A couple of weeks ago, the Google Developer Console announced the acquisition of Google’s first open source Android application, Boy and Boy.
The two-year-old application has been around for a few months, and it has the potential to be a powerful way to build apps on Android.
Boy and a handful of other open source applications are already available for Android devices, but this is the first time Google has made them available to developers.
While this announcement doesn’t really change anything for developers, it is a big step forward in allowing Android developers to share code with their peers.
It’s worth noting that Google’s recent Android Open Source Project is still an open source project, so developers are still able to work on it without fear of losing their work.
Boy has been in development since early 2013, and while it’s been relatively slow compared to the other projects, it’s still impressive to see this application in action.
This will likely be Google’s best open source app yet, so it’s exciting to see it become available to download on the Android Developer console.
