After years of putting up with the archaic (but logical at least,) Blackberry UI on my work phone I’ve now got a new one. Unfortunately it’s a Motorola Moto G running Android 4.4.2.
Now admittedly I haven’t been anywhere near Android since Froyo (and that had HTC Sense UI rather than vanilla,) but either the Android UI has got drastically worse or I’m spoilt by my personal phone running Windows Phone 8. Androids main advantage is the huge amount of Apps so I’m hoping some of you have some suggestions for replacing the awful defaults, so far I’ve found one called Textra to replace the standard text App but need help with the following:
- A Contacts app capable of syncing contacts with Exchange.
- A decent keyboard, is Swype still any good?
- Anything that may improve the general usability of the UI
- Any other apps you think might be useful.
This is a work phone so it doesn’t need to play Angry Birds and I don’t use Facebook but I’m surprised it can’t even get basic stuff like contact syncing done right.
