Google has released the version distribution numbers for December 2013, and things are just about what anyone following along would expect.
Kit Kat gets a small bump of .3 percent since November, Jelly Bean gets a big boost — up from 54.5 percent — and Gingerbread continues to decline, losing about 3 percent since that last chart. The good news is that legacy versions — anything older than Jelly Bean — are just under a quarter of the total at 22. percent.
This means that more than 75 percent of the devices out there can run all those great apps that require Android 4 or higher. Android’s open nature means one version will never fill the pie chart, but from an application developer standpoint, things are looking good.
