You might not know it yet, but if you’re a developer and you use the Google Play Developer Console to submit pull requests to Google, you can get access to some pretty sweet APIs.
Google recently introduced an API for developers to use to tweak their apps, which you can access through the Google Developer Console.
But what is this API?
Is it worth using?
Let’s dive into it, shall we?
Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
The Google Play API for Developers is basically like the Google Developers Console.
It’s a dashboard of APIs available to developers.
You can browse the API by clicking on the “API” tab, then under “API Keys” you can select a specific API key.
Here’s how it works:When you enter your API key in the API tab, you’ll see a list of all APIs available for you to use.
You’ll also see a little bar with the API key displayed, where you can press “Next.”
The API key then updates, showing you your access to the API.
So when you submit a pull request, you’re going to be prompted to enter your key to the APIs section of the Google developer console.
Now let’s take a look at some of the APIs that developers can use to improve their apps.
The most popular API is “Image Manipulation” which lets you manipulate images in your app.
Image manipulation is really useful for developers who want to add animations or effects to their apps or even tweak the UI of their apps to make it easier to navigate or share content.
The APIs can be used to:Draw on the screen to add a small, animated blur effect to your app’s interface.
Change the colors of a portion of the screen in your UI by drawing over the portion of your app with the given API key (eg.
“Change the background of the UI with the specified API key”).
Create animated GIFs using the “GIFImageManager” class.
Use the “ImageRenderer” class to create a static animated GIF that can be embedded in your page.
You can also add animations to your existing animations using the ImageRenderers class, but it’s a little more complex and you’ll want to read up on it first before you dive into this.
For developers who use the Image Manipulation API, the “PreviewImage” class lets you preview images and make edits in your images.
This class is particularly useful for people who want their images to be smaller or more easily recognizable than what they actually are, or if you need to add some extra flair to your image.
The “ImageToolbar” class is used to display image thumbnails and previews of your image on the left-hand side of the app.
This lets you quickly access a variety of images and preview their content, as well as the size and position of the image itself.
The “ImageSelection” class provides a quick way to select an image from the app and quickly manipulate it to modify its properties.
The ImageViewer class provides an easy way to add new content to your images, such as a scroll bar, a custom caption, or more.
For users who are more comfortable with the “image editor” class, there are two more APIs that you can use.
The first is “Paint” which gives you access to all the paint capabilities in your apps.
The second is “Crop” which allows you to apply a variety to your content, including scaling, rotate, and blur effects.
The first API is called “Painted” and it provides access to a variety “paint brushes.”
These brushes allow you to create paint effects on your content by applying a variety in paint effects.
In general, you could create a series of effects, such that the effect is applied to each of the three colors in the input range (eg, light blue, dark blue, or green).
The first brush can be applied to the background color, then the background and foreground, and so on.
In addition, you might apply a series to the entire screen, to make your content more visible or less visible.
The next brush can also be applied as an effect to a particular part of your content.
For example, you may want to apply some effects to a large portion of an image.
You might want to fill in an area with a red and white outline, for example.
In this example, we’d apply a “light blue” effect to the image with a light blue background.
Then, to apply the effect to all of the images on your screen, we would apply the next brush to the right-hand-side of the canvas.
The final brush is applied as a full effect to each image.
This is what we call the “punching effect” in art-school parlance.
You apply the same brush to each area of your screen and you see the effect happen.
This can make it easy to understand the way the artworks are generated and how they look
