Android 4.0 - Ice Cream Sandwich

Ice Cream Sandwich upped the ante on customisation and user control – tailor your home screen, define how much data you use and instantly share content when you want.

Customise home screen

Ice Cream Sandwich introduced app folders and a favourites tray. Widgets, which embed live app content directly on your home screen, became more flexible: expand your widget to show more content or shrink to save space.

Data usage control

Manage your network data usage to keep mobile costs under control. Track how much data you use, set warning levels and hard limits, and disable your service if you reach the limit.

Android Beam

Futuristic at the time, Android Beam allowed two phones to instantly share content via NFC by simply touching them together. Share apps, contacts, music and videos with someone else – all without needing to open a menu, an app or pair a phone.

Android History from Wikipedia

Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Android's user interface is mainly based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, Google has further developed Android TV for televisions, Android Auto for cars, and Android Wear for wrist watches, each with a specialized user interface. Variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, and other electronics.
