Google Brings +1 Button To Android, iOS Mobile Devices

Google has now made available the +1 button on mobile devices as well which will enable the users to get attached to the outside world within fraction of a second. This was what users had been wanting from so many days and eventually is now made true.

Google+ Games and Mobile’s lead product manager Punit Soni said that the availability of the +1 button on Android 2.1+ and iOS 4.0+ browsers should help users make recommendations on the web even while on the go. Talking shortly about the technology part, Android is an operating system for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. it is developed by the Open Handset Alliance led by Google.

Google purchased the initial developer of the software, Android inc., in 2005. The unveiling of the Android distribution on 5 November 2007 was announced with the founding of the Open Handset Alliance, a consortium of 80 hardware, software, and telecommunication companies devoted to advancing open standards for mobile devices. Google released most of the Android code under the Apache License, a free software license. The Android Open Source Project (AOSP) is tasked with the maintenance and further development of Android.

Android consists of a kernel based on the Linux kernel, with middleware, libraries and APIs written in C and application software running on an application framework which includes Java-compatible libraries based on Apache Harmony. Android uses the Dalvik virtual machine with just-in-time compilation to run compiled Java code. Android has a large community of developers writing applications (“apps”) that extend the functionality of the devices. Developers write primarily in Java. There are currently more than 250,000 apps available for Android. Android Market is the online app store run by Google, though apps can also be downloaded from third-party sites.

iOS 4 was made available to the public for the iPhone and iPod touch on June 21, 2010. This is the first major iOS release to drop support for some devices. The iPhone 3G and iPod touch second in general have limited features, while the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3rd. Gen. & iPod touch 4th. Gen. have all features enabled. The iPhone and iPod touch 1st Gen. is not capable of running iOS 4.0 and above. iPad compatibility was added with the release of iOS 4.2.1 on November 22, 2010. Google is fully set to make this new feature unique and satiable to all its users.

Taking into consideration the increasing number of surfers through daily use devices like the smartphones and other mobile units, Google has decided to harness this potential to the fullest and provide its complete benefit to the users. Though it will surely take time for Google+ to beat the popularity of Facebook, it is seemingly possible of how different this project is ought to be taking into consideration the craze among users for its arrival.

As of late August, the +1 button has made its appearance on more than a million websites. The +1 button is directly integrated with Google’s social network, Google+. Yes, it is a serious matter of concern for Facebook owners because Google is always known to make new things out with a difference and once this project is done with its full vigour, keeping its users addicted to itself will surely be tough matter for Facebook.
