MIUI (which stands for MI User Interface and pronounced "Me You I"[citation needed], a play on the common abbreviation of the words user interface as UI), developed by Xiaomi, is an aftermarket firmware for cell phones based on the open-source Android operating system. It features a heavily-modified user interface that does away with the Android app drawer and has drawn comparisons with Apple's iOS.[citation needed] It includes additional functionality not found in stock Android, including toggles on the notification pull-down, new music, gallery, and camera apps, and an altered phone dialer that displays matching contacts as a user enters a number.[citation needed]

Development Edit

MIUI is based on Android 2.3.7 and CyanogenMod 7.1 sources, and was initially developed in the Chinese language by Chinese startup Xiaomi. Xiaomi added a number of apps to enhance the basic framework; those include MITalk (a Blackberry Messenger clone), MINotes, MIBackup, MIMusic, and MIGallery.[citation needed]

Updates Edit

Updates are usually provided over-the-air every Friday.[citation needed] MIUI is then translated and ported in unofficial versions to other languages by independent developers. The list of translations can be found on MIUI official site.[citation needed]
