LA Times: Apple's problems with iOS mirror Microsoft's issues with Windows http://www.phonearena.com/news/LA-T...mirror-Microsofts-issues-with-Windows_id78159 L.A. Times columnist Michael Hiltzik wrote a piece that was published in Monday's paper, discussing what he believes is the "disappearing integration" between Apple's hardware and software. He also has spotted an "explosion of discontent" among iOS users in regards to the quality of the core apps found on the iPhone and iPad. This "discontent" spreads to Apple's non-mobile devices as well. To illustrate the unusual position that iOS users find themselves in, the Times' columnist points out a comment made by former Wall Street Journal Tech writer and Re/code co-founder Walt Mossberg. It was just last week when Mossberg wrote that there has been "a gradual degradation in the quality and reliability of Apple’s core apps." Let's keep this thread mature, and professional please. I'm an Android Nexus fan myself, but totally open minded to going back to the iPhone, but iOS is what keep me away. Yes Apple makes amazing hardware, and designs a beautiful smartphone, top notch really. But man iOS to me looks the same as it did in 2007, of course it's been updated a lot over the years, but IMO it needs a MAJOR overhaul and get away from the screen full of app icons only.
