Me too.

I tried out both development platforms, with a slight initial propension towards Android. Android's platform is a train wreck: unreliable, non-deterministic and so slow I simply can't tolerate it (nor afford to waste so much time in development). Non even "Hello World" works without searching the Web for fixes. Apple's works like a charm and is very fast (and fully C compatible) with only a minor initial snag in setting user permissions.

That said, Apple's attitude and this latest development makes me think that in the Android/Apple dilemma I'll probably choose "neither" and find some other line of work.
