I’m obsessed with iOS and Android cross-platform development. As the two dominant mobile operating systems, I love knowing them, understanding them and understand why users select one over the other.
Which is best? Well, that’s not for me to say. I admit that I am an Android user and although I own an iPhone, I don’t see myself using it on a daily basis. Once you get used to one, it’s dificult to go to the other; and that’s by design. Think about it, if they both were the same, then how can they establish differientiators?
Today I came across a post that has been very popular this week. The title is “Android is better“. Catchy title right? Paul Stamatiou, a designer at Twitter (@stammy) shares his opinion of why Android is better.
He thoroughly examines most of the differences between iOS and Android, and I have to say that I agree with his point of view. Extra points for being a desinger and selecting Andorid as your operating system of choice.
Update: Paul Stamatiou mentions Marco Arment on his blog posts; Marco wrote back with his own opinion on this topic, which is in a way, more in line with my own views.
