Jumping Ship: 5 iPhone features I would consider leaving Android for


Have you ever questioned your choice in smartphone? What about your choice in smartphone platform?

You are reading Android Authority, and we do love Android phones, but once in a while I (can’t speak for anyone else) find myself questioning – would I, or could I, ever jump ship and become an iPhone user? The answer is obviously yes, I could if I wanted to, but what would drive me to do so?

The primary argument of Android vs iPhone used to always come down to the snappiness of the UI, the instant response when swiping between home screens and opening app, and the “clean” interaction with the devices. And it was true; Android phones, with their customized “skins,” bloated interfaces, and unpolished designs, garnered a bit of a bad reputation and a deficit in that argument – primarily with the everyday user. However, Android (and even hardware manufacturers) has come a long way in years past. With the likes of the Google Pixel and the Galaxy S8, lag or stutter is pretty much a thing of the past, and a vanilla Android experience is pretty much as clean as anyone could ask for.

So now, thinking Android vs iPhone, it comes down to specific features between the two that would make one consider trading sides. For me, though I’m an avid Android user, and have been for years, I’m surrounded in personal and professional life by iPhone users. I sometimes find myself coveting the features that they have, and wishing that the interaction between our phones could be a bit more seamless. To be more specific, here are 5 features that I would/have considered leaving Android for.


iPhone_iMessage

#1: iMessage

At the top of the list, taking the cake as the primary reason I’d consider switching to iPhone, is iMessage.

iMessage has proven itself to be one the largest selling points of the iPhone. Apple obviously knows that it has a winner here, and they’ve put significant time and resources into making sure it stays a top-dog in the messaging app space. When iOS 10 was released last year, iMessage stole the spotlight, with more new features announced than any other aspect of the device. Other apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Allo and more are always nipping at its heels, but iMessage remains leaps and bounds ahead of its closest competitors.

Outside of the messaging experience itself, iMessage has a ton of functionality to improve your everyday usage.

The app itself is feature-rich. It has a ton to offer its users in the way of messaging, trying to overcome that stigma of communication stripped of any inflection or tone by using animations inside the app such as slam and whisper. Other embellishments inside the app, including full-screen takeovers of balloons, fireworks, or hearts elevate the texting experience from one iOS user to another. There are also some very utilitarian features built right in, like invisible ink which prevents nosy screen-peekers from reading a message that was sent to you, or looking at a photo in your message thread, before you’ve had the chance to do so yourself. Text conversations can contain very sensitive information as we know!

Outside of the messaging experience itself, iMessage has a ton of functionality to improve your everyday usage. With apps designed to be used directly within iMessage, you can do much more without switching around to other apps, especially while you’re in conversation with a group of friends. For instance, if you need to pay a co-worker pack for picking up your lunch bill, you can transfer the money in iMessage. If you’re trying to decide where to go for your next lunch, you can use OpenTable’s iMessage app to propose a few spots for your friends in the conversation to vote on, and then handle reservation all at once. There are ample amount of iMessage apps available to help you get stuff done.

Being surrounded by so many people who use iMessage as their primary messaging app makes it tempting to switch to iPhone, just so I too can partake in some of these features that bring text conversations to another level. On Android, your messaging options are far from limited. Each manufacturer has their own stock messaging app, some carriers have messaging apps, and there are more third-party options than I care to count. However, none of them quite stack up when it comes to the value that iMessage can provide. Google Allo was a good effort, but the lack of SMS functionality and a limited install-base brought that train to a halt early on.

As an Android user, all we can hope is that there can soon be some sort of synergy between carriers and manufacturers by way of RCS to get something close to what iMessage has to offer.


iPhone_Airdrop

#2. AirDrop

Let’s admit it. Transferring files, photos, and videos, has never been very straightforward or easy for Android users. Sure, we all have our workarounds to get the job done, but there isn’t one simplified method out there that everyone fully understands. To be fair, transferring files from a smart phone to a computer isn’t very easy on any device, even an iPhone. However, iPhone users have a leg up when it comes to wireless transfer with AirDrop.

