/ On : 5:59 PM/ Thank you for visiting my small blog here. If you wanted to discuss or have the question around this article, please contact me e-mail at Gps_86@gmail.com.


Apple iOS 4.3 vs. Android 3.0 Honeycomb, do you think it is a provocative title? Why not? This can be your main guide to show you which one is the software to meet your requirements and works very well because of its strong and powerful performance.

Each platform has some interesting updates, but comparing the two platforms let us know it the Android 3.0 is an actual tablet-centric OS, while iOS 4.3 shows its enhancement from the original iPad experience.

Browsers
The iOS has ‘Nitro’ Javascript engine, giving a boost to online use and double the power in version 4.2.1. In addition, there will be improved browser and web application performance.

Android Honeycomb has done so many improvements that are considerable because of the real efforts made. The additional features grabbed from Chrome are there, including tabbed browsing. Android also supports Javascript and plug-ins, along with the zoom and scroll functions that have been improved.


Social Network
In comparison the two platforms are fairly equal because each gives us contact integration with Facebook, Twitter and other native social networking apps, along with standing features which are enhanced from previous versions. The iOS 4.3 even has Location Services receiving a revamp and runs quickly accessible in the Settings menu. The iOS 4.3 has new Find My Friends, attacking what Android has established Google Latitude.

Apps Media
Apple has developed AirPlay, a new tech of Apple’s wireless media streaming allowing users to virtually stream real-time video, audio and photo images direct to Apple TVs. Even the iOS 4.3 version is able to run streaming of web-based H.264 videos.

iOS 4.3 will also allow you to stream your self-made videos straight from your device. You would just need to transfer the video to a computer and synchronize it, but now Apple has eliminated the fuss.

Talking about multitasking capability, showing us the two platforms give us a great progressive strength, particularly Android. Honeycomb is a good luck because of its quick and user-friendly apearance. Users will not only be capable of operating high-end apps and content, but also get an integrated OpenGL graphics acceleration. The Renderscript 3D graphics engine is developed as well.

Compatibility
One of the Android’s weaknesses is about its problem of fragmentation across devices. Google is always seeking to improve it with future versions, but the older devices of the platform will be still locked.

Apple has a better iOS because of its compatibility, and it might be caused by its “seniority” compared to Android.

Interface
iOs has been changed a bit while we have a look at the original iPad. Its new multi-touch function presents the best touchscreen display for users, as consequence they can use their four and five finger gestures.

Something new also comes to the current application and the homescreen. The replacement of the screen-Lock appears with the Mute switch, and the iOS 4.3 offers a toggle allowing users to choose which function to use it for.

On the other hand, Android reveals it in the interface users will also find Native google apps, such as Gmail, which is close to what Apple has made with its presentation as its parts of the extensive enhancements with new features. There are applications and notifications bar at the bottom of the homescreen. And thus, you can navigate through currently open apps.

Most of all, the big thing to keep in mind about Android is its inherent customization it has over most other platforms.

Conclusion
We see that improvements made in iOS 4.3 are cool. All cases and problems that need to be improved are resolved very well. However, we would still find difficult to turn our heads because Android is now much more competitive. Android is more customizable over intuitiveness, easy to use and integration. All in all, Android Honeycomb is more impressive and surprising, while iOS didn’t make many changes compared to the Honeycomb.
