Android is one of the world’s most popular mobile operating systems that runs on smartphones, tablets and now even convertible laptops. Even though Google technically owns Android, it is also open source and based on the Linux kernel. Android being open source means that other developers can modify the code—we see this happen all the time with custom ROMs.

The Android category section on Tech Chomps provides lots of tips and tricks for the Android operating system and its applications. The Android how-to’s available in this category can be about how to do tasks with the existing operating system or how to do them with the help of applications from the Google Play Store.
