I hate Apple as much as the next guy, but even my
level of snarky hatred for the proprietary company has succumbed to buying an iPhone. Well, two now actually. (iPhone 3G and iPhone 4- the only ones at their respective times worth getting.)
And I can attest that it pretty much is the de-facto standard of sought-after phone. 'Whether Apple likes it or not'. You then take into account that it has its own, heavily-added-to and constantly running application store
- and there's damn near close to no reason to ignore it.
Android is great and may carryover to many different phone models, but one integral thing is missing with it, and that's universal appeal. iPhone has that, and there's really no doubting it now. I don't think anyone really saw that coming- I sure as hell didn't. It has taken over as a phone model
that is synonymous with and dominant within the industry the way the iPod is with mp3 players. Hell, they practically killed
the phone giants Nokia and Motorola- do we even all realize
that? And what does Android have in the way of selling applications, really? Marketplace? Well, that may be all well and good, but it's too far beneath the public sphere. The Apple App Store, like iTunes, again has also become the de-facto standard. The 'easiest' and 'most-used' tool.
Whether that all is a good or bad thing is debatable- the one surefire thing to know is that iPhone is here to stay. So it wouldn't hurt
to make a mobile editing/grading/mini-fx app for it.
