Learned a number of things from porting an app from Windows Phone to Android. App stability is a lot harder to manage in Android than Windows Phone due to how activity versus page life cycle works which explains why I've seen more hangs/crashes on my Moto X versus my Lumia 820.

Facebook integration is a lot better on Android as is the push notification story from an end user and developer perspective.

Permissions in Android also are another minefield since even the most innocent sounding features like using a contact picker, saving to SD card or push notifications are communicated to users in fairly scary terms.

Also found at least one down side of using Xamarin is you don't seem to get crash reports in Google Play or Flurry which is a huge downside. Looking for a workaround.

All of these learnings were informed by usage so thanks to everyone who kicked tires on both versions of the app

Some thoughts on recent announcements by Amazon & Google about their forays into autonomous robots.

How about a combination of the two?  Imagine ordering a package that a drone in a massive factory carries to drop off to an automated semi-truck.  That semi-truck drives itself to an airport, where a fully automated cargo plane carries it to another location, where it's put into an automated delivery truck, which uses these small drones to automatically drop it off on the front step of someone (which bypasses a lot of the issues of walking or rolling robots dealing with stairs and such.)

The bigger question then becomes, in an environment when there are already more workers than jobs, what do we do with all the people eliminated from working on these things?

Being on vacation means I can spend my morning jotting down some thoughts on how to avoid user revolts when redesigning your app or operating system. :)

You missed the most important one: listen to your users. It is one the PlayStation teams very much took to heart with PS4 to very good result after having entirely ignored the rule with PS3.

For once you could blog about the good thing   #microsoft   is doing instead of always talking about #google

The incredible pettiness of Google on the Youtube #WP8 app is mind blowing. Another example of giving up the pretense

My bad, although my childish rant is based on a decade of on-the-job IE-induced stress. :)