If you aren’t familiar with AirDrop, it basically allows you to seamlessly transfer files from one Apple device to another via Bluetooth. So if you need to transfer a large amount of photos from your iPhone to your MacBook, or to another iPhone user, it’s incredibly easy. In the normal share menu when selecting files, an AirDrop icon will appear when the option is available.

Transferring files, photos, and videos, has never been very straightforward or easy for Android users.

Though this feature seems sort of minor, I can’t count the number of times this could have come in handy for me. Don’t be mistaken, though. I wouldn’t trade Android’s file management for iPhone’s any day of the week. Whenever I use an iOS device, I painfully resent not being able to simply download a file without having an app for it to live within. But, when I’ve needed to send something to a coworker or to my wife, having AirDrop would have made life much simpler.

When it comes to Android, you have plenty of options to get the file to where it needs to go, it just isn’t quite as seamless of an experience. If you’re an Android user who also uses a Mac, things get even trickier. Google’s official file transfer app for that subset of users is Android File Transfer. When the app works, it works. But, when the app doesn’t work, which is greater than 50% of the time, well, it doesn’t work. Unfortunately, the app hasn’t been updated since late 2013, so needless to say, it needs some love. Fortunately, there are other alternatives such as AirDroid, Pushbullet, or the standards – Google Drive or Dropbox. There’s much to be said, however, about having a file transfer system that works, built in.

iPhone_Handoff

#3: Handoff

A couple of years back, when Apple introduced iOS 8, as well as OS X Yosemite, a new feature called Handoff, made its way onto the scene. We live in a multi-screen world. At any given moment, I could be watching TV, using my laptop to buy something from Amazon, and periodically scrolling through Facebook with my phone. That’s an everyday occurrence for many people. Taking the same concept into the working world, most of us won’t find it unusual that you could be using your phone or iPad in a meeting, and then transition back to your laptop when you get back to your desk.

The idea behind Apple’s Handoff feature is that you can start a task on one device, and finish it on another. When you’re stuck in that meeting, and start typing an email on your phone, you can quickly transition to your laptop to finish the email, attach a document and hit send. The great part about it is that it works both ways. No matter if you start from MacBook and move to iPhone, or if you start from iPhone and move to MacBook.

Handoff works with the majority of Apple’s proprietary apps, including Mail, Safari, Calendar, Keynote, etc. but it also works with a ton of third-party apps as well. For me, this would come in most hand with Chrome. If I’m using Chrome to research something with my MacBook, I could continue that research on the go by picking up my iPhone and resuming with Handoff.

I’m trying to find an Android equivalent for this feature, but to my knowledge, there is nothing available outside of Chrome itself being able to sync tabs when you are logged in. If you know of anything in the Android world that can do something similar, let us know in the comments below!


#4: Apple Pay

While mobile payment options continue to grow in popularity on both the Android and iOS platforms, it’s no surprise that Apple Pay reigns supreme in terms of its wide acceptance with both banks and retailers. In fact, according to the head of Apple Pay, Jennifer Bailey, Apple Pay is now accepted at more than 4 million locations in the U.S. alone.

Mobile payment is something that more and more people are getting used to. As more retailers accept this as a form of payment, and as people get more comfortable reaching for their phone instead of their wallet, social acceptance is continuing to grow. Owning an Android phone, which happens to also be a Samsung phone, I use Android Pay (not Samsung Pay) as often as I can. However, outside of its ever-reaching acceptance, there are a couple of benefits to using Apple Pay instead.

Apple Pay reigns supreme in terms of its wide acceptance with both banks and retailers.

For starters, since Apple Pay only has to worry about its functionality on Apple devices, there’s much better integration with the iPhone’s hardware – Touch ID specifically. So, unlike with many Android devices, you don’t need to draw an unlock pattern or type in your PIN to unlock your phone before you pay. Simply hold your finger on the Touch ID sensor and place your phone near the NFC terminal.

Outside of the ease of payment in the store, Apple Pay can also be used online to make purchases. This is something that can be accomplished with the Android Pay app as well, but again, it comes down to Apple Pay’s immense selection of apps and online destinations that are supported.

And, of course, the other benefit of using Apple Pay, especially if you are a Mac user, is that you can use the same account across all of your devices. If you have the new MacBook, you can authorize purchases via the Touch ID sensor with the Touch Bar, and of course, you can use the Touch ID sensor on the iPad as well.

