There is no way to live like an Android user on iOS and vice versa. But you can certainly try. With my recent journey of hopping back and forth between iPhone and Android phones, I thought it might be fun to try out some of the “hacks” that exist for people who want to take a dip in a different kind of pool.

I looked up some popular ways people attempt to mimic iOS on Android and then tried out some tips that iOS users give one another to get more Google on their operating system. It’s not the same. Even the most dedicated developer attempting to bring the iOS experience to Android can’t recreate the reasons why Apple users use Apple products. And even though so much of Google’s ecosystem is open to iPhone users, it’s never the same experience as it is on Android.
