougat allows users to set multiple languages as primary and secondary languages and switch between them easily. New 72 emojis including various skin tones and expressions has been introduce which can be accessed by sliding right. Android Nougat not only support more languages but also their enhanced variants such as Arabic, English, French and Spanish. It also have partial variant support for many other languages also.

Android Nougat, What Google Changed Vulkan lava

Vulkan Support:

Google officially adds vulkan, java and jdk API for making app and games rendering easy for the developers. Android Nougat officially supports java 8 for making it easy for developers to test apps and support. It will help developers to choose between high and low performance sticks to run high graphics games. Vulkan API is only visible to apps. Vulkan supporting devices are such as Nexus 5SX, Nexus 6P and Nexus player.

Seamless and Fast:

Efforts has been done make Android Nougat faster and seamless. It is made faster to introduce the by introducing multiple restriction plans to stop background tasks and preload date to make it look seamless and fast. Concept of seamless updates has been introduced which means updates will be downloaded and installed in the background without bothering user. Downloaded updates will be saved on a separate partition over the memory and installed when phone is restarted.

In the race to make android more exciting and useful, android nougat certainly have appeal. From its appearance to its functionality, it has improvised than previous ones.  It gives more control to user through UI Tuner and gives user opportunity to express himself through messages, skins and emojis. It gives user authority to manage multiple tasks simultaneously and monitor them. It also makes user more secure by device encryption (device data) and file based encryption (user data). Now, user can direct boot from the system without enabling developer options. Android Nougat Officially supports Daydream VR and project tango. Blue light night mode is also one of its charms. Even, any app can be forced to appear in split screen mode even if it has not been designed to appear in split screen.

Nougat is going to faster, seamless and tough. But only Nexus user will be the first to receive its update while other have to wait to get it.

Virtual Reality – History, Types and Development

What is Virtual Reality:

Virtual reality comes from the definition of both virtual and reality. “Virtual” is something near and “reality” is human experience. It refers to technologies with high user interface which would give user sensation of reality. It is made through simulation of multiple sensational channels and interactions such as sound and images. It is often defined as artificial environment created with the help of technological gadgets giving sensation of an actual object is called “near reality” or virtual reality. This concept has suddenly started appearing into headline whereas it has been struggling through decades.

Virtual Reality, History and Types

Virtual Reality IDea:

Virtual reality became popular in early 90s when it came as topic for movies and games. In 1950s, a cinematographer Morton Heilig envision a theatre which would stimulate audience to draw them into stories more effectively. In 1960, he actually built a console called “sensorama” for single audience which used a display, speakers, fans, moving chair and odor emitter to give audience a reality based experience.

It actually came from 1950 when computer used to be huge were kept inside air-conditioned rooms.  Only a few people considered them more than just adding machines. But a young electrical engineer and naval radar technician named Douglas Englbart viewed them as source for digital display. Initially, flight simulators were used by US air force to train pilots during WWII.

Philco cooperation made a helmet called “Headsight” in 1961. This helmet had a screen and tracking system linked with closed circuit camera to enable user to feel the remote experience.  Later on, when the communication industry intercepted with computing and graphics technology, it replaced use of vacuum tubes with transistors and paved way for virtual reality.

NASA spend a huge amount of money on the research to fund the virtual reality projects. These researches were initially used to make vehicles to simulate training. Virtual reality has been away from public sight for long time. Then in 1984, Michael McGreevy, a computer scientist experimented for advancement in HCI (Human Computer Interactions) design. Media gave hype to the concept of virtual reality after 1960s and many other people started expecting to perform great things with virtual reality.

Types of Virtual Reality:

Virtual reality has many types such as

  1. Desktop Virtual Reality uses a computer display to present a graphical interface to the user. It gives user a 3D interface very close to real time objects. It is used in entertainment industry and gaming to give user 3D experience of the visual.
  2. Telepresence has a significance impact on industry and training. Telepresence system controls the processes and operation of a device at distance. Generally, these systems are based upon tactile input, similar capturing a real world visual and determining the response of a robot based upon the visual processing.
  3. Enhanced Reality is based upon creating touch like sensation using magnetic field. Giving user a high quality graphical interface a touch stimulus similar to actual one which can be useful in practice field specially when surgeon practicing operations.
  4. Immersive Virtual Reality is like creating an artificial world, giving someone experience of an actual world by surrounding him with nonphysical graphical images and sound and other stimulus.
  5. QTVR (Quick Time Virtual Reality) stores 360 degree image data as an image file format to convey actual presence of the environment. It takes a number of still pictures and creates a movie by combining those pictures.

Development in Virtual Reality:

It is thought that VR is a new concept whereas it has be

en there but hidden from the eye of the public. It has applications in many field like architecture, Sports and entertainment, education etc. Many gadget has been developed based upon virtual reality and still work continuous. Virtual reality glasses and displays has been launched to which actually gives the impression of a real time object. This concept has been widely used in film making to make high graphics image movements giving audience impression that they are not just watching a movie, instead they are living it. Not just I entertainment industry, but in robotics also.

Virtual Reality, History and Types Development

Robots are being made self-sufficient so that they could react upon certain on receive of certain kind of visual. Manufacture of such robots who could understand human emotions are example of this. Such 3D games has been launched which gives user sensation of actually living the game. Learning has become more effect through the concept of interactive learning which became possible by development in VR.

