Woz thinks Android is more functional than iOS
Woz, a known Android fan, thinks the Android OS is more functional than iOS in many ways. Even though an iPhone is his primary device he still wishes his iPhone would perform some of the tasks his Android devices do.
“if you’re willing to do the work to understand it a little bit, well I hate to say it, but there’s more available in some ways...
I agree with his statement even though I'm strictly an iOS user. I still manage to find a reason to jailbreak when Apple decides to omit the features that I want. Not only is feature set an on-going issue for Apple but the fact that iOS is exclusive to Apple. Android being open source to the end user is arguable as well. It's open to the manufacturers and carriers, not the user. Android is still available for licensing to all manufacturers while Apple is the only company with rights to distribute iOS.
Woz also said he thinks Apple's approval process for apps slows developers down compared to Android's model. He was a long time user of Siri until Apple purchased it. He claims it doesn't work as well as it did when it was an independent application.
Do you think Apple's strict curation of the App Store and need for control is what pushes users towards Android?
