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.

Doesn't ability to return an app up to 15 minutes after purchase and comment system solves these issues mostly?

As I replied to another person:

Atleast on Android Market the thing is way too easy to game, and it's not possible to comment on something without first installing/buying it, meaning that I can't for example warn people against buying a crap app that has very strong smell of malware in it unless I actually buy it myself, first.

That basically means that only gullible people leave comments on those and don't notice the things the app does behind their backs and thus the app still gets positive comments.

This also means that it usually takes several hours to a few weeks for these people to notice there is something wrong and they often do not know what it is that causes this so they are unable to connect it to the latest "real life sexy girls on your wallpaper" - app.
