Dominance of Samsung exclusive apps causing damage to the Android world


Samsung is the best and the topmost brand taking a lead in the Android world these days. It can be seen that with the coming of Samsung Galaxy range of phones, especially after the launch of the S series of Galaxy range, Samsung has been able to succeed to a very large extent in the world of smart phones. iPhone, which was in the top most position before the coming of the S series, has started experiencing the coming of yet another giant to the top position.

Samsung has been able to make the word of Smart phones gain a peculiar position in the Smartphone market these days. The reasons are many. The real reasons why most people choose Samsung phones are because the apps released for the same are extremely user friendly. Yet another reason is that you get a whole lot of apps that are highly functional in the app store. Quality of the apps too is superior in nature. The highlight of all of the above reasons is that such apps are available for the users for free of cost.

Since app store has been lined up with apps for all kind of Android phones, other Smartphone users also have access to the apps. But when exclusives for Samsung phones alone are released, there is a serious threat rising up for the android ecosystem.

When Samsung has proved that it can become the best in the field of smart phones, it has indirectly started becoming a threat to the rest of the Android smart phones too. Since Samsung is the leading Smartphone company that is preferred by most of the people round the world. Taking into account this factor, many leading companies have started releasing Apps exclusively for Samsung smart devices alone.

The release of Twitter app for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is an excellent example for such an mobile application. This is not the first app to be released exclusively for Samsung. Similar apps that are meant for Samsung alone are Quickflix and Foxtel Go. These two apps are the exclusive releases for the country Australia. Yet another Samsung exclusive app is the Flipboard that has become popular for the past few years.

Due to such Samsung exclusive app releases, many users of Samsung smart phones, make it a point to buy Samsung phones alone even if they want to shift to yet another brand. The fear of losing the exclusive apps, make Samsung Smartphone users stick on to the same brand.

Yet another danger with the Twitter app is that there are chances for Twitter to move away from Android tabs to iPad. The Android Tablet environment could be affected due to the lack of such quality apps for tabs. The latest Twitter apps will be able to give a kind of credibility to the Android Ecosystem as there are little apps with as good quality as this one. The reason why Samsung Exclusive apps are considered a danger to the Android ecosystem is because such exclusives can make the users forcefully stick on to the Samsung smart phones, thus causing a major problem to the Android ecosystem.
