So I caved and got an iPad 3 yesterday afternoon. As most know I love my Android stuff. I was keen to get an iPad 3 because of all the hype around it so eventually caved.
The hardware is excellent. Cannot at all fault it. The screen is simply wow. But... it ends there for me. iOS blows. I am struggling to enjoy it. Being such a long time Android user I am struggling to like iOS. I feel like I have been put in a little box with little room to move.
First thing that really got me was the inability to purchase games. What a let down.
Someone at the office jail broke it and installed Installous and some other app which now gives me a range of games to choose from but it is pirating. On Android I purchase all my software and have around a hundred purchased apps. I understand the reason why we don't get paid games in SA, and know you can do some iTunes USA hack to be able to pay. Why should I though... I paid a *** load for this tablet, but now I must either steal games or find a work around to buy them. WTF! And people punt this technology!
Widgets... where are my Widgets Are there any DreamBoard themes that enable me to use Widgets? I miss my weather, pulse, FB, etc... right on my screen.
Anyway... I feel like I have bought into a half baked technology that I have to find workarounds to fully use. I don't like it.
Early this evening I was about to place an ad to sell it, or trade for a quad core android tablet. I decided to not be hasty and ask you guys in the know what I may be doing wrong. What am I missing? I don't want to get rid of it to later find I was doing things wrong and could have actually enjoyed it.
Please guys... convince me. Such an awesome piece of hardware. What can I do to fill the void that iOS is? I am a n00b on iOS and MUST be missing something?
