- I was told by someone, whose opinion has proved tight in the past, that my nexus 7 was mostly better spec than the iPad. The 8GB was not as good but as all my musig lives "in the cloud"that doesn't really matter.
This was before the iPad Mini came out. I don't recall hearing that it was significantly better than its sibling.
Apps are a matter of a market positive-feedback loop. As more people use Android and the Apple market share drops, more writers will do their apps on the non-Apple platform. This in turn will increase the move. If the app you want is only available on Apples shrinking market share let the writers know that they aer costing you time. money etc.Nov 20, 2012
- App Store just released the 1 millionth app. Android users are generally cheapos, want everything for free. Not everyone, but the majority. Why would app developers, who want to earn money, waste their resource on Android? Especially small startups will definitely bet on Apple. This will only increase through time.Nov 20, 2012
- Very good point Mr Novak. A friend of mine who has galaxy S2 refuses to pay for any apps. I have no problem paying for quality apps on Apple. If a top selling android game costs even less than $1 he won't buy it. I paid £23 for Korg iMS-20 synth on iPad because it's a seriously good music tool. I'm sure android has some great apps but not sure the quality is there to the same degree I see at Apple.Nov 20, 2012
- I admit, I started as a cheapo. But seriously, my first android experience was with a Motorola Clix XT, gag! I wouldn't have paid for an app to go on that phone. However, ever since I waited, budgeted my monies, and got some Unfragmented Non-Carrier hardware - software combo (Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 10), I'm more than willing to shell out a little more for the quality content on a quality hardware platform. N.O.V.A 3 works on both my phone and tablet. I'ts also runs insanely smooth on the Nexus 10, like a full price $20 PC game. Google Earth is ridiculously smooth and stable too. Google Maps looks gorgeous. I'm really confident that Nexus 10 is going to be the beach-head marking the beginning of the end of Apple's dominant Tablet Market share. (It's also passed the wife test, my wife played Angry Birds Starwars all afternoon and this morning when I got home yesterday).Nov 20, 2012
- Ultimately I will go with whatever platform gives me what I need. I certainly wouldn't rule out a change to android if it has the music apps. I tried Nova 2 on iPad but I prefer mouse and keys for my FPS so I'd stick to PC for that. Arc Squadron is a lot of fun though. Perhaps that's on android too?Nov 20, 2012
- Just checked, no Arc Squadron yet. Funny...they have the OST available in Music.Nov 20, 2012
