Is there any app that could turn Android into iPhone and vice versa? Is it too much to ask to enjoy both Android and iOS simultaneously? As a hardcore technology enthusiast, I would always like to toy with different technology and iOS, android are no exceptions. I have to admit that, Android has got my utmost affection and attention from the past few months, due to the sheer amount of tweaks, OS customization, custom ROMs, launcher, widgets and whatnot it has got. But that doesn’t mean iOS is any less enticing. The exponential growth of android and arrays of features poured and distributed in every update amazes me. The Android OS comes with tons of customization options and system tweaks, and on the other hand, iOS comes with an abundance of apps and Cydia tweaks that makes iOS a worthwhile contender. Despite such phenomenal growth of android, iOS is still by far the best OS (a hot debatable topic) due to the fact that it has smooth interface and offers many great apps and games.

The million dollar question is why one would want to hard reset Samsung Galaxy S3—the fastest device on the earth to date? Undoubtedly, Samsung’s new offering aka Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the most powerful devices out there, but it is prone to errors. Nothing is written in the epitaph. Like someone said that nothing is perfect in this world, the same applies to Samsung products as well. Neither Samsung nor Apple, or any products for that matter, is close to perfect. While Samsung is known as a master of sumpsimus among fans, there are certain problems bound to occur over the period of time. For example, pile of play store data and other data rotten into cache could ultimately slow down your device.
Google Play store’s breakneck growth could prove to be a much needed fodder for android ecosystem. Although Apple store is still ahead of it in many aspects, android marketplace (now known as Google Play) isn’t far behind either. Google keeps innovating new stuff and has not got a dirty advantage by adding more arsenals to the Play store. Google music, books, magazine, movies and TV shows are some of the recent advancement in this front. Unfortunately, Google’s inclination towards US territory leaves other users crave for the availability of such functionality in their country.
