PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "I just gave the new iPad an Editors' Choice award for large tablets, but frankly it was a foregone conclusion. The iPad doesn't get the award because of its hardware, lovely as the hardware is. It gets the award because its apps are generally better than the apps available for Android tablets." The laptop gap may have been closed, but the tablet gap sure hasn't.

I'd say it's probably more related to time and people spent on the app.
You have a lot more versatility and flexibility on the Android side when making an app, but if your company does both, I guarantee they won't invest the same resources in both apps.

Usually the one that gives you the most "bang for the buck" will get the most resources, and since the iPad is more prevalent, that means the iPad one will be much more polished and have the latest features.

It's the same ol' catch 22 with every OS.
