Whats different about this app is that it was developed by a third-party, a firm called Telerik. In development, the company used a front-end framework called Kendu UI and Google’s still wet behind the ears Packaged Apps Platform that enable engineers to develop applications for Google Chrome. Apparently Telerik worked very closely with to develop an application that can be effectively used as a reference application for engineers who want to write advanced apps. This would be utilized with the Packaged Apps platform and the Kendu User Interface Libraries. For the reason that this is all still fairly new, the two companies will host a webinar with the subject of how to build packaged applications with the Kendo User Interface as it’s theme. This will go down on Wednesday, December 5th at 2p.m. Eastern Standard. As a special treat they are going to give away 10 Google Chromebooks.
As for the camera application, it offers some nice photo features like mirror, bulge and pinch. It has some neat features like face recognition and some custom effects. For the reason that this app was developed with native properties it can be accessed whether on or offline. Though the app has a web backend, it still functions just like your typical desktop app, which is nice.
