Android 4.4 Katkat release date this October 21 ?

We all know that it all started with 15th October which was expected to be the release date of Android 4.4 ,then it was expected on 18th October.Then a new rumor spread that it will launch on October 28th.

Android 4.4 release date

But, there was another theory that the KitKat clues may have been pointing towards Monday October 21st, but that theory has hit a dead end.

Rather than digging in as deep as the first theory, this one is much more simple: the KitKat Twitter posts could be a simple countdown. On October 14th, KitKat posted a 007 picture for Roger Moore's 86th birthday. On the 15th, it was a picture of the KitKat bugdroid made up of 6 KitKat pieces (not counting head and feet). Yesterday, it was the "This is it" post, where the "S" in "this" and "is" look like they could also be stylized number 5s (this is the biggest leap for us). And today, it was a post saying "The future of confectionery has arrived" with a picture of a 4-bar KitKat with the number 4.4 next to it. 

As you can see, there looks like a simple countdown happening. If true, we should see a post that references the number 3 tomorrow, then 2 on Saturday, 1 on Sunday, and that would put the end of the countdown on Monday October 21st. The theory is that Google might release Android 4.4 on Monday.

Galaxy Note 3 Features soon To be in Note II

If you are a Note 2 user and wished that your device could also support some feature like in Note 3 consist.Well your wish is gonna fulfilled soon

Note 2 Android 4.3 feature
Air Command Note 2

Some of those features should arrive on the Note II with the Android 4.3 update, but if you’re unwilling to wait and are okay with flashing custom ROMs, then you can get some of those software features right away.
A team of XDA developers have ported over some of the Note 3 features, such as Air Command, S Note, Sketchbook, S Planner, gallery, and more, to the Note II, by adding the necessary files to the pre-release Android 4.3 firmware that leaked for the device. These features are working well for the most part, though a few minor issues persist, such as the one hand operation feature working only for a few apps, Air View appearing twice in the settings, but these should be ironed out in the future with a few updates.
Do take necessary steps before installation of Rom.

Android 4.4 Kitkat To arrive on October 18

When everyone is waiting For the release of the upcoming OS version Android 4.4 Kitkat ,it looks like it's gonna be arrive on This 18th October.

Android 4.4 kitkat

This new date comes from a post over at the official KitKat Google+ page, with a rather ambiguous “Everybody dance now” message. If we allow our imaginations to wander a little, this could be a reference to the hit single of the same title made by the American dance group C+C Music Factory. That song had a length of 4 minutes and 4 seconds, the same double 4 of the upcoming Android version. The song was released on October 18, 1990, which leads us to believe that Google has chosen that date to also make its own release.

Few days ago a leaked image showing Nexus 5 running on Kitkat OS spells the features and look of Android 4.4 but still the picture is unclear.

New features in Android 4.4 :

 A new Downloads app, to improved Location settings. Even Google officially chimed in on the Android 4.4 changes when it advised developers to update how their third-party SMS apps work, introducing a new default SMS behavior to the platform. We’ve also been flooded with sneak peeks which leave very little to the imagination as to what the interface will look like.
