Facebook app developer, Joe Hewitt, famously lambasted Apple for being too controlling with its App Store review process — now he’s dissing Google, calling Android dev tools “hideous”.
In a series of hyper-critical Tweets he says, “Android tools are horrendous, OS is hideous…”
Other criticisms inside his veritable torrent of tantrum Tweets include:
- “[Droid X is] not THAT good. Stick with your iPhone.”
- “Once a day or so it hits me that I am writing Java, and I cry a little,”
- “The more I work with Android the more it reminds me of Windows…as in, it’s really flexible, agnostic, and developer-friendly, but also really sloppily designed.”
Apple’s iOS wins a mention, but not in a good light, the developer notes, “…but the absence of big brother telling me what to do gives it a slight edge.”
