The latest distribution charts for the Android platform is somewhat a good news. Android 4.4 version jumped by more than 4 percent while Android 2.2 Froyo is finally on its way out, cementing the road towards Android version defragmentation.
As of July 7, 2014, Froyo has descended to 0.1 percent of the market pie, down from last month's 0.2 percent. Froyo will most likely be edged out by next month. The latest to get boot was Android 3.0 honeycomb last month.
Android 4.4 KitKat reaches 17.9 percent which is a remarkable 4.3 percent increase from last month. The biggest increase was in June, jumping by 5.1 percent from May's 8.5 to 13.6 percent.
Android Jelly Bean continues to flip-flop among themselves. Android 4.2 is increasing while 4.1 continues to decline steadily. Android 4.3 on the other hand, fluctuates from increasing to decreasing depending on the month, which could mean that manufacturers upgrading to Jelly Bean are sometimes choosing the slightly older 4.2 over the more recent 4.3.