Virtual reality is not just limited to high quality 3D visuals but sound and other stimulus also. Many companies have launched headsets to give high quality sound impression along with images. Facebook’s owned consumer headset; Rift and HTC Vive are example of these. In coming days, it is going to be more advanced and present more powerful tools.

Google Updates Penguin 4.0 (Now Become The Core Algorithm)

Google Penguin is a filtered mechanism or algorithm, which find out the Google web spam search results. Because Google usual system can not deduct those spammy results. In simple words, Google Penguin find out those sites who are performing spamming activities in search engine. If Google Penguin filter find your website spammy so it would be penalized across Google search engine.

Google Updates Penguin 4.0 (Now Become The Core Algorithm)

As we know that, Google Penguin 3.0 was updated in 2014 October and on that time, Google Penguin penalized so many website which was free after two years in search engine again. But right now the strategy is completely different because now Google Penguin 4.0 coming with real time re-crawling or re-indexing, means if the webmasters doing the changes after crawling and revert back their changes to spam then this real time will check the pages constantly and if they found any spamming so it would be penalized.

Google Official Said;

With this change, Penguin’s data is refreshed in real time, so changes will be visible much faster, typically taking effect shortly after we re-crawl and re-index a page.

They also declared;

Penguin now devalues spam by adjusting ranking based on spam signals, rather than affecting ranking of the whole site.

Which means Penguin will impact on specific pages of the site not the entire site like before. Google Penguin 4.0 is not fully live in real time yet and I think it will take slightly time to come live (Couple of days from now).

Now according to this Google official statements, if your particular web pages is under spamming position so it will not put impact on whole site, so your entire website will not be punished for this single page on your site. I personally found this Google Penguin update very useful for webmasters from various perspectives.

According to my perception a website can be proven better than your thoughts. Just you need a right direction and right person who put you at the top of the stairs without facing any troubles.

To start a website, just you need a .com/.net/.info/.org/.edu domain name and a secure hosting server to start your journey.

What Google Says About Link Building

Here I have just a short review of my research related to search engine optimization, nowadays almost bloggers are doing the same thing which is link building through guest blogging. Almost are paid links, even some companies following the same strategy. But did you ever think a moment, what Google think or stated that kind of link building. In simple words I mean to say what Google says about link building in the sense of guest blogging.

What Google Says About Link Building

What Google Says About Link Building:

In Google links schemes everything is transparent for everyone.

Google clearly says “Buying or selling links that pass PageRank. This includes exchanging money for links, or posts that contain links; exchanging goods or services for links; or sending someone a “free” product in exchange for them writing about it and including a link” This can negatively impact a site’s ranking in search results.

In summary, if think about usual marketing companies who are offering link building services doing the same thing, which is against Google polices. In the recent year we wrote an article about Rise and fall of guest blogging which reflects the almost same thing.

What is the Bottom Line:

Here Google also described in their link schemes that create high quality content which gains popularity naturally on internet community. Also said that, link are additional points for you, and someone find your content really valuable for their own readers and they link to it. So here Google already put their perceptions and quality guidelines, which users needs to memorize it before go ahead.

Guest blogging is Good but if someone is doing that task only the sake of link building so that doesn’t make sense from Google point of view or a tragic glitch for your site future. Google also said that, if you are not sure about link which your guest blogger put inside their content so simply use Nofollow meta tag with this link. You must read about What is nofollow and dofollow rel attributes.

Remove URL Of Deleted Pages From Search Results

This question can be slightly tricky for almost beginners that how to remove URL of deleted pages from search results. First of all we need to know that why they need to delete those pages? What the reasons are there you should follow-up. The most significant cause is 404 errors on your website. Which cannot be tolerated because it impact your search engine ranking as well as on user experience with your website.

Remove URL Of Deleted Pages From Search Results:

I saw similar question on many forums but everyone has their own perspective on this issue. So I just decided to raise this question among KnowledgeIDea readers. Removing URLs temporarily or permanently from Google search engine snippets or results is no more difficult. Google put this ability or you can say feature in your Google webmaster tool but that is temporarily according to Google saying. But on that time what, if someone probably you delete your website post or pages but till that time Google crawled it.

This means Google listed your website this particular page in their database, now it will be appear when someone call it. But the issue is that this web page no longer exist on your website. So in these cases there are several solutions based on your strategy and circumstances.

By Using Google Webmaster Tools:

Go to your webmaster account then simply go inside your website webmaster dashboard interface. Navigate to Google Index > Remove URLs add your URLs there and hide and remove your URLs from Google search as well as from Google cache too.

Remove URL Of Deleted Pages From Search Results

Google will remove this URLs after sometime, because here Google described this is temporarily so mostly folks can be confuse but think if you already deleted this and it is no longer exist so how Google crawl it again and how it come back again so this means it is permanently if your web page doesn’t exist anymore.

By Using Redirection:

Mostly times you don’t want to lose that traffic, even 404 not found users who are getting this error. So in this case, first use the above method to submit your request to Google to remove these particular URLs. Then secondly, till that when Google receive your request and implement on it, your website losing probably many users so how to tackle or avail from this traffic. I know these are 404 errors but fact is that they are humans and they are not getting any results from you for which they came to your site.

So if I said also get advantage from this traffic too, so this means use 301 redirection method in this case or simply redirection. For this must read our article on How to Redirect Old URLs to New URLs in WordPress.

There are another several way such as use Meta Robots Tags noindex attribute, which can stop search engine to crawl this page. But above are well experienced and good to go. We mentioned above all superior ways, in fact I would like to say implemented ways of remove URL of deleted pages from search results.
