Help is on the horizon for mobile developers dealing with the nuances of the numerous Android OS versions in circulation — at least if they’re developing Web-style apps.
An upcoming upgrade to the open source Apache Cordova device APIs will accommodate third-party WebViews to help developers get their apps up and running on the various Android versions, says Joe Bowser, a primary lead at Adobe Systems for Cordova on Android. This support comes in version 4.0 of Cordova, which is expected later this year, with Intel’s Crosswalk slated as the first WebView supported.
