Lollipop is now on over 5% of devices, but KitKat is still the tastiest Android version

Android lollipop

Like clockwork (or an Apple Watch), Google releases its monthly Android distribution list for developers, and media people, to obsess over.

This month, Lollipop has finally risen above the 5% mark, hitting 5.4% between 5.0 and 5.1. KitKat still has a slightly larger presence, at 41.4%, than Jelly Bean cumulatively which, between the three versions, has 40.7%.

Gingerbread is slowly dying, thank goodness, but retains a stubborn 6.4%, while Ice Cream Sandwich, which many developers are seeing as just as big a problem as Gingerbread, is holding steady at 5.7%.

Compared to last month, Lollipop is up an impressive 2.1%, while KitKat rose a scant 0.5%.
