comment Android vs iPhone development
Android phones will doubtlessly be more popular than iPhones soon, if they aren't now. The real battle between Android and iPhone will be for ad views (which Android will almost certainly win) and paying customers (which Apple will almost certainly win).

comment Android vs iPhone development
@Groo How is that applicable? When the OP says, "With Android you are productive… without any investments…" he's making the assumption that you already own a PC and an Android phone.

comment What techniques/methodologies do you use to organize your own open source projects, and why?
Of course! "Create and perfect". One feature that does exactly what I need is better than 20 features that are all mediocre.

comment What are the Most Important things to know about iPhone Development?
My reason for posting retainCount is that people attempt to use it for debugging. They may have properly retain/released an object, but they'll be mystified when it has a retain count far higher than they thought it should be. Then they make the 4000th post on SO asking why the retain count isn't what they expected.

iFart was also only $1 and trivially easy to buy.

When you say "Landscape is required" do you mean in addition to portrait? My app only does a few things in the background on iOS, do I need to explicitly opt-out of running in the background if I don't need to be doing anything in the background?

In answer to @Nassign's comment-as-an-answer: I certainly would have gotten a lot more answers if I had posted on Stackoverflow, but browsing Programmers it looks like there's a lot of these types of questions that are being migrated over here. If it would be more appropriate for that forum, I can ask it over there.

comment Android vs iPhone development
Developing for iOS cost me exactly $100 (I already owned an iPhone and a Mac). Are you telling me that I can get a contract-free Android phone suitable for serious development for significantly less than $100?

comment How much time a week do you spend on extracurricular programming?
Good answer. I'm also looking for answers of the type: "My app is selling 200 times a day and I wrote it in 4 months by working x hours per week"
