Jelly Bean Hits 10%

Android Jelly Bean 4.1 and 4.2 (the latter being reserved for the Nexus line of devices) is now on an estimated 10% of all new Android devices, tablets and phones, currently offered by all carriers and all retailers.  Jelly Bean brings enhanced stability to Android, new and useful features, and an eye-pleasing and useful UI.  If you’re still using an older version of Android, like I am on my cell  phone, try one of the Jelly Bean launchers in the Google Play store.  You’ll at least get the UI of Jelly Bean which has some intrinsic value for older versions of Android.  Here are two to try, both free (the latter offering a paid version with more features):  Jelly Bean Launcher by Team Syndicate, and Nova Launcher by TeslaCoil Software.  And there are others to try.  I prefer Jelly Bean Launcher; it’s very close to the true Jelly Bean launchers in 4.1 or 4.2, but it doesn’t yet allow folders.  Nova is a good runner-up.  Use one to breathe new life into your aging Android UI.
