Lick The Lollipop

If you were thinking some naughty thought when you read the title forget about it. The lollipop being refereed to is the latest installment of the android OS, Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Google has now officially announced the OS though it had been released in its beta version as Android L at Google I/O earlier this year.

So what can we expect you might ask. Well for starters the new OS is engineered to maintain a consistent design across devices, an approach Google calls “Material Design”.

Lollipop also boasts new colours, icons and animations which will give Android users a new look and feel compared to previous versions.  New battery saver modes, notification controls, guest user modes and trusted Bluetooth connections are some sweet spots of Lollipop to look out for.

On the back-end of the OS it features 5000 API for developers which are geared towards making Lollipop flexible to function on all devices and provide more customizability.

You can get your first experience with Lollipop on new Nexus devices and then on current devices in the weeks to follow.
