Orange County, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2010
Battery consumption is one of the most critiqued elements of smartphone usage since the introduction of the iPhone. Iconosys today, released Version 3.1 of its SMSReplier Pro™ with DriveReply™ with battery consumption efficiency maximized for Android OS phones. By optimizing the services running on the Android and using a complex set of proprietary algorithms with respect to GPS tracking, the background DriveReply™ service is able to use a significant amount less of battery to provide its function.
The Droid X sold 100,000 units on its opening day last week on July 15th, 2010. The Android phones continue to gain popularity, especially while the iPhone 4 continues to struggle with its technical issues. Tens of companies are now making the popular Google Android their chosen smart-phone platform; this includes LG, Motorola, HTC, Samsung, Google, Sanyo. The Android OS’ open platform has only helped power this momentum shift in favor of Android. Android Marketplace reports that the number of apps available for the Android platform is now approaching the “100,000 apps” milestone almost 2 years faster than comparable growth seen by the iPhone app store.
“When using any application that depends on mapping and GPS technology to support its features, battery efficiency is very critical. We have addressed this challenge head-on, and have in fact come up with what we believe is an excellent solution,” comments Iconosys founder and CEO Wayne Irving, II. Irving adds, “We liken this robust update to when Microsoft made the huge step in the 90’s from Windows 3.0 to 3.1. It’s just that good!”
