PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Exactly six months ago, Eric Schmidt made a remark that in the near future, developers might want to focus on Android first, instead of iOS. While developers haven't moved to Android-first, iOS-later en masse, there's no denying that we're seeing more and more former iOS exclusives move towards Android.

There are literally 10 articles stating the opposite, for every one article supporting your position.

Android development is mildly frustrating.

Edit:

Reading that article, he takes a lot of my points, and tries to spin them in a positive light. Things like "get a device" the emulator was terrible, is exactly what I was saying.

The fact that compat libs exist, the fact that you need to actively canvas your userbase to make sure you're covering their devices (and even then, you're not hitting 100% coverage) is an annoyance.
