Android has a large number of applications available for download in Google play store. Around 1 million apps are published and over 50 billion downloads.

According to survey conducted in April-May 2013 found that Android is the most popular platform for developers .It is used by almost 71% of the mobile developer’s population.

Google Proudly announced that 1 billion activated devices now use the Android OS worldwide.


Android was founded by  Andy Rubin(co-founder of Danger),
