Useful reminder from Anuj Ahooja at Tech Thirst of just how much Apple's iOS has borrowed from Google's Android, including the implementations of multitasking, notifications, over-the-air syncing and social networking integration.
Although I agree that the initial launch version of Android was very reflective of Apple’s mobile OS, since then Android has been ahead in numerous ways. Android continues to blaze past iOS and competition without any hesitation. It brings more and more innovative features to the table than most people can even keep up with. Being both a user and developer, it’s exciting to see how far both the framework and user-end of the platform have come. But ever since the first iteration of Android, iOS seems more and more…familiar.
