The multimedia platform that Google’s Android introduced in June 2012 resulted in the demise of Adobe Flash player on many portable devices. Google made a massive media splash when it was first introduced. Jelly Bean, the Google’s Android mobile operating system focus on three major areas. Android 4.1 and 4.3.1 concentrate on providing a smoother and more responsive operating system. Later releases provide further optimizations, multi-user support, quick setting and many other functions.
Jelly Bean focus on UI speed that was introduced with the release of Android 4.0 and responsiveness. They come with a redesigned notification API, allow notifications to be expanded to widget-like functionality, ability to pose questions and have voice replies, a camera app that allow for review of shots and deletion, and use of Google Now for data and location search.
Even with notifications, capability for voice search, and speed, critics are still not convinced especially with the voice search and the number of fewer camera modes available. Many believe the voice search rivals Apple’s Siri. But everyone agree that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean brings voice capability, notifications and sharing capability. It is time for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich users to hopscotch to Jelly Bean.
