"Google native apps I use all the time, like Google Inbox and Gmail, Keep, Google Drive and Google Now suffered on the iPhone and sometimes didn’t work at all. I missed the level of personalization I had on Android, some of it so basic that I was surprised to find out it was lacking on the iPhone. One such example was that on Android I am able to move my folders however I want on the screen, where it is much more comfortable to press with my thumb. Another example is the back button for the iPhone, which is often on the top left, far away from reach, where on Android it’s at the bottom where I can access it. Important widgets, like calendar and weather information, are lacking, and even though available from the notification pan on the iPhone, they leave much to be desired, compared to the different screens I have on the Android."

The Cupertino company has a long history of striking out at competitors who have similar features in their products, even if the concepts involved are obvious or were pioneered by someone other than Apple.
