    What is it that iPhone apps have over Android apps? I keep hearing all over the place that iPhone app market is better, but I have never been entirely certain in what way. I have been told that the iPhone has better games, which is fair enough, but aside from them what advantages does it really have? I sometimes can't help but feel it's one of those things that people say without actually knowing whether it's true or anything about it.

    Companies in general will make an app for iPhones before Android (for example Cyanide and Happiness has an iPhone App, but not an Android App)

    Yeah, I havn't had the time to mess around with roms, so I just kept the stock one and overclocked it.

    When the hell is this 2.2 update supposed to be available? They say Q2, but knowing Motorola, its going to be sometime in June
    Exactly the same thing I've done!

    I'm getting impatient as well but I guess it's good to know that it'll eventually come. I believe they've started releasing it in other parts of the EU.

    If I'm not mistaken, the iPhone AppStore has a much stricter quality control scheme.. so you get less "dysfunctional" apps if that makes sense? That's not to say that there aren't quality apps for Android though

    Do you have a Gen 1 or Gen 2 OSF? I tried flashing CM7 only to get an error everytime I try...I'm thinking it might be down to the different generations. :K:

    This is true, though gradually I see it changing. For example, even Nectar (card / offers) has an Android app now.

    Oh yeah, it'll definitely change. After all, Android is now outselling iOS so companies will shift to making both apps.

    Except iPhone customers tend to happily pull out a few quid for an app vs android users who don't. They spend a heck of a lot more and they have gazillions of accessories.

    Android has the issue of maintaining quality and compatibility across a range of specced devices. So on the whole imo the apps on iOS run better as they are optimised. But there are a load of functional apps you wont see on iOS, like recently when I was looking for a text message based app to bring my phone out of silent mode so I can find it. This isn't possible on iOS as it's locked. There lots of other quirky apps which are really useful on Android.

    Completely agree! I have that app...the amount of times I lose my phone and it's hidden under a pile of clothes is ridiculous. Plus of course, we get widgets

    I have an OLED one, though this shouldn't make a difference. What error have you got?

    I had the same problem. The new clockwork mod recovery and ROM manager is excellent!

    I can't believe I overlooked it tbh. Really annoyed with myself now, spent nearly 2 hours on this! At least it's sorted :p:

    When I discovered why it wasn't working - I kicked myself. I knew that I needed to update Clockwork before I did it, but I for whatever reason... forgot. Thankfully, I had backed up my old ROM.

    I'm still repeatedly putting the phone to sleep and waking it up to see the cool old school CRT switch off/on effect.

    would you pump your dad to save your mums life? She's getting pumped by gorrillas and thrown into a volcano.
    I don't see how hypothetically performing a sexual act on my father, whilst my mother was hypothetically having things done to her by a gorilla, would save her life
