Seriously, I have been told that you guys have more Android people working on the platform than iOS (true?)
Why is Android so broken compared to iOS and everything available on iOS is listed as soon on Android?
As far as I can confirm, the following items are/were broken on Android compared to iOS:
-Presence for some… Me included, it just isn’t reliable. Some days it works, some days it doesn’t, no settings change on my phone.
-CarouselTile on Android doesn’t show past images, breaks camera functionality
-Charting doesn’t work on Android, works fine on iOS. (New charting methods in the works?)
-Shake to show names in things doesn’t show last row of names (FIXED)
-Unable to remove a value from device tile setting and reset it back to NULL (FIXED)
-Can’t move a tile to end of the list of things, it falls back to original spot.
-Dragged tile positions in things just are lost, randomly resets, just reorders without reason
-Almost impossible to click and resize geofence area on map. (took me 20 tap and holds to get it to resize)
I just wish that we would see parity on Android and not release notes that say, new features, just not for Android, coming soon…
“When you create three rows in the Dashboard, you’ll see a quick tip about re-ordering them (to remove it, simply long press any row, drag, and drop). –iOS only, Android forthcoming”
“As needed, you are now able to pull down to refresh the Dashboard. –iOS only, Android forthcoming”
Just venting, but seriously, ST buy some Nexus 5’s for your developers, or CEO, make them live the pain that us Android users have to as second class citizens with superior hardware.
Android devices make up over 70% of smartphones on the market, over 50% of web / mobile traffic.
iPhones only account for the same 20% they have had since 2009. iOS on iPhones is NOT a growing market segment. It is a saturated segment.
Also, cost per device winner is clearly Android at 215 per device where iPhone is 600+…
You are selling a product to people who can’t afford the high end, but support high end phones over lower end. It doesn’t make sense…
So please, please, get the Android version up to par with iOS and then lead with Android.
