Android In June of last year, I finally decided to commit to an Android device. I had carried every flagship iPhone up through that point from the original iPhone to the 5S. To the world around me, I heaped the praise into a life transforming device, but in my tech circles, and on my blog, I frequently posted about my frustration, mostly with shackles and intentional limitations imposed. So last year, why I decided to make the jump to Android. I outlined 10 reasons why I was finally ready to make the jump to Android’s 4.4 release, KitKat. A year has passed. It's time to revisit my original assertions and complaints with some follow up and see where I stand one year later.

I could never use an OS that I couldn't run apps in the background. I use a terminal app to login into my servers at home and and at work, if I start a compile job I don't want to haven to stare at it's progress. In iOS, the terminal apps connections are lost every time I navigate away from it for a small period of time.


Install tmux on the "server" and run all your sessions through that. Then it won't matter if your connection is terminated, as the session is still running on the server. A must-have, even for normal PC-to-PC SSH connections.
