Who created Android Logo?
Irina Blok, a Russia-born, San Francisco-based designer created the iconic Android logo in 2007. When she was working at Google, she created the logo that was needed to be simple and involve a robot.
Her inspiration was a pictogram that we usually see on the doors of public restrooms.
Type by swiping
Type by swiping is an easiest way to quickly format message, create notes and search in browser. All you need is a swipe-typing application. If you do not want to use a third parry swipe typing app, you can use Google’s own app known as Google Keyboard. It’s available on Google Play store and is available for free.