If you want to learn more about the differences in Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay, check out this post.


#5: Timely & Consistent Updates

Last, but not least, a feature for which I would consider leaving Android would be the timely and consistent updates. There’s no hiding the fact that this has been a pain point among Android users for a long time. It’s easy for people to complain about it taking nearly a year in some cases to get the latest Android OS, but there’s actually a lot that goes into that. If you think about the number of different Android devices that need to add support for the new OS, paired with the number of carriers that need to do the same, it’s easy to see why it might take some time. However, that doesn’t make up for the frustration that comes from being teased with the latest features but can’t get them until months have passed.

On the contrary, with iPhones, the software updates are nearly instant. When Tim Cook or Craig Federighi gets on stage and talks about the latest iOS, you’re almost guaranteed to have it within the next few days. Since Apple has so much more control of their hardware, pushing out updates is much easier and timely than on the Android side of things.

There’s not much else to say here other than, when will I get Android O?!


Wrap Up

Hopefully, after reading this post (or just reading the headline), you aren’t hunting for my address while holding a burning pitchfork. Look, I love Android, and I love Android phones. As much as I can sometimes fantasize (maybe too strong of a word) about owning an iPhone, and what that might mean for my day to day life, it would be very tough for me to actually jump ship. For nearly every feature I’ve talked about here, there is an Android counterpart in some form or fashion. Sure, the experience may not always be as buttoned up or polished, but the Android experience also doesn’t get boring.

Back when I did own an iPhone (years ago now), I found myself yearning for the ability to make even the slightest bit of customization, such as having my app folders at the bottom of the screen instead of the top. Apple is taking baby steps in loosening their death grip on the user experience, but they’ve still got a long way to go if they want to reach a specific audience who doesn’t want to be just another iPhone user. But until that day comes, Android reigns supreme for me, even if I’m willing to admit there’s a few features from the other camp that I sometimes covet.

Some even let you pay for your parking through the app. The range of features is vast, but also varies wildly between apps. Some of them are pretty decent while others could use some work. Still, it’s worth a look at least.

10 best new Android apps from May 2017!


App developers are pushing the envelope on a daily basis trying to improve and enhance our smartphone and tablet experiences. In fact, so many Android apps come out every day that it’s difficult to keep track of them all. It’s difficult to usurp the best of the best but if you’re getting bored with what you’ve got and want to try something new, check out the best new Android apps from the last month! You can watch the videos from passed months by clicking here!


Amazon FreeTime

Price: Free / $ 6.99-$ 9.99 per month
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Amazon FreeTime is a new kids app. It boasts a collection of video content from big kids companies like PBS, Nickelodeon, Disney, and others. There is also a variety of books, games, and other content for kids. You can use the app’s dashboard to list the age of your kid. The content then changes based on the child’s age. Amazon made the pricing a little complicated. However, this is one of the few services that Amazon offers to people without an Amazon Prime subscription. Don’t get us wrong, though, it’s cheaper if you do have one already.

AMOLED mnml Wallpapers

Price: Free / $ 1.49 – $ 1.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
AMOLED mnml Wallpapers is an app that describes itself. It’s a wallpapers app with a host of minimal wallpapers. Most of the wallpapers feature lots of black. That helps with battery life a little bit when used on AMOLED screens. The base app has a ton of fun, minimal wallpapers. There are also donate versions that you have to buy if you want wallpapers designed for the S8/S8+ or super high resolution. The free app should work in most cases, though. You can also get the app even if you don’t have an AMOLED screen if you just enjoy the style.

Astro

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Astro is a new email client that also has a chat bot. The chatbot will notify you about things, ask you if you want to unsubscribe from email lists, and more. On top of that, the app boasts a snooze mode, quick inbox organization, personal reminders, and more. It’s dealing with a few early issues. However, when it works, it works rather well. To be honest, this one still needs some work. Thus, it’s best to file it away under apps to keep an eye on.

AutoSet

Price: $ 1.49
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
AutoSet is a nifty automation app. It works by automatically turning functions on your phone on or off when certain apps are opening. For instance, you can have the phone turn WiFi on when you open Netflix. It works well most of the time. However, some things like GPS and mobile data might require ADB commands on your PC to make it work right. It’s definitely a power user app more than anything. It’s costs $ 1.49 and it has no in-app purchases.

