Android’s newest release, KitKat, brought several new features to the table for developers to take advantage of. Unlike on iOS, Android developers aren’t as quick to update their since most devices won’t get the update for several months. Android 4.4 KitKat has been out since late October and it only holds less than 2% of Android’s market share.

Some developers however do take the time to use the new features provided in Android updates in their apps. Many of those apps are included in the list below. If I’ve missed any feel free to leave them in the comment section!
