to be fair. Spiegel online is maybe not the writer. They have (maybe) a service they provide "apps" thats all. I guess it is a multiplatform framework. I can't see another reason why somebody is sooo stupid.
the good ratings: a good iOS app is a good app. The iOS usecases are not stupid and since we have a back button at the top it is difficult to know what is iOS and what is android. I know the difference exactly. And it is a huge difference.
performance, up and down scaling for tablets, the tablet future. Native android design is stronger and better and very beautiful on many devices if you can design it. Down compatibility is also possible.
my recommendation for +SPIEGEL ONLINE
is to change it because it's cheaper and the ratings are 5 stars, not 4. and you can provide very easy with a little bit intellegent layout a beautiful android tablet app. Yes i know in hamburg everyone have an Ipad but Hamburg is small. and at least, its a shame.
it's a good example to tell the american colleagues why i have to leave germany. Up to date mobile business is not possible. they are any time 2 years late.