AutoSet

Panna Recipes

Price: Free / $ 39.99 per year
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Panna Recipes wants to be the Netflix of cooking apps. It features over 400 video recipes made by over 45 talented chefs. You can search based on your dietary interests, annotate written recipes with your own ideas, and add items to the shopping list that’s built-in. You can try it free for 30 days, but it does require a subscription after that. It’s not ideal, but at least you can try it before deciding if paying for it is right for you.
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY


Socratic

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Socratic is an educational app. More specifically, it’s an app that teaches you math. It works by using your camera to capture an equation. The app then pops up several pages of information on how to solve the problem. Generally, the first page walks you through solving the problem while subsequent pages show you information and math rules you’ll need to solve it. It’s a great app for students. Especially the ones who have problems with math. It’s a totally free app, at least for right now.
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Socratic

SpotAngels

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
SpotAngels is an app that remembers where you parked. It also gives you information on the parking rules in the area. The central premise of the app is to help people avoid making mistakes that result in potentially expensive traffic tickets. It supports over 20 cities, but it’s still useful even if you don’t live in one of them. The app’s secondary premise is to remember where you parked your car. That works virtually everywhere. You can also help crowd source additional information by adding pictures and rules that the app might not have.
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
SpotAngels

Stash for Reddit

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Stash for Reddit is a newer Reddit app in the Play Store. The idea is to download a variety of posts from Reddit in the background so that they can be read offline later. The current iteration downloads 100 posts and that includes images, GIFs, and videos. Future releases will include account support, subreddit selection for download, a time schedule, bandwidth limit options, and more. It’s not all that great just yet. However, you should definitely file this one under app to keep an eye on.

Stash for Reddit

Taskzy

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Taskzy is like a light version of IFTTT. It allows you to program automatic actions based on the things happening on your device. It gives you a decent, if small selection of commands to give. For instance, you can have it open a specific music app when you plug in headphones. You can then have it open a different music app if you plug in headphones while you’re in the car. It’s not the most powerful automation app ever made. However, it’s far more simple than most of the other options. It’s also totally free.
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Taskzy

WeDo

Price: Free
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
WeDo is a task management app that focuses a little more on groups. You create groups in the app, invite people to those groups, and then people create tasks that everyone can see. It’s great for small businesses, families, and the like. You can also use it alone if you want to. It features reminders, subtasks, and you can create tasks that repeat (like taking out the garbage every week). It’s still in beta in the Play Store. Those that try it should be prepared to find bugs. Otherwise, it’s free and it works pretty well.

Nova Launcher beta adds Android O-like notification dots and rounded search bar


Nova Launcher, one of the most popular launchers on Android, introduced dynamic notifications earlier this month. This provides a quick look at missed notifications direct from the app icons. In the latest beta update, Nova Launcher has now added an option for notifications badges similar to those offered in Android O.

The feature, known on Nova simply as Dots, was announced yesterday on the Nova Launcher beta Google+ community page. The functionality will allow you to see the number of notifications you have waiting in a particular app in the same format as can be found in the latest stock Android preview build.

Update: Nova Launcher gets dynamic notification badges with stable update

3 weeks ago

However, unlike the Android O version, it’s not yet possible to tap-and-hold the app icon to open it up for a deeper look at what’s happening. On the Google+ community page, developer Cliff Wade said that feature hadn’t been “yet”, which suggests that it could be on its way in the future. Right now, this is just another way to visualize your notifications outside of the status bar.

Meanwhile, the latest Nova update also includes a new round search bar style (instead of the more traditional square one) and other performance improvements.

You can sign up to become a Nova Launcher beta tester here to check out the latest improvements or download the standard version at the link below.

Is your Android phone rooted? [Poll of the Week]


Last week’s poll summary: Out of over 14,300 total votes, 45% of our readers said they need at least 64 GB of on-board storage in their smartphones. 29.4% said they’d be okay with just 32 GB, and 15.7% said they need a massive 128 GB of local storage in their phones. Only 5.5% of our readers said they can get by with 16 GB, and 2.6% said they’d be okay with only 8 GB of storage space.

