You can watch the keynote on a Windows PC but not on Android? Seriously?
Did you really think Apple, who won't even allow any apps in the App Store with the word 'Android' in the title, would allow that? Juvenile, I agree but not unexpected considering, IMO.
You can watch chunks on your YouTube app. Have at it.
I want to watch the whole thing uninterupted from Apple.
It is too lame to support Windows instead of Android.
Seriously? Never knew that.
They do in my App Store.
Just to add following my screen grab above; that app has been available in the App Store since 2009.
Alright, to clarify, I believe it's only applicable to apps related to the Android OS. For instance, Android Central hasn't been able to get their app approved on the App Store, they said, specifically because of the name.
A search on the US App Store for Android only show a few apps, most are games, and none involve Android OS.
Right Okay fair enough. So its just apps connected with the Android operating system and they do in fact allow apps in the App Store with 'Android' in the title.
I can't say I am surprised Apple have not granted permission for an 'Android Community' app to be downloaded in their store. Why would they deliberately give a competitor a portal to discuss rival products in app form? You can of course get round this by downloading 'Tapatalk' and searching for Android related forums on your iPhone. You can access 'Android Central' through there in the same way as every other compatible forum, like Mac Rumors for example
You could have streamed it with mx player using the link that was floating around that people were also using with Vlc on windows pc
Well, you said it yourself, it's still rather easy to get access to the same information. IMO, it's just juvenile.
Google certainly doesn't seem too concerned...
Well call it what you like but I don't see it as an important issue. I don't need to download apps promoting Android on my iPhone because to me its useless. If I were to own devices from both companies I would simply download the app on my Android device, as would most people I would imagine. Its not like Apple have a blanket ban on Google apps in their App Store.
I notice you haven't downloaded the app in your picture, any reason why not? Or is it just easier to use the many work-around's these wonderful devices allow?
I'm not surprised. Tried to stream it myself while on a long drive with a coworker, but leave it to Apple to shut out people interested in their product but not wanting to use their product to view their launch. Ironic really.
Then I switched to my iPad Air with LTE and full bars and their site was so overloaded that it wouldn't stream, wouldn't even let me in and then when it did say loading, Safari would crash. So much for Apple smoothness and seamlessly just working attitude.
I ended up just watching the slide show or blog on my Note 3.
Don't actually use blog site apps (Android Central, Engadget, iMore, etc), generally prefer the web experience using my tablet.
