Take that in your pipe and smoke it, Apple! Google's Ice Cream Sandwich OS won the Gold Prize for best the platform experience at Parsons' 2012 User Experience Awards! Since Android came out it has obviously been the best mobile OS for utility and functionality, always showcasing more features and more useful features than it's competitors, like iOS. However, the one thing that Apple always did well with their OS was to refine the aesthetics and the design of the UI. Google's Android OS struggled to match this, arguably all the way up until about Gingerbread before it started to excel.
Google took things to a whole new level with Ice Cream Sandwich, though, and the results of this contest speak for themselves. Google's new focus on improving the design and user-friendliness of Android has really paid off, and at least for now, and in this particular contest, Android has finally bested the fruity alternative. It will be exciting to see what new improvements they make with Android 5.0! Congratulations Android!

The drug companies have known about this for a long time. I wouldn't think os companies are much different.
Whilst ICS is quite feature rich, I don't believe it's amounting to a great user experience,
I have a Samsung phone running ICS.
CoPilot hasn't worked for a large amount of people since ICS came out (me included). I've got a few other apps which consistently don't work either. Now whilst this isn't google's fault, i'm sure the fragmentation is causing the developers massive headaches trying to get things working on so many platforms.
Contrast to my iPad and touch, and they just work. The UI may not be as "useful" (e.g. I love the Swiftkey keyboard I have on the phone), but it works with a minimum of fuss.. I'm too busy to be fighting my tech these days...!
Hmmm. Android had to submit to the contest. Did Apple even bother? There is no mention of them so who says this was even a contest? Question what you read folks.
By the way, Parsons is powered by Apple. I'd go with where people put their money, not their awards.
Let's keep this thread on topic, please.
This is for your top three iOS wants and desires. Any further off-topic posts will be summarily deleted.
Thanks for your understanding.

It's highly unlikely that you'll ever see an SD card slot on an iPad.Your comment is more hardware related than iOS related.Originally Posted by bassman99
