Android Platform Distribution [April 2015]

I've missed my early month topic of updating the platform distribution numbers, sorry it's out so late.

But better late than never.

VersionCodenameAPIDistribution
2.2Froyo80.4%
2.3.3 -
2.3.7
Gingerbread106.4%
4.0.3 -
4.0.4
Ice Cream Sandwich155.7%
4.1.xJelly Bean1616.5%
4.2.x1718.6%
4.3185.6%
4.4KitKat1941.4%
5.0Lollipop215.0%
5.1220.4%

So, folks will look at this and say "5%" on the lastest iteration, it's been 6 months.  Well, keep in mind that aside from Nexus devices, this update has only JUST started to make its way to devices now.

Again, take a look at the initial growth period.  It is beating Kitkat.  Kitkat started on the charts earlier, but took 5 months on the list before it hit the 5% mark.  However, it is behind where Kitkat was this time last year (it would be on 8.5% of devices)

You can check all our facts and figures out on the Platform Distribution table in the database page.
