The Hills Are Greener: Why Switch?

The Hills Are Greener: Why Switch?

Mar 2, 2011

If there was a single day that convinced me that there was a huge ideological gap between the iOS userbase and Android userbase, it was the day the web Android Market launched. All sorts of iOS folks, mainly media types, were having their fun poking around the Market, pointing out all the silly live wallpaper and apps of dubious trademark status. While they may have a point about how nice the Market looks compared to the App Store, and how much crap gets through on the Market compared to the App Store (though, if you ask me – there isn’t much of a difference, and it’s not like anyone’s ever blatantly ripped anyone off on the App Store), there was one thing that stood out to me that I kept hearing: “Why would anyone switch from iOS to Android?” Well, my name is Carter Dotson, and I switched from an iPhone to an Android phone. This is my story.
