When the first tablets with Android 2.2 began to spread through the market the Apple people could barely hide a smile on their face.
After all, its biggest rivals, especially the Samsung Galaxy, came with an operating system that originally had been designed to run on smartphones.
That was late in 2010.
After that, Google worked hard and learned from the bugs of Andoid 3.0, the company’s first operating system made especially for tablets.
Android 4.2, codenamed Jelly Bean, can finally be considered a mature system.With it, anyone can show off without being afraid of being bullied by an Apple user.
There’s still a lot left, but Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is already a much better and stable operating system
Follow the main news of the new Jelly Bean:
Always when talking about spywares or adware some Apple user raises his hand to talk about iOS security.
Google realized, of course, that it should invest more in this area.Android 4.2 comes with a system similar to traditional anti-virus packages for PCs.
The analysis is now done in real time and whenever a new application is downloaded it scans to find possible malicious or potentially harmful codes.
It is good to say that Google Play apps already receive a security review.
Separate user accounts
The first big news of version 4.2 is the possibility of creating multiple separate user accounts.
Once the individual configuration is done, just touch the user login icon, which will have its own home screen, wallpaper, applications and other personal choices.
All personal files are inaccessible to other users registered on the tablet.
Home screen widgets
Nothing more annoying than having to unlock the screen with your password just to be able to access banal things like the calendar, clock or emails (in this case Gmail).
Because your problems are over.All this is now on the main screen, opening.And you can also download other useful widgets if they are offered by other developers.
If you switch from the iPhone to an iPad feel no difference, other than the size of the screen.
But with Android this does not happen.Android for smartphones is not the same as Android for tablets.
Google has been trying to fix this, unifying, by and large, all functions.
An example is the quick menus of version 4.2.Notifications are now at the top and the list of applications in the footer.Same as Android for smarths.
Even so, most manufacturers insist on “customizing” Android, putting “unique” (and often useless) functions.
One of the most common tasks that has become routine among users of touchscreen devices is to check the battery, tinker on brightness, volume, wireless and other fine settings
Google resolve to extend its importance by leaving it more “on hand.”Now, just slide one finger from the top to the center of the screen on the right side of the tablet.(If you use the left half of the screen, the notifications panel will appear.
New typing feature
Many manufacturers already offered the typing feature without the need to take your finger off the screen, just by dragging your finger across the letters.
It is the feature that many know and use called Swype .Android 4.2 already comes with a similar feature that was dubbed “gesture typing.”
Many can not adapt to the use of this feature, so Google also offers the option to disable it.
I particularly find it interesting for some typing tasks.At first it is a bit complicated but once you learn it can be a “hand in the wheel”.
Still can not say that Android is already an operating system fully ready to face the iOS that comes on iPads.
It took a huge leap from the troublesome Android 3.0 – Honeycomb, but there is still a lot to be done.
What you can say yes is that Google has been doing a good job of developing Android.To face, without fear, other systems, such as Windows 8 for tablets, for example (which, by the way, has not yet taken off).
