No not really, but I get the feeling Tex is pondering losing the android app, and I think most people missed the thread above...

I wanted a more representative turnout.
Nope, quite the opposite. I think in terms of accessibility and modification it will outshine the Apple products before to long.

Ahh! awesome! I think it already does.

Ironically, if you were using the Android app, you wouldn't have seen it unless it got bumped up under "current" or you specifically checked the HBT announcements. I was a little worried myself that tx was thinking of ditching the app.

BTW, can I interest you in some rubber nipples?

No, but do you have any rubber WALRUS protectors?

Being able to modify your phone is nice, but I am still wary of droids for one reason, viruses. If they were not capable of being infected, I might have chosen one over my Iphone.

I have looked at all kinds of crazy crap. no viruses.

On a PC computer vs apple, I am right there with you. On a mobile device running google software, I disagree.

Apple is an evil genius. The reports of "safety" with the iphone are meant to scare you away from droids, and make you pay apple for music, apps whatever.

My google chromebook is virus proof guaranteed PC.

Not saying that they are necessarilly the same, but it is a different world from PC computers vs macbooks (in which apple delivers a decisive victory)

Meanwhile, nowadays it totally sucks. I cannot count the number of times it has crashed on me. And attaching images to a post is an extremely iffy proposition. About 50% of the time it gives me the message "this application has crashed" when I try. I have essentially given up using the HBT android app due to the problems I have had with it. I would love to see it become as stable and usable as the iOS version, but so far I have not seen that level of quality.

There's plenty of Android users here. I have the app. I have to say, I find it extremely limiting. That's why I didn't reply.

Couple it with my dislike for the Android keyboard (my only gripe with my S3) and I have trouble keeping the patience to finish a single post. I'd rather just scroll around the page in Chrome on the phone if I have to post.

Yeah I also agree with thadius856 on the point about the keyboard on the S3. It is so frustrating to use that I find it difficult to compose a post, and then when I do get one finished, having the app randomly crash just sends me over the edge.

Apple propaganda! As far as I know, there is only 2 ways to "infect" an Android. Dowloading a spy app in the play store, which Google has gotten much better about cleaning up, or allowing your phone to download and run apps from outside websites. Iphones have excellent security with very little freedom while Android has great freedom with little risk.
