Android 2.3 Gingerbread It was one of the most relevant versions in the Android operating system panorama. Although it was not the version with a more elegant interface, it was an important step for Android to become an interesting operating system. Now comes the end of the road for Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which will no longer have any role in the current Android, but which will remain for history.
Android 2.3 Gingerbread
Before this version, Android was nothing more than a copy of iOS. In fact, from this version it continued to be so, but it can be said that it was with this version that a large number of users began to reach the operating system. Android 2.3 Gingerbread landed more than six years ago, and at that time there was not even the interface Holo that came with Ice Cream Sandwich, much less the interface Material Design. At that time it was a very different Android, but one that offered us a wide application platform, and mobiles that aspired to be true rivals of the iPhone.
Today we can say goodbye to Gingerbread. Mobile phones that have this operating system will obviously continue to work, but from now on Google Play Services will no longer be compatible with this version of the operating system, which means that many of the applications that use Google services will no longer work. , or versions of the application will have to be released complementary to the versions that are developed with the latest versions of the SDK, something that does not make any sense. After all, if Google no longer considers this version relevant, why would developers continue to give it importance?
Android 2.3 Gingerbread it does not die, rather it reaches the end of the road. A version that will go down in history is over, and that has changed a lot in six years throughout all the updates until reaching Android 7.0 Nougat.