Rooting may not be as popular in the Android world as it once was, but there are still a number of great reasons to go down this path. With a rooted Android phone, you can get rid of carrier bloatware, create backups, overclock or underclock your device, and much more. There are also device-specific reasons for rooting your Android device, such as remapping your Galaxy S8’s Bixby button to open Google Assistant without the need for a separate app.

Benefits of rooting your Android phone or tablet

March 7, 2017

But as the Android operating system progresses over time, many would argue there’s much less reason to root. Google and other OEMs have been doing a good job at bringing what used to be root-only features to Android. For instance, many people used to root their devices to get more customization options out of the phone’s software, but now manufacturers are including built-in theming engines in with their Android skins. Plus, rooting your Android device opens up a number of compatibility issues, especially when it comes to mobile payment and banking apps.

So, is your Android phone rooted? Why or why not? Be sure to cast your vote in the poll attached below, and let us know your thoughts on rooting in the comment section. We look forward to hearing what you have to say!

A rumored Motorola tablet could have a feature long awaited by many Android users


Android tablets have not been the best when it comes to actually getting work done. Even with the multiple window support for apps in Android 7.0 Nougat, its hard to switch between them for work. It’s much easier if you have a Windows laptop or tablet. Now, there’s word that an upcoming tablet from Motorola might have a feature that could make working with multiple apps easier.

Best Android tablets

March 18, 2017

The report comes from Android Police, who received a slide that shows off this feature from an unnamed but trusted source. The slide shows that this tablet will have a productivity mode, which will allow for Android apps to be pinned on the navigation bar. The slide indicates that users should be able to switch between those apps by tapping on their icons in the nav bar. In theory, this should allow people to switch from a word processing app to a note taking app quickly without having to go to the normal Android home screen.

Keep in mind that this description is just based on what’s shown in the slide. It’s possible there’s more to this “productivity mode” than is shown in this single leaked image. The article also doesn’t reveal anything else about this future Motorola tablet. We don’t know its hardware specs, its size or weight. We also don’t have a release date or price tag. All of this could affect how well this “productivity mode” will work in the real world.

By the way, this product, if it comes to market, will be the first such tablet from Motorola since the release of the Droid Xyboard in 2011, although Motorola’s parent company Lenovo has been selling a number of current Android and Windows tablets.

This new Motorola device could finally bring a work-capable Android tablet to market that may be able to rival the iPad Pro or Microsoft’s Surface products.

Assuming that this new mode will work the way we think it will (and admittedly that’s a big assumption) this new Motorola device could finally bring a work-capable Android tablet to market that may be able to rival the iPad Pro or Microsoft’s Surface products. Most Android tablets are designed to watch content, but a “productivity mode” could offer businesses, schools and other customers a way to actually get stuff done on a tablet. This is something that not even Google has been able to do with its own Nexus 9 and Pixel C tablets, so it will be very interesting to see if Motorola can offer its own solution.

In the meantime, what do you think about this leaked slide? Will this future Motorola tablet really offer a better multitasking experience? Let us know what you think in the comments!

Riven, the sequel to Myst, is now available to explore on Android


Riven, the heavily hyped sequel to Cyan Worlds’ breakthrough graphic adventure game Myst, is now out for Android. The adaptation, from Noodlecake Studios, has been remastered from its original 1997 release on the PC to work on touchscreen devices. Noodlecake previously released the Android version of realMyst, a revamped 3D version of the original Myst game, in January.

The game basically begins where Myst left off, as you explore a mysterious series of islands full of odd looking artifacts, while you also search for clues to unlock puzzles. The Android version includes features such as a “Bookmark” system so you can quickly save and restore your progress in Riven if you decide to take a break. You can also zoom in anywhere in the game to get more information and clues, and there are even “hot spot” hints that will help out if you get stuck.

Since the game is being released in the Google Play Store, you will also get access to Google Play achievements that can be unlocked, along with an integrated hint guide. Noodlecake has priced the Android version of Riven at just $ 3.99 in the Google Play Store, with no other in-game purchases or ads, and that’s an excellent value for one of the best point-and-click adventure games ever made.
