The iPhone was first launched by Steve Jobs and this was on the 7th of January in 2007. It is from then that, the iPhone series of Apple phones have been continuously produced with each series outmatching the previous just to ensure that, users enjoy the new utilities that iPhone has to offer. The annunciation of iPhone was received with joy as this is a type of phone that had never been seen before and had now penetrated the market where everyone is looking to have a handset that will provide them with convenience through the access of various applications. Some users saw the coming of the iPhone as a gift that came from God. Apple has since been able to make more modifications such as slimming the iPhone to suit user needs as well as other features such as usability. For instance, there are lots of applications for instance gaming applications that one can access with the iPhone. This is one among the list of things that one gets to enjoy from the iPhone.


Improvement of android apps

There has been a lot of changes that have been made on the android applications to make them better and reliable. Android is an operating system that was developed by Google which is an open sources system. It is one of the phone operating systems that is widely used and this is due to its flexibility which allows it to accommodate more applications to use in android enabled devices. This therefore allows users to get to do a lot of things through their android phones. The use of the android has been growing at a first rate since; it was launched on the October of 2003. The android technology has currently reached the 4.0 version which has lot of features that it can support for both phones as well as tablets. For instance, the 4.2 version has the keyboard gesture capability which is what facilitates Skype an application that is now being used by an increasing number of users.


Windows mobile

This is a phone operating system that has been in existence for quite some time as compared to the android and the OS X of the iPhone. It was developed by Microsoft which also developed applications that are compatible with windows mobile. It also supports the Microsoft office suit which its users have been able to use. It is also the earliest operating system to be used in mobile phones and thus gave way to other systems such as the android. Its use has been depreciating over the years with the infiltration of the android technology which is quickly finding its way through the phone market.

The reason as to why windows is not gaining popularity as with the time that it came to existence is because; it is not flexible. This means that it supports less open source applications available for users. And with this limitation, its users do not have the ability to use the applications they would need from the hordes of applications that are available.

More apps for android and iOS

More applications for the android and the iOS have been developed by Viber which is a platform from which lots of applications can be found. With the increment of the applications that can be found for use, users now have the chance to extend the use of their phones through the new applications made available for them to use. The provision of applications by Viber also includes those that can be used for the Windows mobile as well as the OS X. There is good news for the users of android and iOS the versions of these operating systems have been updated to allow for more functionality.

Such functionalities include video calling among which provides a totally different calling when calling friends and loved ones. This is made possible through a new voice tool that also assists in searching for contacts through voice input. Viber has been able to able sure that it can provide users with applications that properly integrate with their phones. In the future, it is planning to make Linux based applications to improve on the aspect of convenience of the applications it provides.
