LG Debuts SDK for the G3's QuickCircle Case
Jun 10, 2014, 7:57 AM by Eric M. Zeman
LG today made an SDK available to developers that will allow them to tap into the QuickCircle case accessory that goes along with the G3. The QuickCircle case handles several different tasks. First, the case has a circular window to the G3's screen through which users can view the time, place calls, send text messages, take photos, or listen to music. The case includes circular smart lighting to accentuate the design, and includes a Qi-based connector for wireless charging. The LG QCircle SDK will let developers customize their own apps and make them directly accessible from the QuickCircle window via LG's QCircle user interface. The SDK is free for developers to download. The LG G3 will be available in the U.S. later this summer.
LG is back with another bendable phone. It's best to think of the G Flex 2 as a curved LG G3 - especially since it carries over most of the specs.
The LG G3 is a solid device for Sprint customers to consider, and is among a growing number to offer Wi-Fi calling. Android smartphone enthusiasts would do well to read Phone Scoop's full report, which points out the phone's strengths and weaknesses.
The LG G3 is one of the company's finest efforts and a strong competitor against the likes of Samsung's Galaxy S5 and HTC's One (M8). LG's flagship Android phone makes significant strides in design, quality, and features.
The G3 from LG shows plenty of promise, though it is far more complicated than the "simple is the new smart" message LG used to describe it. Here is our initial hands-on report.
