Google Allows Android Users more Control over their Apps

Users can now decide which information they want to share with the apps

We are pretty aware of the fact that the increased use of technology has made us more vulnerable than ever before and it is often that we think twice before allowing apps the access to get to our personal information. Google, however, understands our hesitation and it has decided to limit the ability of apps to access information. Android users can have more control over their apps and they can decide what sort of information these apps can access. You can decide to keep your data personal and not share contacts or locations with the apps. Google is going to reveal more details on its developer’s conference in San Francisco schedule for this month.

Android is certainly coming closer to Apple’s iOS with these new changes. New features will be introduced for the Android users as Google plans to add more features to the mobile services which are going to attract more customers. According to the findings of Gartner Inc, Android remained head of iOS in terms of the global smartphone market share with 81 percent.

Android is now facing some serious competition from its rival OS. Android’s share in five of the largest European countries have fallen down to 69 percent now according to Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. iOS on the other hand has seen an increase in its share which has now soared up to 20.3 percent.
