Working in secondhand electronics has it perks, and I recently found myself an owner of a 64GB iPad at an insane price. So in addition to my Android phone, I now have iOS in my daily life as well. Fun! Here's what I've been digging so far: Road Blaster HD: Thanks again to Badoor for pointing out that this existed! Road Avenger was my most coveted FMV game growing up, the animation looked amazing to me but I never got to try it out. For 99 cents it was too good to pass up. The iOS port's touch control seems a little bit dicey but shockingly enough, the tilting is pretty responsive. Loving the look of the game. Fruit Ninja HD: Same Fruit Ninja as before, only bigger! Halfbrick makes quality games for pretty much every major mobile platform now. Korg iMS-20: If you enjoyed DS-10 but wished there was more of it, you should probably get this! Amazing app, still learning a lot about what it can do. Picked up iElectribe as well but that's been a little less straightforward so far. Playing a little bit of Infinity Blade now, too early to say how I feel for sure but it seems really cool. Very impressive 3D for the hardware. Wish the Cave games had proper iPad versions but I'll probably end up picking them up anyway. The FF3 DS port is very expensive but looks gorgeous. Anyone play it yet? Also looking for recommendations on an IM client. IM+ is fine but I don't want to pick up the paid version quite yet. Everyone tells me Beejive is really good but there's no trial and it's $6. Urgh. All in all, very cool device - not gonna replace every device you own, but I'm finding tablet computing a lot nicer than I expected. I'll get to see how cool it is for sure when I go out of town for a week with it as my sole computer! I think it'll be fine but we'll see. [QUOTE]I would love to play some with Android, but sadly most of the devices are wildly non-standard (in a way that makes developing for it difficult) and the non-phone devices seem cheap to me.[/QUOTE] True on both counts. Only now are we seeing tablets of any real quality on Android, but in the case of the Xoom they're way too damn expensive and in the case of the Eee Transformer they made about 6 of them and you can't buy it anywhere. I think it'll be a while before Android catches up with the iPad, but it's only a matter of time until it overtakes it in terms of functionality. While Android does make things a lot more complicated at times and its market is inferior in some ways, the amount of freedom it gives you in exchange for that is totally worth it to me. I still have the original Motorola Droid on Verizon and I'm running newer system software than a great number of new phones releasing presently. Not only that, it was almost effortless to overclock with minimal effect on heat and battery life - it's performing like a new phone and should work like a champ until the end of my contract.
