Android 6.0 to be named Milkshake, Muffin or Marshmallow?

Almost everybody expected Android 4.4 to be called ‘Key Lime Pie’ to be in mouth watering alphabetical sequence of world’s most popular smartphone OS. There were also rumours that next release of Android will be named ‘Kaju Katli’, which is most sought after Indian sweet, but Google named it Kitkat. Next and latest was ‘Lollipop’. Here’s mouth watering alphabetical sequence that Google followed-

Cupcake (1.5)
Donut (1.6)
Eclair (2.0-2.1)
Froyo (2.2-2.3)
Gingerbread (2.3-2.3.7)
Honeycomb (3.0-3.2)
Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0-4.0.2)
Jelly Bean (4.1-4.2.2)
Kitkat (4.4)
Lollipop (5.0+)
Milkshake? (Next release)

What will Android M be called? ‘Milkshake’, ‘Muffin’ or ‘Marshmallow’? Comment your point of view.

So here is quick tutorial on Adobe’s new PhoneGap build. Lets count least number of steps it takes to build an App using PhoneGap-

  1. Go to PhoneGap build an sign in to your account. I am using my GIT credentials.

  4. To create custom build for iOS you will need to upload and select your key from menu. To do that, click on App from main menu, click on builds and select key from the dropdown. If you have not added a key yet, you will need to add it manually.

So that’s it, 4 simple steps to build apps using PhoneGap. Please don’t forget to add config.xml in your app. As PhoneGap says, ‘Make your life easier by including config.xml in your project’. Do post your comments for any queries.
