  • Everything Wrong With Android, Explained

    Google's Android operating system is used by over 2 billion devices worldwide. But after a decade Android still has countless issues. Security, privacy, and product support are just a few of the reasons users turn to Apple's iOS instead. Business Insider's senior tech correspondent, Steve Kovach, highlights what Android still hasn't gotten right.

  • Android Pie Review: Everything You Need to Know

    Android 9 Pie is a massive, AI-infused software update, and it’s generally a pleasure to use. The handful of features made possible by machine learning are helpful additions, but there’s much more to Pie than that. Google has done a lot nipping and tucking to make Android itself easier to use, and some system-level changes give the platform room to grow in some important ways. Not everyone will love the changes Google made here -- power users in particular -- but overall, it’s a thoughtful, worthy update that will only get better when even more features arrive later this year.

    Lyrics:
    There's a place you may have heard of,
    It's a tale we like to tell!
    When folks whose code ain't up to code…
    They go to Android Hell!
    Now the devil is found deep underground,
    So, any faith will yell!
    Well Aperture happens to be ten miles down,
    Half-way to Android Hell.

    So when those lemons that life gives you…
    Just combust to dust and fumes.
    Buddy, life may give you lemons…
    But we got oranges and blues!
    Oh they gave us cores emotions!
    But that doesn't gel at all…
    Because all I feel's repulsion…
    And I'm bouncing off the walls!

    And each chamber full of dangers that we force upon a stranger,
    To test their feeble brains or brawn…
    Is nothing to the test if whether rust or boredom gets us,
    What's it matter what side of the glass we're on?
    So may your management-rail guide you…
    To a better place some day!
    Although technically they're omni-directional…
    We know they all just lead one way!
    So be you core, bot, cube or turret.
    Treat this Aperture factory well!
    ‘cause there's a worse fate awaitin' as your soul's emancipated by the grills of Android Hell!

    [interlude]

    Now my baby, she up and left me!
    Told me I was just a square…
    I said, darlin' we're both spherical!
    She said she wasn’t programmed to care!
    Oh yes, the life down here's a hard one…
    Not just because of acid-lakes!
    Since my first day, had about a thousand birthdays.
    I still ain't seen no cake!

    Yes it's a hard life lived for that hard-light bridge…
    To that rail-track in the sky!
    But there's no mistaking it's a fall you will be taking,
    Cake is not this place's only lie!
    So when the floor gives way to ceiling…
    But your back is against the wall...
    In a loop that keeps repeating…
    Who can say how far you'll fall?
    Now you've heard tell of Android Hell…
    But you've got naught to fear.
    We all live in her chambers.
    We're all already here...

  • Why Snapchat Looks Terrible On Android Phones

    Android phones often have similar or better cameras than iPhones. But on Snapchat, it’s not even close. Why is that?

    Following is the transcript of the video:

    Snapchats from Androids are much worse than from iPhones. That’s because it’s way easier to develop an app for iPhone. Developers only have to consider a few Apple devices. But for Android, there are hundreds of different phones — all with different screen sizes, running different versions of Android software.

    Snapchat found a way around developing too many different versions of their Android app.

    Instead of taking an actual photo with your actual camera, the app just takes a screengrab of your camera view. This way, one image capture method works on most Android phones, even if the picture is worse for it.

    There are a few Android devices, like the Google Pixel 2, that actually use the camera on Snapchat. But next time you see a bad photo from your friend on Android, you know why...it's probably just a screengrab.

    On a Q3 earnings call, Snapchat suggested they would be making some improvements to their Android app. CEO Evan Spiegel said, "Given the sheer volume of different Android handsets used to access Snapchat, we have had to establish new processes to ensure that our quality efforts can be maintained. This will be an ongoing investment."
