All of us are fans of different mobile platforms but it’s still healthy to take off our fanboy goggles and admit when a rival platform does certain things better than our OS of choice. Droid Life’s Kellex is just such an Android fan and he thinks that iOS 8 has six terrific features that he’d really like to see Google incorporate into future versions of Android.

Without going into too much detail, Kellex would like to see Android adopt the interactive notifications system that lets you respond to messages directly from your notifications center without having to open up other apps; more seamless mobile hotspot and phone call integration with your computer that doesn’t require signing into other services; faster ways to access the people you call and message the most; basically all the new features that Apple brought to Messages in iOS 8; the Family Sharing feature that lets you share things you’ve bought on up to six different iOS devices as long as they’re all registered with the same credit card; and the new App Store feature that will let developers bundle their apps together and sell them at a discount.

While we’ve given you a quick overview of Kellex’s recommendations, his full post is very detailed and worth reading and can be found by clicking the source link below.
