Despite having the same (and amazing) notification system from the start, Google has only been granted patents for it last month. I guess Samsung jumped at the chance, because they are now suing Apple in South Korea over Notification Center. Notification Center is Apple’s new notification system, introduced in 2011 in the software update iOS5, many have said it is a direct ripoff of the Android system. I would agree, to be honest.
There is no other information available on the lawsuit at the moment, but we’re excited to see how this turns out. The Notification Center is something that’s hard to prove unique, though we aren’t sure if it would be similar enough to win a lawsuit. But it’ll make for a good drama indeed. What do you guys think? Did Apple rip off Android notifications? And do they deserve to be sued for it? Tell us in the comments!
