Since its inception, Whereoscope has been an iPhone-only shop. The genesis of this iPhone-fetishism goes all the way back to the very first iPhone: in a way, it was the potential that device tantalizingly dangled before us that pushed Mick and myself to pick up our shovels and give this whole entrepreneur thing a go. I still believe that the iPhone is a truly paradigm shifting device; that by releasing it, Apple fundamentally and irrevocably changed the course of computing. But as the song goes, “the times they are a changin’.” Android has made considerable gains on iPhone in terms of functionality, polish and mind-share. The time had come for us to put aside our prejudices, and actually put together an app to see what would happen. What could possibly go wrong?!
A nice overview of the differences between development on Android vs. iOS.
