My brother owns an iPad, he lets me use it when he goes to work, after a few months of using it, i got bored. I got bored because iOS doesn't have customization like Android. Everytime i want to turn on wifi or bluetooth when i'm using an app, i have to (1) use 4 fingers pinch out to go to home screen (2) tap settings (3) tap wifi (4) turn on wifi (5) use 4 fingers slide up to show the app switcher (6) tap the app icon to go back to the app. and of course there are other ********** limitations in iOS. one so-so-great thing iOS has is the app store, there are many apps optimized for ipad, it looks great on the ipad, there are many games too. and many websites are also optimized for ipad but because i got too bored with it, especially with the ipad keyboard, it sucks, it's painful to type, so i bought a TF300 (an android tablet, not sure if you even knows it lol). of course i like its customization a lot, i can almost change/customize anything i see: from lockscreen to home screen, keyboard, status bar, notification center. the first app i downloaded was swiftkey to replace the default keyboard, it's so much easier to type. and it also has a widescreen, making watching videos awesome, then comes the google play store, there are many apps available for android, yeah there are, but for phones, not tablets. for example the rdio app looked great on the ipad before now i'm seeing the phone version showing on my android tab. 1 lucky thing is the way android zoom the app is not like ios, it's not like you press "2x" on the ipad, it's better, it knows how to scale well, but way worse than the one i see on the ipad, too much white space. there are some apps optimized for android tabs, but not too much. games for example: some games won't even run, and graphics are not good as ipad's games the same thing for websites, making browsing experience painful anyway i'm keeping my TF300, these days i use it for videos, news, so it's ok, sometimes not good but not too bad, i don't play games too much, when i do i have riptide gp optimized for tegra 3 chip (thankfully, it's better than riptide gp on the ipad and it looks awesome). IN SHORT, nothing is perfect, but i didn't know both are SO FAR from perfect. now if you're asking me "should i buy an android tablet or an ipad", i would say "i don't know", really. forgot to mention my brother doesn't use his ipad at work because he's tired of using it, he only uses it when he gets home for facebook, ebay or web browsing (which the ipad does really good job). he was gonna break it because when he was using itunes it deleted all of his videos on his ipad (because it sync from computer). he especially hates the way ios store files, there's no file manager, it's just in the app. he is not so good in tech, he needs something to easy to use, not itunes lol. he says he's waiting for the MS surface, i like windows 8 too, but i think it's not gonna be cheap. so then again as of now, ALL TABLETS ARE FAR FROM PERFECT IMO.
