Why Ice Cream Sandwich is Different?
Because it’s an open source OS, Android is being used by a number of smartphone-manufacturing companies. Although its design and compatibility is satisfactory, Google has taken it a step further by introducing Android 4.0, known as ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’. Let us find out how is it different from its previous versions.
Google has retained its Back and Home buttons, and has another button that displays the list of most-recently used applications. All its apps would have a menu button in it, which will enable users to quickly access the menu icons. There is also a Google search bar on top of its home screen.
Google has added ‘Favorites’ tab on the right corner of the screen. After adding your favorite apps, you can access them irrespective of the screen you are on.
You can uninstall Pre-installed apps
If you don’t use a certain app, Ice Cream Sandwich allows you to uninstall it, even though it was installed by the manufacturer. This saves memory and unnecessary loading time.
New data meter
A new app added by Google shows the figures of wireless data that you have used. Moreover, it also shows which app used how much data. This helps you keep a tab on the usage of your wireless internet.
