KitKat doing well

Written by Nick Farrell

The no messy way to eat chocolate

Google's chocolate themed KitKat operating system is starting to do quite well. According to the search engine outfit KitKat is now on 13.6 per cent of Android devices. KitKat was on just 8.5 per cent of devices in the week running up to 1 May.

KitKat is now the third most-used version of Android, finally overtaking Ice Cream Sandwich, which is on 12.3 per cent. Jelly Bean is still the leader on 58.4 per cent. Version 4.1.x being the most popular variant of Jelly Bean, representing half of those users, or 29 per cent of the total user base.

Gingerbread is second on 14.9 per cent. It is expected that next month KitKat will move into second place. For those that wondered. Froyo has vanished into the depths of Mordor and only exists on 0.8 per cent of devices.

KitKat adoption has spread much more slowly than Jelly Bean. Jelly Bean was on over 10 per cent of devices in February 2013, whereas KitKat was only on 1.4 per cent in February of this year.
