I’m not really going to say that Android is better than iOS. Why I like it better: the file system, the widgets, the personalization, a wider option in phones, custom ROMs, live wallpapers, applications can work together or be shared more easily, and better multitasking with captures of screen. There are more but here are the main ones for me.
- Defects and intentions
Attempts to share and import from any application that can provide the correct data.
Default values: I have my own set of applications that I want to use for various tasks and I do not have to manually enter the data to perform actions (such as opening a URL).
This makes the use of the operating system so pleasant, it is an intelligent and intelligent system that feels good. It feels so good that it makes the use of iOS look awkward, for me.
- Applications can be as good as stock applications. In iOS, Apple’s embedded applications have a privileged position in the system, they have more capabilities than third-party applications that they can not take advantage of and are not given the option to exchange those value applications.
- Notifications: easily interchangeable one by one or a touch to discard everything. Expandable notifications allow more information to be displayed on the screen and space is saved. Some are even processable. They are smarter, more intuitive and more useful. And compared to IOS, it is also less complicated to administer (specifically eliminate them). I feel that iOS is limited to working only with applications, sure there is an application for everything, but you really have to go inside to access the information. Something great about Android could be as big as the notification system, which is far ahead of anything else
- Widgets can make you check the information at a glance without opening the application and shortcuts to the actions within the application. I use the Android Pro widgets to get a uniform look for my calendar, calendar, Twitter and Facebook widgets. Example: I can see the weather forecast for the whole week on my home screen, I can see my list of tasks and discard them with a tap on the screen, I can see my next 3 events and modify them if necessary. I can open several tasks in Evernote immediately. A quick look at my Agenda from the widget keeps me on track throughout the day.
- Multitasking: applications do not run in the background all the time. A properly written application can only run in the background when you need it, it can make it run in the background at scheduled times, and it can be triggered in the background. Of course, not all developers do it correctly, but I do not have to run those applications, I have the option of having applications that have more capacity and multitasking is part of that.
Most of my friends have Android phones and, often, they come to me to configure them for them. I ask them what they use the most, I get their answer, and in a few minutes, I have their phone configured to put at the forefront what they use the most. When you show your phone, it never looks the same as the others. That uniqueness makes many people enjoy their phone even more.
