DISCUSSION

One of the biggest reasons I went with iOS instead of Android. Android Apps are almost always lacking key features found in the iPhone version, and take months to get updated. Facebook, MLB At Bat, and Tango are just a few examples. Then there are the apps that are available on the iPhone that are old news by the time they get to Android months and sometimes years later (Words with Friends, Angry Birds, Viper SmartStart). I wouldn't trade the months I've spent killing pigs, starting my car remotely, and scrabbling it up with my friends just to have a better network or an OS that is more "open."
