    I'm on CF.Net, Lampstand Forums, Apple Forums, iPad Forums and iPhone Forums. Lampstand Forums are kind of dead, very low traffic, and I'm going to remove that forum from my Tapatalk.

    I'm not sure how the Android version of Tapatalk is laid out, but there should be a Search or "Add forums" option. There you can enter a term such as "Android" and it will return a list of forums for that category. I'll bet you can find dozens of Android forums that support the Tapatalk plugin.

    Yeah, I've seen that function already but haven't really added any other forums besides CF.net yet, will try and see if they got some other good forums out there for stuff I like! Lampstand forums? What would that even be about? Lampstands? Hahaha.

    Lampstand is a Christian forum, but it's pretty much dead.

    There are tons of them, but I believe we've already found the best one ;)

    Boy, oh, boy, from an android developer to all those apples. How you have fallen... :shame

    I'm kidding for your sake, but I just couldn't do it. Two of the 5 phones in our family plan at iPhones, and 3 of us have Galaxy 3's. Whenever I have to use my wife's iPhone, I feel like I'm looking at a 1980's prototype of a cell phone. It's just so small! I don't know how someone can deal with an iPhone screen after having something bigger. And I just hate how everything has to go through Apple's filter before it's available to the user.

    I'm very surprised that Apple hasn't brought a larger screen device to market. It seems that could lure a lot of customers away from android. Not me, but a lot of them. :shrug

    One big thing Apple's lacking, is innovative things. The only things they have been doing diffently is the performance (obviously) and add a cm to the screen, but still not making it a big screen. Also their prices are very overpriced in my opinion, for half their price you get one of the best Android phones out there currently. :o

    The thing that turned me off of Android is Google's cavalier attitude toward the Android UI. Anyone remember Froyo? It was a bright and cheery UI that was easy to read with gradients and colors - I started my Android journey on the htc G1 a few days after it was released. The next revision, Gingerbread, made a complete switch to a dark and dreary UI with two colors. Then Honeycomb came along and brought with it changes that moved some of the screen elements to new locations.

    One of the things you never want to do is to force your users to stop what they're doing and learn a new user interface.. or force your developers to stop what they're doing and learn a new API. Testing my apps on 30 or so different devices had become more than I was willing to bear and I had enough.

    I've been studying iOS and OS X and will soon sign up for an Apple developer account and begin creating apps for those platforms. There's much to be said for one company controlling both the hardware and the software.

    PREACH IT!!!! And they have a death grip on those prices! Almighty Apple says what Best Buy or Mike's Electronics sells them for. It's like shopping for a pair of blue jeans in the old Soviet Union. And yet, the masses wait in line for the privilege to pay their price.

    Yeah it's terrible.

    "Wireless carriers know they can either offer their customers the iPhone, or see them leave for a company that does. Apple knows this too, so they force the carriers to sell the iPhone for $200 after selling it to them for $580 (a $380 loss). The providers’ are forced to make up the difference by raising rates on your text, calling and data. Verizon recently eliminated unlimited data and charges heavily for overages, and AT&T increased data prices by $5 per month." This is just terrible.

    It isn't just the screen size. The Apple devices (iPhones, iPad's etc) just lack features and flexibility, but charge a premium price. I ditched it earlier this year and couldn't be happier on Android.

    I'm going the other way with computers though. I really like what I see in the MacBooks, and I am getting more and more frustrated with Windows with every passing day. :grumpy

    I'm not quite sure how this thread became an Android vs. iOS thread. If this is my fault please accept my apologies.

    I don't mind about it, as far as I know there isn't really an Android versus iOS thread. :tongue

    Tried flashing a custom recovery on my phone yesterday so I could install a custom ROM, bricked my phone, but after 2 hours I finally got it fixed and then started all over again but a different way which was way easier and safer, so now I'm really happy because I am running Android 4.2.2 while I was running Android 2.2 before, wow 4.2.2 has SO MUCH new things in it! It's unbelievable. Very surprised that it runs completely smooth as well! :biggrin
