Google unveiled a flurry of innovations for developers at its I/O conference. The Google Play Developer Console was updated to offer optimization tips and put referral tracking and usage metrics on one dashboard, among other improvements. A Google Maps update builds "a unique map for every place and every click," product management director Bernhard Seefeld says. Google Play for Education creates a repository of educator-represented apps for teachers. And the company is also offering Android developers more application programming interfaces, including one called Geofencing that allows for the creation of triggered geographic fences.
