I tried out both development platforms, with a slight initial propension
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
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.
