A few years ago, I got my first Android device after being on Windows Mobile for quite some time, painful time may I add. That first Android device was the HTC Hero for sprint. Cool little device at the time and I enjoyed it for what it was. The day the HTC Evo 4G came out, I went and bought that. Why am I telling you my Android buying history? Well because I find myself a bit confused with something that has happened. Using the HTC Hero (3.5"), I obviously downloaded a host of apps on what was the Android market at the time. When I got my HTC Evo 4G (4.3"), I again downloaded the same apps that were on my Hero. Each app that I opened had no problems displaying the full screen real estate of the Evo even though I just came from a Hero. Why is this important? Well, it's because I am pretty confused. I bought the 4S on launch day and enjoyed every second of it. I have always had an iPod Touch and enjoyed the apps on that much more than on my WM or Android devices. Polished to a tee. The UI, optimization and integration, simply unrivaled (at least at the time). So here's my question and concern, thanks if you stayed with me this far. Why can't the apps for the iPhone 4S and below automatically scale to fit the iPhone 5 resolution without any updates just like it did with my Hero to my Evo? I don't know what difference's there are with Android and iOS SDK's, but obviously there are and I would love to be enlightened on them. Last but not least, I wanted to add that I have seen the holy grail (app store) of iOS start to slip ever so slightly. Many of my paid apps that I have enjoyed from my first iPod touch have slowly but surely lost more and more support over the years. Recently, I have contacted multiple devs about issues such as retina support (believe it or not), iPhone 5 support, simple bug updates, new OS integration and much more. The replies I have received have been dismal at best. The only thing I can personally take from these devs replies are that they either have lost most of their interest in iOS development or they are losing faith in the Apple ecosystem and/or growth of iOS as a platform itself. Sorry if all you see is wall text, but I would love to have my one question answered as well as open discussion for my other point. Cheers!
