We generally consider those to be better devices for typing than tablets or smartphones, but how much of this stems from our reliance on software that isn't designed to truly adapt to mobile screens and interfaces?

Today, Google launched a couple new features for developers that will give them a lot more flexibility in storing data associated with apps.
