The Android Market is growing at an astounding rate. But it's hard to navigate, and most would agree that it doesn't deliver all the functionality and reliability that consumers find in Apple's App Store. If Google is to become the de facto leader in the mobile market, its Android app store will need to be better.
Google's Android operating system is performing extremely well. In fact, it's leading Apple's iOS, which most believed would carry the smartphone market forward. Android OS' success can be directly attributed to some of the many devices that run the software. Plus, it's developed by Google, which has only helped the software. But that doesn't mean that Android OS is guaranteed to be a success. In fact, the software still has several shortcomings that need to be addressed in future iterations if Google wants to maintain its lead in the mobile marketplace. Admittedly, some of those changes will be easy to make. However, there will be some major updates required, as well. Read on to find out what Android OS needs to keep its momentum going.
