    Well today I wad looking through my iPod touch app store and saw that Meebo just made an app for the iPhone/iPod Touch. I looked at the UI and features it has and felt insulted at how much more features and more polished it was on the iPhone, when I have the app for my Droid which has been out for android a long time mind you, and we can't get the same kind of polish and functionality. Very unfair if you ask me.

    Very few devs listen to the bad reviews anyway so it won't matter

    I rooted my phone and one of the perks is a native IM app with AIM, Yahoo & MSN Messenger. Thank god I'm not left with what the market has to offer.

    The native IM app drained my battery faster than anything else I've done with my phone.

    If you don't know it's not something you should be doing.

    For those of us not familiar with Meebo on iphone, just what polish and functionality are we being cheated out of?

    I have noticed this with almost all android apps, especially ones that are also on iphone. I think it has to do with the limited space in which developers have to program. The graphics, Ui and snappiness are lacking on android apps. But, yes, on android they are functional. But thats about it.

    ...or you could point him to sources of information. Do we think everyone else is incapable of learning? Lead them to knowledge, supply the caveats and let them make decisions for themselves.

    If he/she can't click the little search button and type the word 'root' then I think I'm doing them a favor by not giving them rope to hand themselves with. I didn't know the first thing about it a couple months ago but I didn't go around asking people what it was or how to do it. I searched and read and read and read some more. Then, when I thought I was ready I read some more. If a person can't do that much on their own they shouldn't even be asking.

    So instead of, "try searching the forums for 'root' you'll find more information than we can post here" you decide to throw up a wall. You may not have intended it as such, but that is how it reads. Not everyone learns the same way, and judging others' abilities using your own as a yardstick is hardly civil. Opinions differ, I guess. In any event, I am done with the off-topic conversation and my apologies to you and the rest of the users here for going astray, but I see this attitude in many forums and merely felt it could be addressed.
