Android OS Version 1.1

Android version 1.1 Logo

On March 9, 2009, Google released the Android version 1.1. Android version is equipped with an aesthetic update to the application, alarm clock, voice search (voice search), sending messages with Gmail, and email notifications.

There are a few API's changes available for development including:
  • Adds annotations for test systems, no actual (non-test) API changes.
  • Adds a method to allow a process to easily determine its UID.
  • Adds support for marquee in layouts.
  • Adds new methods for determining padding in views. Useful if you are writing your own subclasses of View.
  • Adds new permissions that allow an application to broadcast an SMS or WAP Push message.
  • API cleanup: removes protected constructor from SDK-bound system images.
