APPLE TO THE RESCUE AS FACEBOOK MOBILE APP AND GOOGLE HANDSETS DESTROY YOUR MOBILE USABILITY

August 9th, 2012 · No Comments · Technology

My Droid finally kicked the bucket. After being continuously raped by Facebook and Google the thing just croaked. The display went Aqua, my contacts were gutted and the thing froze like a 17 year old poodle.

Even when I removed Facebook I noticed that my contacts still had the Facebook icon next to them with whomever’s latest status update. And Google…. my gosh, for a company that does so many things so right, how could they do the phones so wrong?

Forget about backup synch and gmail working together to protect your contacts. At least once every few months I would notice that the people whom I called the most would suddenly have “UNKNOWN” above their number. Best friends, family, work associates, creative colleagues… all gone into a black hole and requiring me to reconstruct my address book.

So the Droid is dead, long live my iPhone… again. For a guy who’s sworn off Apple several times in the past few years I find myself giving the devil its due with a new Macbook Pro and iPhone 4s.

There is a great article on why the Facebook mobile app sucks and you can click on the image below to check it out.
