KitKat's ascension in the Android market continues as version 4.4 of Google's mobile platform spreads itself to even more devices. Market figures that show Android usage figures for the first week of August reveal that Android 4.4 KitKat now accounts for 20.9% of all devices running the platform, including tablets, smartphones, and more.The 4.4 version is now comfortably the second most used Android number and has risen by 3% from the 17.9% of the market it took in July. That is a healthy jump and even though Android L is due to land in the fall we expect KitKat's rise to continue into next year. Of course, Android 4.4 was released to unify the market more, something the L release will strive to do on a grander scale with Android One.
