Switched from iOS to Android - The one-year marker.CyanogenMod version of the operating system I have been using has been very stable and I can't even remember the last time that the phone gave me any sort of weird problem.
What do I miss from iOSTo be honest, I miss very little from iOS and this is not just because I still have my iPhone and my iPad to play with from time to time. I never did much of the video editing on iOS even though it was possible and did a great job of it. So it doesn't bother me too much that the Android video editing software is absolute rubbish. I do record audio into the Samsung Galaxy S3 and into my Nexus 7 although I prefer to use the iOS application called Twisted Wave. The audio recording software on iOS is much better, but Audio Evolution Pro does work well enough and I have used this to record a number of AudioBoo David Allen Wizardgold podcasts. I can record the audio well enough despite the fact that there is the automatic gain control on the Android devices, I would prefer to set the gain manually within the application. A couple of times I have managed to clip the audio recording and I just hadve to be careful how close I put the microphone to my mouth.
The advantages of changing to Android from iOSThe best thing about changing to Android from iOS is the fact that I have alternative keyboards that I can use. On the occasions that I go back to iOS and use it for entering data it annoys me to see that the letters on the keyboard don't change to show whether you are typing in a capital letter or a lowercase letter. The Android keyboards are much better. Even better still, with Android it is possible to use alternative keyboards such as the keyboard called SwiftKey or Swype. For a long time I was using the SwiftKey keyboard because of the spooky way that it knew which word I was going to type next, this made it incredibly quick to enter text into my Android devices. The only thing was, was that I was not terribly happy with the way that the dictation worked with regards the British English punctuation. So I started to use Swype instead and I find that I really prefer how the dictation works and sometimes I'm amazed at how fast I can get text into my Samsung Galaxy S3 or Nexus 7.
