A few hours back I got my first iPhone 4 after having bought an Android phone, the Samsung 5510, just a month back. With all certainty I can say that the Android doesn’t come anywhere close to iOS and the applications on it just yet.
Weirdly enough I never got Google Maps running properly without crashing every 15 minutes while I was trying to navigate using Android! And as most would agree, an app crash is a rare occurrence on the iPhone (unless the app is badly written).
I would love to get back to writing applications for the iPhone and the iPad as now I own both 🙂 Anyone got any cool app ideas?
Are you one of those who is wondering why all of a sudden every software has a Web Installer (a small executable that downloads rest of the stuff) instead of a traditional setup.exe which used to the sole file you needed to install a software? The reason is, a web installer is a smart tool that assess how many components are already installed, and based on that downloads only the stuff that you actually need. This reduces download size from say 500 MB to just 100 MB if you already have most of the dependencies installed.
(I knew this for a while but recently happened to program one such installer and was admiring the beauty of this simple idea)
