  3. 3. Android is a Linux-based, open-source operating system designed for use on cell phones, e-readers, tablet PCs, and other mobile devices. For users of smart phones, Android provides easy access to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube and smooth integration with Google products like Gmail, Google Maps, and Google Calendar. While it is owned by Google, it should not be confused with Google’s Chrome OS, a web-resident, thin-client operating system designed primarily for netbooks and tablets rather than for mobile devices. Android has been adopted by a number of manufacturers, including Motorola, Samsung, HTC, and Sony Ericsson. The expanding assortment of applications available on this platform suggests that Android- based phones will continue to be strong competitors in the smart-phone market.
  4. 4. iOS (previously iPhone OS) is a mobile operating system developed and distributed by Apple Inc. Originally unveiled in 2007 for the iPhone, it has been extended to support other Apple devices such as the iPod Touch (September 2007), iPad (January 2010), iPad mini (November 2012) and second-generation Apple TV (September 2010).The operating system was unveiled with the iPhone at the Macworld Conference & Expo, January 9, 2007, and released in June of that year. Apple's iPhone operating system or iOS has come a long way since it was first created and released with the original iPhone. iOS is perhaps one of the most important pieces of software for Apple as of now. With WWDC 2013 coming up and iOS 7 to be announced, there are many rumors flying around as to what could be in this seemingly magical update.
  5. 5. As a mobile platform, Android has grown in popularity among hardware manufacturers and the general public alike in recent years. Its open market model allows registered software developers to create applications for Android mobile devices in Java and list them in Android Market without undergoing review and waiting for approval. Users can download from a growing store of smart-phone applications at Google Market, many of which connect with existing Google services. They can also download compatible Android apps from other locations. Flexible and adaptable, Android’s facility in supporting screen-based interfaces has also made it the OS of choice for many industrial and consumer electronics, including navigation devices, set-top boxes, kiosks, self checkout stands, medical equipment, netbooks, tablets, and e-readers.
  6. 6. iOS, formerly known as iPhone OS (and just Mac OS X), is the operating system for the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, iPad mini and Apple TV. iOS has four abstraction layers: the Core OS layer, the Core Services layer, the Media layer, and the Cocoa Touch layer. The OS takes ~350MB of the device's total memory storage, this means that users will not get their full storage space. It's easier than ever to share photos, update status or other postings on Facebook. The user just needs to sign in only once and it's then possible to off and share! Android provides a broad spectrum of applications and services to its user. Users can fully customize their mobile phones to their interests. The first Mobile phone that has used Android was the HTC Dream, release on 22 October 2008.
  7. 7. Android may bring smart phone and tablet functionality to a much wider cross-section of students and faculty members. Like the iPhone, an Android device may be intriguing possibilities with regard to context awareness. Android phones can be set up to recognize when the phone operator is in a car, causing the device to respond by reading text messages aloud and accepting only voice input. Perhaps the most significant USP with iOS is its compatibility with the iTunes and App Store. Over 300,000 apps are live on the store, and more get updated constantly both by Apple and the various third-party developers. However, app customization is definitely something Apple may want to work on, given that iPhone and iPad apps are such a rage.
  8. 8. You can download the Android SDK from: Once downloaded, unzip it to the location on your hard drive where you want to leave it, then follow the instructions about adding the location to your PATH After that, you should be able to run the Android SDK Manager by typing android into a terminal.
  9. 9. The iOS SDK will only run on Mac OS X 10.5 or later. You will also need an Apple Developer Account which you can get for free. Once you have the iOS SDK installed, you can launch the iPhone Simulator from the following folder: /Developer/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/Applications/iPhone It would suggest dragging this to your dock for easy access during the class.
  10. 10. The Android OS may accelerate the diffusion of smart phones by providing a free operating system that can draw from more than 100,000 applications, including those that support teaching and learning. Access to the Android software development kit (SDK) suggests that the number of applications will continue to swell as professional developers provide new offerings.
  11. 11. It is this spreading of the IOS onto iPod and iPad that gives it the lead in the marketplace. Whilst there might be more Android phones than iPhones, when you include iPad and iPod Touch users, the balance does swing in the favor of the IOS.
  12. 12. Android • Android’s browser is faster. Not just a little faster, but a whopping 52% faster. • Android’s Chrome beat iPhone’s Safari by loading 84% of the websites faster, meaning Safari won the race only 16% of the time. • On mobile sites Android was only 3% faster, with a median load time of 2.085 seconds. • There are almost 8,00,0000 apps in Google pay for the Android. iOS • iPhone is slower on 84% of sites. • Both Apple and Google tout great performance improvements in JavaScript benchmarks and high complexity apps. • iPhone’s median load time of 3.254 seconds. • Apple has the most apps about 8, 40,000 in its app store.
  13. 13. Key factors that makes this study unique Past comparisons usually focused on custom created benchmarks, such as the Sun Spider JavaScript benchmark. While useful these benchmark are very different than real world sites, and don’t reflect the actual user experience. This study measured the load time of 1000 real Websites, mimicking the experience users would get when browsing on their smartphones.
  14. 14. A report discharged today entitled "Entering the Brave New World of Mobile Apps" underlines both the interest Windows designers are confronting for mobile software and additionally the actuality that the two stages generally popular by their clients are Google Android and Apple iOS. Something which directly considered shocking in the research was Android is the most asked for platform to have apps for. There's more cash which gets used in Apple's App Store; however a ton of getting onto the Android stage is much simpler, there is no upfront expense, it’s truly a couple of taps and you're an Android designer and off you go. Eighty-five percent said native applications are best, and 74 percent discovered HTML5 and JavaScript-based development testing because of issues like entering gadget characteristics and insufficient language abilities. Ninety-five percent see worth in like manner source code for desktop and mobile apps. Embarcadero is positioning its RAD Studio XE 5 tooling stage, as an answer in this vein, supporting numerous mobile platforms incorporating Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac OS.
  15. 15. Gartner gauges that smartphones caught 44% of all mobile phones bargains in the December 2012 quarter with Android smartphones taking 31% of all mobile shipments and iOS in second spot at 9%. Google's app store has become colossally since it was restored from the Android Market to Google Play. Engineers are bit by bit starting new applications on Android with a quick expand in the amount of value applications. Apple is known for its planet class equipment and programming items, and we have become acclimated to its convention of starting creative items every year. However the most recent start of new iPad and iOS 5.1, it has redirected from its custom on conveying high -end equipment and an improved HTML5 perusing programming. Contrasted with iPad 2, the moderate JavaScript execution in the new iPad and evacuation of HTML5 characteristics from iOS 5.1 has helped a generally disillusionment for the HTML5 designers.
  16. 16. The iOS vs Android verbal confrontation is polarized and frequently awful tempered, with both sides equipped to pick and pick facts that suit their contentions. Android is positively far in front of iOS for offers of smartphones: Gartner gauges that their particular pieces of the overall industry for bargains to end clients (i.e genuine individuals, not just shipments) were 74.4% and 18.2% in the first quarter of 2013, while Google says its actuating 1.5m new Android apparatuses each day. Yet Apple and its supporters have a tendency to indicate use and content bargains to demonstrate iOS predominance: impart of mobile web perusing being one sample of the previous, and payouts to engineers ($9bn and numbering) for the last. That's a fair conclusion: the competition between Android and iOS is spurring rapid, intense innovation around smartphone (and tablet) features and interfaces.
