Things Android copied in general and thing inspired
Galaxy S Series and Tablet
-Charging dock in Samsung Tablet
-Some Tabs and Phones look like Apple products(Galaxy S1, Galaxy Tab)
-TouchWiz and Nature UX(looks like iPhone UI)
-Battery Percentage(Since android users bash Siri of copying, when Siri is something almost totally different)
-S_Voice(Siri without an auto voice response)
-Google Now(inspired by Siri, or Siri competitor)
-Multitouch Capacative Phone OS(inspired by iPhone and Major competitor)
-Note:LG Prada was first Capacative
touchscreen phone, but iPhone was the
first Capacative Multi-Touch screen phone.
This is for all the Fandroids thinking we are
-Print Screen on Mobile
If you have anymore please write down below. I wrote this because I am tired of Fandroids calling Apple the copycat, and saying that iOS stole. And im an Android user by the way, and I regret not getting an iPhone when it got on Verizon. And im sorry if its unorganized, im on mobile making this thread.
Im going to act like a hipacrite, because Fandroid claim Android was inspired and not stolen
Why iOS Didn't steal:
-iMessage: Fandroids claim they iOS stole it from BlackBerry(BBM). iMessage is an SMS/MMS application, combined with an Apple account(Unlike Blackberry where its a seperate app)
-Notifications: Fandroids claim it came from Android. Truth is that iOS had this through Jailbreak, and Google hired the person to put it in android.
-- iOS Notification is different because
You can access it in any app, where in android, the notification bar has to show in order to pull it down or go to the HomeScreen. Theirs doesn't show Weather and Stocks. Notifications can be deleted differently. A banner will show up on iOS and will disappear soon, unlike android you will need to through sounds or LED or by locking the phone or bieng on the home screen
-more to be added and be edited to look organized and clean
keep on going with your effort. i'll get the popcorn. i hope you don't believe that nonsense
apple is universally famous, nay, infamous, for stealing everyone else ideas and then trying to call them their own. sadly, their fans actually believe that apple 'invented' everything :-/.
next you're going to tell me that apple 'invented' things like swipe to unlock (etc etc...and all the other things that they didn't) :-/
Wasnt Siri in itself an app that Apple bought from a dev and then stripped it down and turned it into the P.O.S SW that even The Woz finds disappointing?
The OP's ignorance, is on a level ive never seen before.
The mobile industry is filled with borrowed ideas and inventions, many of the things listed above existed even bofere the iPhone in multiple other phones including some Samsungs, i totally agree about Samsung copying iPhone UI and design with the 1st Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab, absolutely, but after that they began to go on their own , and have become more successful by doing so, the Galaxy S3 looks nothing like an iPhone and has become their most successful smartphone.
The rest of the OP's post is full of rubbish, and as for Android's notification bar not showing weather, ever used GO Weather or similar apps that do this, seems even his knowledge of the OS he supposedly uses isnt that great either, its a damn shame.
We could create a very long list of things Appled "copied" from other manufacturers to, just to show the utter stupidity of this topic.
