5.0 Lollipop : Android in its Newest Shell..
Android 5.0 Lollipop comes out fresh and feels more comfortable than previous versions. Its new design involves bright & bold colors, paper-like graphics, and big fonts. Eye-catching animations & transitions create a unique sense of continuity on navigating the system. It would be right to say thus that Google has taken a big bet on its design that has actually paid off.
Significant improvements are also evident in Android's core features like battery life, notifications, security, and sharing.

Its fairly simple to view all your new messages & e-mails right on the lock screen.
Animations will be everywhere; causing condensing & expanding effects whenever you exit & open the apps drawer. Overall, appearance-wise, the operating system features an overhauled digital look.
Brighter Prospects for Mobile Application Development...
Google unveiled the most updated version of Lollipop in March 2015. No doubt, Android Lollipop comes with a bundle of new features that will render user experience more incredible.
