Android Distribution Numbers - August 2014
September has brought about a new update to the Android distribution numbers, and after reaching the heady heights of being on one-fifth of all Android devices last month, KitKat is now sitting on the edge of hitting the 25% mark.

After racking up 54.5% market share in the Android world, Jelly Bean has shown only a slight dip in its share, retaining top spot on 54.4% of all Android devices. Former king-pin Gingerbread is now on only 11.6% of devices and looks set to continue its downward trend. So too is Ice-Cream Sandwich heading south, dropping 1% of market share overall in the last month.

It’s a good result for Android 4.x and above anyway, we’ll check back in next month to check it out. Here’s a comparsion to last months numbers for your consideration :

Android Version July/August September
Android 2.2 (Froyo) 0.7% 0.7%
Android 2.3.3 – 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) 13.6% 11.6%
Android 4.0.3 – 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) 10.6% 9.6%
Android 4.1.x (JellyBean) 26.5% 25.1%
Android 4.2.x (JellyBean) 19.8% 20.7%
Android 4.3 (JellyBean) 7.9% 8.0%
Android 4.4 (KitKat) 20.9% 24.5%

    Do they ever report stats for the version of Google Play Services that is being run on the devices?

    They said at I/O that 93% are on the latest Play Services.

    Developers have access to the stats about their own users through the Play Store console.
