Apple iOS 8 vs Android kitkat – The Main Differences
Apple iOS 8 and Android 4.4 KitKat are both new mobile operating heavyweights. Our iOS 8 vs KitKat comparison review takes a close look at each new operating system.
Interactive Notifications are the big new deal in iOS 8. In iOS the Notifications are designed to spur new kinds of behaviors You can now reply to emails or messages from Notifications.Android KitKat also has interactive notifications, but they’re not as powerful because they require you to quit what you’re already doing to respond to the notification. Although Android announced this feature first, Apple has a better implementation.
while looking at android vs. ios 8, another big new feature from Apple is the presence of the new Quick Type keyboard. Quick Type enables you to tap on words suggestions as you type. It bases guesses for the next word based upon your past conversations. Apple’s Quick Type keyboard will even type into account the app you are using, and will make different suggestions in Messages than in Mail. Click here to watch iOS 8.4 jailbreaking video.
Apple’s big new cloud service is iCloud Drive. With iCloud Drive, you save, and access files directly to a folder on your Mac’s hard drive. The files stored in iCloud Drive are then accessible inside iCloud Drive-compatible apps.It’s hardly a unique feature, however, and Google has Google Drive (not to mention Dropbox, One Drive, Box.net and all the other similar cloud services).
Love it or loath it, email is an essential part of any modern technology device. the truth remains that for the vast majority of people it is one of the first things they set up on a new phone, tablet or PC. Using a good client then is very important if you want to get the best out of your electronic missives, and there is no shortage of apps on offer across the iOS platform.
Since the release of Windows 8 Microsoft has been using a new design language that feels modern and sparse. In some ways it’s reminiscent of Google’s simplistic, clean approach, one which is very easy on the eye.
outlook vs Apple mail, Which is Better?
The new Outlook app is a very good example of how this refined approach can look quite at home on the iOS platform, and bears a passing resemblance to Apple’s own Mail client.Outlook features support for a number of recognized email services, including Exchange, Outlook.com, iCloud, Gmail, and Yahoo, all of which share a unified inbox when set up. This means that you don’t have to jump between different account to see any new email, as it is all controlled from one single inbox. This is the same as Apple’s Mail app, and a feature that makes using both offerings much easier than some of their competitors.
By contrast Apple Mail is a straightforward design that features the same two column layout with just the search bar at the top of the left hand column. Both apps have options to display the various mailboxes that make up the inbox; this is useful if you use tags to sort your mail – say for example on Gmail – as you can navigate to these within a couple of taps.
Apple has stuck with its tried and tested menu tree, but somehow it seems cluttered, or at least somewhat scruffy when compared to the elegant font and layout that Microsoft has chosen for Outlook. It’s a little thing, after all both show very similar results, but it’s noticeable that Outlook feels more modern and polished in this area.
