August - Distribution Numbers
Google is a little late this month with distribution figures for Android, but there’s good news, with KitKat now showing as being installed on one-fifth of all Android devices out there.

Jelly Bean for the most part declined in usage (except Android 4.2), but Gingerbread gained a little of its declining market share back, clawing back 0.1% of the user base out there. Froyo continues on at 0.7%. Public Service Announcement: We have Christmas, Fathers Day, and any number of birthdays coming up, if you know someone with a phone running something less than Android 4.x Upgrade them PLEASE!

The comparsions to last month for your consideration :

Android Version June July/August
Android 2.2 (Froyo) 0.7% 0.7%
Android 2.3.3 – 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) 13.5% 13.6%
Android 4.0.3 – 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) 11.4% 10.6%
Android 4.1.x (JellyBean) 27.8% 26.5%
Android 4.2.x (JellyBean) 19.7% 19.8%
Android 4.3 (JellyBean) 9.0% 7.9%
Android 4.4 (KitKat) 17.9% 20.9%

Daniel Tyson   Ausdroid's Editor in Chief

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Up to 29% of Android devices supporting Android Wear! (Yes, noting that most who would be looking at Android Wear would have new phones anyway)
