Lip Smacking Evolution Of Android [Infographic]
We all know the iPhone has been around forever, but many forget that the Android has been around just as long. With the Android 1.1, we saw a few changes. With the ability to save attachments to messages, as well as something the iPhone later copied (the ability to hide the dial pad during calls), the Android 1.1 was only the beginning.
Soon after, the Android 1.5 Cupcake (launching on April 27th, 2009) showed some great new features, including support for third-party dial pads. What does that mean? Well, it is similar to the iPhone’s ability to support Emoticons. Featuring third party smiley faces at one point, one could install their own dial pad that was created by a developer on the outside!
The Android has been a force to recon with, and has held strong. With its most recent release of the Android 7.0 Nougat (circa July 16th, 2016), developers are able to utilize new technologies such as VR capability and a New Data Saver Mode (i.e. you close the app, and it saves what was left behind).
