Android distribution for July shows KitKat coming up on 20%

When the Android distribution numbers are published each month, a great debate begins. Many point out the fragmentation (that does still exist) while others defend what Android is all about and how Google is fixing its problem. But as of late, the numbers keep getting better and better for Android. In fact, KitKat is approaching 20% after sitting below 15% last month. And everything behind KitKat has actually seen a decline. This includes Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich, Gingerbread, and Froyo.

So let the hate roll in, even if Android is improving more and more each month. Let us know in the comments what you think about Android’s distribution for July.

Android Distribution Updated for June 2014 – Kit Kat Jumps to Almost 14%

Posted by Kellex June - 4 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Google updated their Android distribution numbers today, showing a big jump for Kit Kat (Android 4.4+) to 13.6%, up from the 8.5% we saw in May. Jelly Bean, on the other hand, saw a drop to 58.4% from 60.8%. The rest of the older Android builds fell as well, like Ice Cream Sandwich which now sits at 12.3%, Gingerbread at 14.9%, and Froyo at 0.8%.

Honeycomb is now no longer listed. Throw your bad self a party, 3.0.

And that’s that.

Android distribution May 2014

The latest Android distribution numbers for May show that KitKat keeps climbing at the expense of older Android software. The numbers for 4.4 put it on 8.5% of all Android devices, showing over a 50% improvement from last month. Jelly Bean is still holding strong, but 4.1 took a dip to make room for newer versions of Jelly Bean, which all saw some slight improvements. Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread both fell about 1%, but Honeycomb didn’t change at all, and Froyo still accounts for 1% of devices. It’ll disappear completely one day, right?

KitKat really looks like it’s picking up steam, with newer devices (like the popular Galaxy S 5 and HTC One launching with KitKat on board) coming out and older devices finally getting their promised 4.4 updates, things aren’t looking too bad for the most recent version of Google’s software.

Android Distribution Updated for May: Kit Kat Up, Jelly Bean Down

Android Distribution Updated for May:  Kit Kat Up, Jelly Bean Down


Google updated the Android distribution numbers to start the month of May, showing a solid jump for Kit Kat (Android 4.4+) from 5.3% in April to 8.5% this month. Thanks to that jump in Kit Kat, we are seeing a small decline in Jelly Bean, from 61.4% to 60.8%. 

The rest of the numbers all saw slight movement, as you would expect at this point in the game. Old phones continue to hang onto old builds of Android, like Gingerbread which dropped from 17.8% to 16.2%. Froyo and Honeycomb continue to stick on the list somehow, while Ice Cream Sandwich still commands 13.4% of the pie.

And yep, that’s that.

Android distribution numbers for April proudly display KitKat breaking 5%

Posted by wicked April - 2 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

android_distribution_april_2014

The latest version of Android is on the rise. Last month, Android 4.4 KitKat sat around 2.5% and that number has doubled since to 5.3%! As more flagship devices running KitKat have yet to be released, May and June will likely see rather large increases. Also, some older devices are going to be getting KitKat as well. Its predecessor, Jelly Bean, saw just a minor drop in percentage points.

Thankfully, older versions of Android are seeing declines. Gingerbread dropped 1.2% and somehow Honeycomb is clinging on for dear life. At some point this year, I do expect Honeycomb to let go. A version like Ice Cream Sandwich can stick around a little bit longer since its core does resemble more recent versions; however, updates to Jelly Bean are still expected.

Posted by Kellex April - 1 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

The Android distribution numbers of been updated for the beginning of April, with Kit Kat (Android 4.4+) showing signs of growth. The newest version of Android now commands 5.3% of the pie, up from 2.5% last month. With that growth we are seeing a slight decline in Jelly Bean numbers to 61.4% from a flat 62.0%. In other words, the newest devices running the newest version of Android continue to run the newest version of Android.

Ice Cream Sandwich saw a decline to 14.3% (from 15.2%), as did Gingerbread (17.8% from 19.0%).

And that’s that.

Android crash stats show KitKat most stable

Posted by wicked March - 27 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Having device crash issues? It might just be your operating system. According to Crittercism, which just released a new report named “State of Mobile”, Gingerbread crashes the most among Android builds. The most stable? That honor goes to KitKat, Jelly Bean, and Ice Cream Sandwich.


Gingerbread crashes on users roughly 1.7% of the time. The other three? Only about 0.7% of the time. Crittercosm tapped into their one billion monthly users to spot these statistics, and provide a service that maximizes app performance. In addition to system crashes, the report also found that there were interesting metrics on app crashes.

According to the report, 47% of apps crash at least 1% of the time. Roughly 32% of apps shut down over 2% of the time, with games being the largest culprit. Games crash 4.4% of the time, or about twice as much as apps proper. Photo and video apps crash 1.8% of the time, which also contributes to these numbers.

We know what you’re wondering: what about iOS? Those incidents of the phone randomly rebooting aren’t fables. Apple’s iOS 7.1 crashes 1.6% of the time, while iOS 7 crashes at a 2.1% clip. Those iOS 6 holdouts are crashing at about 2.5%. That’s an interesting metric for those who tout iOS as more stable than Android.

What the study didn’t tell us what which runtime those on KitKat were running. While we assume most are using Dalvik, we’d love to see a breakout of those on ART as well. We’ve been runnign both internally, and have seen no crashing instances with ART, much less 0.7% of the time.
