Samsung’s iTest App Helps iPhone Users Tryout Android On Their Devices
In a way to make lure iPhone owners to the Android ecosystem, Samsung has launched iTest, an interactive web app designed to help iOS users test Android on their devices. To do this, they will have to install a web application from the site; which will allow them to try out a lite-version of One UI based on Android.
When a user opens the app, it launches a simulated Galaxy smartphone home screen with a number of applications and settings. You have access to the Galaxy Store, you can install themes, open the app drawer and access them. The user will receive a simulated dialer, which will tell about the functions of the Galaxy and open a series of messages. In addition, the user will be able to read the camera manual from the company and photographer Logan Dodds, who will talk about the possibilities of photography.
As you navigate through the interface, a series of guides appear, explaining any unavailable features, and you can also browse the Galaxy Wearable app with all Samsung accessories. The Gallery app provides photos, tutorials for Samsung Kids and Samsung Health apps, and the Settings app lets you learn about some of the setup options available.
At the moment, iTest is part of a promotion in New Zealand; but this does not prevent anyone who owns Apple smartphones; starting with the iPhone 7, from going to the site and installing the web application.
