Getting to know Android

Nov 9, 2010 | Information Technology

Google integration is outstanding, with gmail working great, and full calendar and contacts integration. Social networking apps are great, and the camera is okay (love the barcode scanner app).The OS is very responsive, on every app I’ve tried. The app market itself is a little hit-and-miss though. It looks to me as if the android apps are a fair way behind apple apps at this time. I don’t know if thats because of OS limitations or because android development isn’t as lucrative. I’m looking forward to doing some development myself.
