3 Awesome Features in Android’s 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich”

So, much like Backstreet the screeching boy band of the 1990′s, Google’s back again. And this time they’ve rolled out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, one of my favorite Operating Systems out there.

And the fact of the matter is this. Ever since its launch I have stayed away from reviewing it. I spent all my time dabbling, exploring and being delighted. And if and when I did get stuck, I would get online and find me some answers. I mean, most of the cats who have written about the Ice Cream Sandwich’ latest avatar are far more capable and tech oriented than I.

However, you can never tame a beautiful mind, nor can you completely discount the simple mind (like mine). And why?

Well, I couldn’t manage to talk about the technical abilities and prowess of the OS, but I did manage to discover some wicked features of the Ice Cream Sandwich which I just Had to share. So here we go:

Night Vision

Inverted Rendering

Ok, this sounds wild, wicked and improbable right? Well, it’s real, mad and as cool as can be. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich uses ‘Inverted Colors’ which renders your screen dark and highlights text and multimedia with brighter, luminescent tones making seeing in the dark easy as pie.

To activate this function go to ‘Settings’ and select ‘Accessibility’. Here enable/select ‘Inverted Rendering’ and you’re good to go.

Remove Apps directly from App Drawer

Remember the time, to paraphrase Michael Jackson, when you couldn’t uninstall Apps without navigating through half your phone’s virtual landscape?

Well, fret no more. Now the Android 4.0 offers you the chance to remove installed Apps just by going to the App drawer, selecting and holding down on the App you want to delete. hey Presto!

No more App. Oh, a note though, pre-installed Apps that came with the OS cannot be removed from the Drawer.

Adaptive & Coherent Predictive Text Input

Keyboard and Text Input

The keyboard on the Android ICS may not be close to the actual version that the Microsoft Surface carries, but it has a wonderful predictive text adaption that makes typing really easy, intuitive and much quicker. And it doesn’t create any of the hilarious bloopers that the iPhone can create. Although the iPhone does create some hilarious mutations of what the text was meant to be, and what came out.

So that’s the best features I’ve stumbled across on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. What about you? Have any for me?
