I love my iPad. I love my new iPhone 4. However, I have a huge heart ache with the way that Apple has introduced and promoted these products. It has not been the Apple experience that I have been used to experiencing. Let me start with the App store. Apple has boasted about the iPad and how easy it is for the developers to make their existing iPhone apps to be iPad specific. To date, maybe 25% of my apps have updated for iPad specific display. The iPad has been out for 3 months now. What in the hell is the problem? Where are the apps? Not only are the apps not iPad specific, they lack originality. The only good "new" apps that have been released are Netflix and Hulu. Seriously, do you have another iPad only app that you'd recommend to someone (and no, I'm not talking about Games...which again is another sad story for iPad users)? To top it off, the apps that ARE iPad specific, are considerably more expensive. WHERE ARE THE NEW AND GREAT iPAD APPS???? The only thing I can think that has hindered progress on these applications is the new iPhone 4. Developers again have let me down with apps for that device and iOS4. The phone has been out for a week now, and more importantly, iOS4 has been available to developers for MONTHS. I find it very hard to believe that implementing iOS4 features (i.e. saved-state for multitasking) that Apple provides the API's for is very time consuming. Sure it takes effort, but months? Apple might as well not release a developer copy of the iOS if devs aren't going to do anything with it until a new device is released. This leads me to my next heart ache. The iOS4 updated apps do not include iOS4 features. I can't tell you how many apps that I've updated this week with a note saying "updated for iOS 4" or "iOS4 tweaks" only to have those apps not include the saved-state feature, low-resolution icons, or retina display. How in the HELL can they claim it is updated for iOS 4 without implementing those features? What a freaking joke. Sure, let me say my app is iOS 4 ready (only because it doesn't crash) and let me and Apple rake in the money from the poor saps who were fooled by the update terminology. The people with the new iPhone 4 are looking specifically for apps that are iOS 4 ready. Apple is letting developers update their apps and claim that they are iOS 4 ready (even though they don't include any of the new iOS features like multi-tasking) so that they can dupe the consumers to buy that app. This has resulted in an inconsistent experience, and one that I can say is not pleasant. With all of the hype of "updating" the apps for iOS 4, maybe developers have forgotten about the beloved iPad. I certainly haven't seen any new great iPad apps lately, or even at all really. Apple has clearly said that it takes the developers to make these iDevice products be great. Come on developers, step up to the plate and at least start swinging. You can't hit a home run if you don't swing the bat!
