Dear iOS developers (especially those who made iPad apps), First of all, I’d like to thank all of you for your non-stop flow of ideas to create innovative and groundbreaking apps and games for the iOS platform. This is the reason why I’m pledging myself for Apple products. I’m a previous 3rd & 4th Generation iPod Touch user, currently using my iPhone 4, and the original iPad. I love how they does to my lifestyle and my academic life so far. However, I’ve been noticing some of these changes within most of your apps ever since the iPad 2 came out. Oh wait nononononono….no….nooo. This is not my ranting for not owning a new/current gen device. I’m cool with that. Kind of. A bit. Oh well. Moving on. What I notice mostly is that how your apps being radically updated for the “optimised-for-iPad 2” thing, even to other non-3D/gaming apps. At first I thought that it was cool though, until I tried it first-hand. Opening a simple app like Zinio, Flipboard, and Macworld Reader have always led me to sudden-exit; it used to works flawlessly on the original iPad before. Opening games like R.A.G.E, NOVA2, and Infinity Blade were also the same; which these apps are used to works flawlessly on the original iPad. There are actually more apps that I cannot remember each of them, but take these as an example. I am sorry to say this, but I think that you guys are/were being attached too much with the technical specs of the iPad 2, which rendered your apps completely useless on the iPad 1. Heck, my iPad is not jailbroken; 100% clean installations. If you look back when the iPhone 4 came out, and then all the apps were optimised for it, it’s still works flawlessly on a previews device (iPhone 3GS/iPod Touch 3rd). In addition to that, some apps, although feels slower, are/were still works and can get the job done on the iPhone 3G/iPod Touch 2nd. I know that some readers will probably respond by saying “LOL u jzt jealous u dnt have the $$$$$ for the iPad 2 lmfao!”.. but that’s not the case here. Seriously. I think you guys should really take a careful attention toward the base system requirements before making the app. Second, for what I’ve learned, there are some people who purchased the previous iOS devices in less than 5 months; those people who are never get in touch with Apple Rumours communities and such. Third, iOS devices are NOT lightbulbs that we always have to replace at least once a year. When you guys radically optimised your apps for the iPad 2 and being totally useless on the iPad 1, you guys have render the money spent by the previous-gen owners useless too. I have to admit, you guys did great during the iPhone 4 era, despite that the contrast between the iPhone 4 and previous gen devices are quite huge. Why not do the same thing then? Thank you very much. My bad for my english.
