LOL at ignorant article.. having numerous models doesn't mean fragmentation.The development tools and SDK have been refined and continue to do so and when you build an app you just have to follow the guidelines and they will work fine "AMAZINGLY" with all this "fragmentation".
There are zero problems developing for Android. The only thing we Android developers had to deal with was the SDK Support and considering that now it's 2.3 up to ICS and Google has released an SDK Compatibility Library that makes most, if not all, APIs from ICS available for devices running lower versions of Android OS, I don't see how "amazingly difficult" it is to develop for Android.
I can't stand these uninformed and overhyped articles that are basically trolling without a single clue about the topic in hand. You get hits trolling and talking nonsense about Android fragmentation don't you?
Choice and diversity is great for consumers. Yes, it might be a bit, just a bit, more challenging when creating apps because you have to build them right from the start and take into account that you are developing for millions of different devices but to call Android hardware choices fragmentation is probably the dumbest thing I have heard in a long time.
Who are you people? Have you lived in the last 2 decades on this planet? This Apple supporting and justifying garbage is starting to be beyond ridiculous.
Did window's "fragmentation" hurt Personal Computers? Or the software development shops who built for them? This is the result of an open ecosystem, as opposed to a controlled, closed ecosystem, and if history repeats itself we all know who the winner was/is in PC market share. BS
Tizen Takeover, 16 May 2012Well Masturbalus, Looks like I'm First here.
Anyway, yeah they have some good points there... moreit seems you have won this battle, mr. Tizen. but we will meet again, on the stage of another article and i will have my revenge. muha-ha!
on topic: android got a huge head start on the mobile OS market. Microsoft with WP has a lot of catching up to do. and i hope they will manage to catch up, because i like windows interface.
Tizen Takeover, 16 May 2012Agreed. And you're Having a nice day hopefully.Yes, I'm having a nice day Mr Tizen Takeover. So do you too.
Hey, now this is something interesting. Another reason to thank Android devs for all their effort. Android is not such easy money as iOS.
Tizen Takeover, 16 May 2012Well Masturbalus, Looks like I'm First here. Anyway, yeah they have some good points there... moreIf the Custom UI's were a seperate code instead of a blended code, then updates could still be universal. The only thing people would have to wait on would be the Custom UI updates and I believe that would make alot more people satisfied.
Well Masturbalus, Looks like I'm First here.
Anyway, yeah they have some good points there about fragmentation. I don't necessarily hate fragmentation as it does allow the OEM's to put their own spin to the OS, it just when Fragmentation affects updates is where it becomes a nuisance.
