    Future of Android

    This is a big wonder in this world of smartphone that will Android still have chance to grow in future?

    Hopefully yes, but there are many issues with Android.

    There is still a significant amount of Android devices running Gingerbread, it was explained that part of the reason is the emerging markets where more cost-effective phones are
    popular. Many of those phones have lower specs and run earlier versions of the
    OS because it’s less of a strain on the device. To counteract that, Android
    need to be more efficient so it can run smoothly even on entry level phones.

    Also currently it is harder for developers to make apps for Android because there are so many variations of the Android software being used on so many different devices. Although every device has upgraded their software to the newest version, there software will still be
    different depending on who made the device. For example, Samsung and Motorola
    both make Android phones, but each company alters the software to work better
    for their specific type of phone. With all of these different variations, more
    complicated apps need to be altered to accommodate every single different
    variation in the software.

    In Google discusses in its annual fireside chat, team told that Android is still in its infancy, there’s so much more we can do but the hardware development hasn’t plateaued. They also added
    that we attempt to make Android very agile and also attempt to come up with themes to rally
    around when working on new releases, so we attempt to have some uniformity when
    an update comes out.

    In spite of several issues The Future Is Android. Figures from Gartner’s recent report, consumers move away from desktop PCs and Android will become the overwhelmingly dominant operating
    system, with iOS/MacOS and Windows competing for second place.

    Smartphone owners are expected to download about 56 billion applications in the year 2013, ABI Research report 2013. Out the 56 billion app downloads, approximately 32.5 billion, or 58% of
    them, will go to Android smartphones. Apple iPhone owners will download around 18.5 billion apps, covering about 33% of the 56 billion total. That means 58 out of every 100 apps downloaded in 2013 will Android apps, come from the Google Play Store.

    he a lot of user-facing accession is apparently Ribbons, a congenital quick launcher that works a lot like SwipePad. Bash in from the left, right, bottom, or any amount of added locations including the lockscreen and notification shade, and you’ll accessible a customizable vertical account of app/function shortcuts. Setting it all up is a bit of a pain, but it’s just as configurable as aggregate abroad in AOKP. The best allotment is that an app or adjustment can be apprenticed to a best swipe. For example: on my phone, I’ve set a abbreviate larboard bash to accessible my media app Ribbon, and a continued larboard bash to go beeline to the capital Settings menu. See the aloft screenshot for Ribbons active on my bottomless RAZR M with a pre-milestone build.
