Motorola Droid : Android Apps Vs IPhone Apps

Nov 16, 2009

I know the "cool kid in school" thing to do is make fun of the iPhone market for having 1,000's of 'Fart apps'

But let's be honest at the end of the day it's really not true, and now coming from being a previous iPhone owner and now a Droid owner i can honestly say, the iPhone app market wins by a TON.

This is just a general QUALITY of apps comparison as well.

NO i'm not switching back... but man do i miss the iPhone apps...

Especially facebook.. and others..

You can REALLY tell the difference between the quality of iPhone apps vs Android,

So why am i starting this thread?.. Well i'm hoping maybe a developer could chime in and enlighten us on why this is...

Things i'm curious about-

Is programming in android worse then in the iPhone OS? is that why apps are WAY less in quality?

And you can't give the excuse that it's because things are new, when the iPhone market came out the apps were quality at day 1, many of them were.

So what's the difference? i guess software...

Well i'm sticking with android even though this exists.. in hopes that maybe future Android OS updates and SDK's will improve this very obvious difference.. right now i'm not impressed at all... the apps are all Slow, and they look horrible.

And for twitter? holy crap... iPhone owners back me up here, but the iPhone twitter apps are lightyears ahead of android twitter apps.

Just take a look at Tweetdeck for iPhone, and compare to to what i guess is the best android twitter app, twidroid?

Compare those and you'll see what i'm talking about.

I have friends that have iphones and I was wondering if there are any other apps that are compatible with eachother, only one I know of is "bump". I'm not talking about apps that are both available for each, but apps where you can play games with eachother, GPS locators ect.

Android :: Droid Apps Suck Compared To IPhone

Jul 17, 2010

Have somewhat limited exposure but what I do have on Android Apps is not positive.The Apple Apps store is far superior to what you get with AppBrain and Market.The Android Apps always give a very vague and sketchy description, next to impossible to get details of what it does.I bought Bettercut and Cashbook - Expense Tracker, both sucked in a big way.Already uninstalled both.The open architecture of Android is a great concept and I love my DroidX.I hope the apps come along soon to make the whole thing complete.

Android :: Apps - Iphone Multiplayer

Aug 12, 2010

I know of Skies of Glory, but how many apps do you guys know of that you can play your iphone friends in. I know there arent many. But i think there are 2 or 3 that you really have to look for but they just arent coming to mind aside from SoG.

Believe it or not, i still have 1 or 2 friends that havent converted to the evo and are still using that old iphone thing. Would love to kill em in words with friends but i know thats not for android (yet).

HTC Hero :: IPhone Cant Run Simultaneous Apps

Oct 19, 2009

I just wanted to check, e.g. on my Hero I can run GPS Tracker and press home and it will run in the background, play some music and press home and it will run in the background and go and do something else.

Are you saying the iPhone would have to completely exit the GPS Tracker to use another app or leave the GPS Tracker open and not do anything else for it to work?

May 21, 2010

Is anyone aware of a listing of apps that require Android 2.1 to run (e.g. apps like Google Goggles, etc.)? I've searched the threads here at Android Forums and elsewhere and haven't been able to find such a list or site.

Now that I upgraded to 2.1, I'd like to "see what I've been missing" and take advantage of the new OS.

HTC Droid Eris : Apps Opening By Themselves - Can These Apps Be Stopped So They Don't Take Up Memory

May 18, 2010

Hope you guys can help. Since the 2.1 update I have certain apps which appear to be opening in the background when I didn't open them. I have Advanced Task Killer, and when I go in for example it shows Messages running, when I kill it, it will reappear in 30 secs or so, the same with MP3 store. Can these apps be stopped so they don't take up memory or what's the deal here. Thanks for any help.

Android :: IPhone Or Android Apps That Use SMS Based Authentication?

Jun 1, 2010

What are some iPhone or Android applications that use SMS as their primary means of user authentication?I'm interested to see such apps in action. SMS-auth seems like a natural approach that is well-situated to mobile contexts.

The basic workflow is: to sign up,a user provides a phone number; the app calls a backend webservice which generates a signed URL and sends it to the phone number via an SMS gateway; the user receives the SMS, clicks the link, and is thus verified and logged in. This results in a very strong user identity that is difficult to spoof yet fairly easy. It can be paired with a username or additional account attributes as needed for the product requirements.Despite the advantages, this does not seem to be in much use - hence my question. My initial assumption is that this is because products and users are wary of asking for / providing phone numbers, which users consider sensitive information. That said, I hope this becomes an increasingly more commonplace approach.

Android :: Tell Developers Want Apps On IPhone For Android

Feb 19, 2010

Some of the developers of iPhone apps seem to be a little complacent with developing counterpart apps for the Android Market. Maybe if we inundate them with requests and show them how high the demand is, they'll get off of their keysters and start with the Android development. To make this easier for us all, I've compiled a list of some of the most popular iPhone apps that don't have an Android version yet, along with the email addresses, twitter accounts, and 'contact us' sites that you can all use to contact the developers to simply say "We want an Android app!" Just like money, demand talks. Plus, every new app we get (or at least get someone to get started on) is one less thing the Apple fan boys can brag about!

Please feel free to add any apps you would want to see (like IMDB for instance).Make sure you include the corresponding contact info. I'm hoping the Moderators will make this a sticky thread.As I was developing this list, I was going to include eBay, since they did not have an official Android app...that is until I saw it in the Market a couple days ago! The apps are coming, we just have to keep pressing people for them.

Motorola Droid X : Way To Install Apps From Other Android Phones?

Wouldn't their backup have some stuff we don't, (like the cool weather app that shows rain drops on their screen and a windshield wiper that wipes it clean), that could be installed on our phones?
