Switching from Android to IOS

Sep 30, 2014, 09:43 AM

after using android devices for just over a year I have been tempted to go back into the Apple fold. I have ordered a new iPhone 6 and I can't wait to get my hands on it. There are loads of new things in iOS eight which have brought me back such as the extensibility feature which allows me to work with the features of one application while still in another application. I can do things in the Paper Camera app from within the photos application which is pretty handy. I like that we can have widgets that we can drag down from the top in the notifications area although I don't think it's quite makes up for what I have been using with the Google Now.

I'm looking forward to using my favourite applications that are only available on iOS. These applications would be Drafts, OmniFocus, Clear and Day One. There are a number of other applications that I'm pleased to be using gain over on the iOS platform and the applications in general are better on the Apple side of the fence. This is one of the reasons why it sometimes seems that I was getting a second rate experience by using android.

The biggest problem with using Android was the fact that with my Galaxy S3 I didn't get any updates from the carrier to be to upgrade it to KitKat. I had to do some upgrading by using rooting and CyanogenMod and to be honest it was a lot of messing around that I didn't really enjoy doing.

I have already been trying out some of the new features in iOS 8 using my iPad and loving them. I can't wait to get my hands on the new iPhone 6 to be able to take advantage of the connections between iOS devices and there will also be the connection between the Mac when Yosemite becomes available. The added security that I will get by having Touch ID is going to be pretty handy especially seeing as they have been extensions being made across from my passwords application 1Password. So they go this is David Allen Wizardgold having a bit of a chat about switching back over to iOS from Android.
