Whether it’s getting directions, sharing photos with friends, or even slicing virtual fruit, each Android release makes something new possible.
Right from the start, Android is an open OS that can run almost any app or widget so you can do what you want to do. Android is the operating system that influences over 1 billion smartphones and tablets. Since these devices make our lives so sweet and healthy, each Android version is named after a dessert: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean. The version history of the Android mobile operating system Started with the release of the Android beta in November 2007. The first commercial version, Android 1.0, was released in September 2008. Android is under on-going development by Google and the Open Handset Alliance (OHA), and has seen a number of updates to its base operating system since its initial release.
Here comes the latest version of android 4.4 ‘Kitkat’ with Google nexus. As per Android App Development Company and android app developers, the major disadvantage of android is the OS never maintains an unchanging presentation within the entire product line of android OS versions that are running effectively across the devices. Fragmentation has evolved as a necessary evil for android but now with the launch of KitKat, Google is trying its level best to minimize the irregularities while trying to provide a more stable development environment for android app developers. In line to this, Google has updated the nexus 4 tablet and is rolling out its OS on other versions too.
Google has not only rolled out the latest update of Android 4.4 Kitkat OS to Nexus 5, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2013) models, but the new 4.4.1 version can also be installed on Google Nexus 10 manually by following some simple steps.
Given below is some of the mind blowing features of Android 4.4 KitKat.
Enhanced Visuals: This latest version of Android allows you to enjoy your apps and games with the entire display allotted to it. It means no battery icons and no notification bars. Imagine the fun of playing games or using apps on full screen.
Embedded Chrome: There are several apps that use an embedded browser to display their content
Performance: One of the best things about this version is that it will run smoothly on mobiles with as low as 512 MB RAM. KitKat is equipped with hardware sensor batching which makes sensors to consume low power. It has been done by making the coprocessor work with the hardware to obtain and forward sensor events in batches, instead of individual delivery on every detection instance. Thus the processor stays in low power state as long as the batches are not delivered.
Revamped user interface: The new version offers an intuitive user interface with impressive transition effects added when you open the app launcher.
