Dev's Eye View of iOS and Android

Interesting story by Mika Mobile on their experiences selling the same app on iOS and Android. They are reasonably pleased with the number of sales on Android (it’s a paid app). It sounds like they have a much louder grumpy-customer problem on Android, though.

There are days where I just want to pull the plug on the whole thing because I’m sick of 12 year olds (or people with comparable communication skills) trying to convince me they’ve been wronged and I should give them their 3 dollars back.  I just remind myself that my user review average would indicate that it’s a vocal minority that has these problems, and I shouldn’t throw the baby out with the bath water.

It is a loud, obnoxious baby though.
