Google launches a Tips and Tricks website to help you find your way around Android better
These days, the argument of “which is better” between Android and iOS is a pretty superfluous. Both systems can be fast, snappy, stable, and an absolute delight to use – it's all about what one prefers, and, in many cases – what one is familiar with. Smartphone operating systems may look similar, and even bear some resemblances to their PC counterparts, but they do have their own intricacies, which may seem a bit overwhelming for newcomers.

Apple battles this “information fatigue” by greeting the user with a tips and tricks app when they launch their brand new iPhone. It quickly orients the person around iOS and sends them on their merry way, occasionally popping up again to notify us of new features. Google now has an answer of its own, but it's not in the form of an app, or at least – not yet.

Android.com now has a Tips and Tricks section, which will walk the user through all of Android's core features. The mini-tutorials are divided in categories – Security, Voice, Photo, Battery, Customization, Apps, and Settings, holding a grand total of 53 tips among them. These will teach you how to toggle your location settings, back up your photos, protect your phone's data in the case of loss or theft, what types of voice commands you can issue, and what customization options vanilla Android saves.

So, if a buddy of yours recently made the jump from iPhone to Android – you can send them to this website for a quick knowledge boost.
