I've tried it so many times I can't remember how many and as much as I wish I liked it, I really don't.
It doesn't pull full article text, the UI is unbearably unintuitive, and the built in browser feels like a throwback to 2008, slow, buggy, terrible zoom function. Flipboard just always seemed half baked to me. Every time I use it, I feel like it was thrown together by a couple 15 year olds that were drunk one evening.

Looks great guys! The old look was definitely dated, this is much improved.
Great work Kyle.

I'm a fan of both! I've used iOS and Android side by side every day for 5 years. I do like Android better because it is a much more capable OS, but both have their strong points.
That being said, I did download and try this on my Nexus 4, it's a great app, works flawlessly, but with the shortcut toggles already in the notification shade on Android, its kind of pointless. I had it for a few hours, and it did nothing that Android didn't already do, so I uninstalled. If you have an older Android version or a less than functional skin, this is a pretty neat idea, I liked it a lot, just didn't see the point when running JellyBean.

I would start with Android, but take the new scheduled multi-tasking from iOS7 (depending how well it works). I'd also like the iPhone's storage options, a 64gb phone would be VERY nice. I think that's about it. Customizability, app quality, design, inter-app communication, file management, ease of use...are all better on the Android platform. As far as physical design, I'd like a cross between the iPhone 5 and HTC One's build quality with the Nexus 4's asthetics.

@MatteoRodrigo @jpb Not Always for free. I've had iPod Touch's for years and when iOS 4 came out, they charged iPod Touch users $10 for the privilege of upgrading to the new OS. That hasn't happened since, but saying ALL iOS updates are free is incorrect. I wouldn't put it past them to charge for it again eventually.
6 months ago on iOS 7 Looks Great, But Does It Offer Anything For The Android Enthusiast?
I was excited for this, but sadly it isn't even in the same universe as Google Music All Access. I don't want strictly streaming radio, I want something like Spotify but better. iTunes Radio is not that solution. Google Music All Access is. I can't wait for Google to release that iOS app!

It keeps saying "an error has occurred, please reload". It's stuck in a loop.

Umm....1.9 GHz Quad Core Processor in the US. 1.6 GHz Octa-Core processor in the rest of the world. Your post states 1.2 Quad Core.

Power Toggles will stay at the top of your notification shade if you set it up correctly. I've had it on my Galaxy Nexus for months and it's never moved from the top.

@Use both android n apple @mindoversoul First of all, "fones" isn't a word. Secondly, even 90% of FREE Android phones still have screens that are either larger or the same size as the iPhone. OS functionality on devices with limited hardware is subject to the device, but EVERY Android and iOS device can watch Youtube, Netflix, and movies from their respective ecosystems, which is the point of this article. Thanks.

I use Android to watch all my web videos. The larger screen makes watching videos much easier. I do watch some on iOS but mainly in the car where my iPod has a bluetooth connection to the car stereo.
I'm not as upset about the Falcon Pro situation as I am that the word butt-hurt is making it's way into journalism. Falcon Pro is sad and I want to help the developer as much as I can, but seeing butt-hurt in a blog article just makes me lose all faith in humanity.
Thanks for making me lose every ounce of respect I ever had for this site.

I was really excited to see that Spotify had a shiny new interface, and while it is better, it still doesn't look half as good as the Android version, which sucks because I use the iOS version more. The "Now Playing" screen on the iOS version is hideous. They need to make it match the polish of the Android app!
9 months, 2 weeks ago on App Watch: Photoshop Touch launched for iPhone, Amazon Cloud player for iPad, and Spotify updated with new look
Apple bashed its competition during the keynote and blatantly slammed the Nexus 7 when comparing it to the iPad mini. Seems like Amazon is just following in Apple's footsteps and telling customers their product is better. Its good marketing. Especially because Amazon is telling the truth in their comparison and Apple blatantly LIED during the iPad mini keynote. The Nexus 7 CLEARLY showed more web page on the screen and they stood there and said it didn't. Amazon is just doing what Apple did, but Amazon is being ethical about it. I like the ad.

The video that was posted clearly shows a rooted handset as indicated by the padlock under Google during boot up. Not saying its fake, But how is an unannounced handset already rooted? It looks more like an Optimus G with AOSP on it and a fake cover on the back.

"Of course I would recommend the iPad mini"
Why? I actually am curious. A device with an older, slower processor, lower screen resolution than most of its competitors and stuck with a starting price at least $80 higher than any of them, seems like recommending it to anyone is a bad idea.
In my opinion Apple had an opportunity with the iPad Mini and completely blew it. Its 2 years out of date and hasn't even launched yet.
1 year, 1 month ago on iPad mini vs. Nexus 7, size comparison
Updated my iPod Touch 4G today, the update went well, but I wish it hadn't. Apple maps...sucks. The new App Store and iTunes app...suck. Safari...still sucks. I despise the new music player UI. And everything else is pretty much identical. So Apple took a dated OS in need of a refresh and made it considerably... worse. God I wish Microsoft would bring back the Zune, made by Nokia and running WP8.

@TiP_Cam I did actually read your article. I am going off of my personal experience with iOS for the last 4 years. It's cumbersome difficult to use and puts form over function far too much. I have never had it perform any task well or easily. Everything takes far too many steps and the things that don't, don't work very well.
1 year, 4 months ago on Apple's maps triumph over Google
Apple maps look like everything else Apple makes. Really pretty, but not very useful. I can imagine the first news story about Apple maps. "I used my iphone for a road trip, the directions were wrong and I ended up crashed into a field.... But it looked AMAZING!"
I pre-ordered on June 29th and I got my shipment email at 2:07am CDT. Can't wait!
