At Google I/O annual developers conference
this year, many I/O attendees were spotted wearing a T-shirt stating Android
is a 'toxic hell stew'.
The latest Android platform distribution numbers
have revealed that in this month (July, 2014) KitKat
can officially be found running on 17.9% of active Android devices (up from 13.6% in June, 2014). Notably, Jelly Bean
still makes up about 56.5% of all Android users.
It is worth nothing that the numbers still have not been updated with the specific versions of KitKat rolling out around the world (4.4.2, 4.4.3, 4.4.4). The major satisfaction for die-hard Android fans is to have the absolutely latest version of Android (currently Android 4.4.4) in their phones.
Among other Android versions, Gingerbread
is loaded on 13.5% of devices and Ice Cream Sandwich
is loaded on 11.4% of devices, with Froyo
drifting off into obscurity.
