Urban dictionary has a phrase for people like you....
On my way to meeting, will answer you later.Honest question now. Why do you choose the iphone above the One X or the SGS3? Is it because it is made by apple or is there some other reason? (Not being funny now, just really want to know)
So back to my off topic point: your post really was one of the dumbest things I've read all day. Now get over it, tomorrow is round 2.
I dig the Youtube app, only problem is the comments aren't ranked by rating, but time.
Safari can crash, especially on iPad 1 and with complex pages, but I still find it to be way ahead of Android browser. Although I've yet to use Chrome on Android.
I've tried Android, it's just not as thoughtfully designed as iOS, nor does it have as good apps. If you think that's stupid, fine. It's just my opinion.
If I had to sink to your level, I'd argue that this is the stupidest thing I've read today:
If you hate your iPad so much, why are you posting from it?I am posting this from my iPad and I can assure you it is the most frustrating piece of tech I have ever owned.
There's no simple answer. I've played with a few Android phones and I liked them. I do prefer the more solid feel of an iphone vs the SGII for instance, just feels more like quality. I actually just like the Apple brand - but it comes from years of using ipods, lately ipads and then my iphone. The products look good and they work. I'm nearing my forties - I don't care for tinkering anymore - and I don't mind paying a premium if I like something. Open source, open system? Meh.
Once you start building a "mobile slash entertainment environment" (for lack of better term) there has to be a very compelling reason to deviate from that - I currently have ipods and docks all over the house, airport express to speakers in braai room, AppleTV front-end to server and ipad - the ipone just slots in perfectly. And everything just works - Airplay, central itunes database, music sharing/rating/syncing etc. etc. etc.
I've also invested heavily in apps, many which are cross platform, but quite a few which are not. My interest in hardware specs has also waned, as long as it is "there or thereabouts". My smartphone usage is all about apps. So if I like the phone physically, happy with the OS and Android offers no compelling app advantage why would I move?
Sure, there are irritating little niggles, but which OS doesn't?
So in short, I'm not a fanboi enough to say I won't ever move to Android, but the advantage would have to be more than marginal. Even shorter, I just like my phone. :-)
That answer by undesign did make mine look stupid.
Although one reads reviews, the negatives are seldom mentioned ... And it was only when I got it did I realise just how average it is.
Camera from the 90s, buggy Newstand (I don't even bother downloading my paid for magazines), horrible email, horrible to load files onto the device, no FaceTime over cellular, no wifi hotspot, Flash IS an issue (although everyone says it , limitation on application file size, Mono sound ... Then the standard no memory card, USB port etc
Can I even save/add PDF files with this? I'm not even sure ... But most likely only with an app, workaround or hack
That said, it was cheap so I can't complain
Now I know the iPad isn't the end-all be-all device, but I've used the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and the interface was not that friendly. I couldn't figure out many functions on my own. The people with the Samsung wanted to get my iPad games and apps like Garageband, but to no avail.
PDF's are like the iPads strongest suit, don't know what you mean about that. It reads PDF's perfectly, when you open a PDF there's a button to save to iBooks.
Mono sound - I think it sounds amazing for the size, personally. I also don't have much issue with email on it.
Newstand does suck. Magazines suck. iTunes, well I like it, but it sucks a LOT on Windows.
Anyway, tablets do have a long way to go, no doubt. I guess it depends on your level of expectation.
The iPad 'interface' is more of an app launcher - a single screen with each icon loaded for an app.
Regarding the PDF : yesterday I needed to send about 4 PDF files to a client. All 4 were in seperate emails. I want to send 1 mail with the 4 documents as opposed to forwarding the seperate mails.
Do I save each to iBooks - and from there attach each PDF to a single mail?
Hope that makes more sense!
EDIT ; An attach button would be fantastic on the device. Press it and the camera roll, iBooks etc can pop up to easily attach what is needed. I needed to Google to learn how to attach a photo - and was horrified to learn I needed to copy/paste from the camera roll! There are plenty that needed to Google to relearn email becauswe its so illogical (especially for a 1st time Apple user using the 'ultimate' gadget)
I don't hate it - but after reviews and reading how fantastic this is, I was disappointed. Not to say its bad - just average
