I'm curious to know how many here use either or none or something else.

I used a Blackberry for several years and switched to iPhone about 3 years ago. As much as I loved the Blackberry brand, it just fell way behind the iPhone when I made the switch.

I only got into the smartphone game 2 years ago with an iPhone. I liked it a lot, but I have recently moved over to Android.

I'm not as impressed by the variety of apps for Android as I was with iOS but I really like being able to customize my phone without having to "jailbreak" it. Although, this didn't stop me from rooting my current phone and loading a ROM on it :>

I have a blackberry for work that I use as little as possible.

Im on android. Use it nonstop for everything, web is perfect, irc is awesome(andchat).
Glad everyone else finally caught up speedwise to iphone, cuz apple always kinda irritates me with all their policies, and closed systems, and uncustomizability to the point where the way they are as a company makes me skip over their products even when they are superior

I'm on android (Samsung Galaxy S Captive). And I love it! I rooted it but have yet to add a ROM, just never found one I was fond of. Sadly though, because I am on AT&T, it's only 2.1 instead of 2.2 or 2.3 :( But I will upgrade the firmware once I am back home :D As for the apps, there are really only a few apps I use that often. Sure there are a few games for iPhone I can't play on Android, but all of my productivity apps and other daily use apps are on my phone.

I've always avoided having a smartphone! I'm online so much already, I don't think the internet is ready for me to be on it any more :)

I am on Andriod (X10 Mini Pro).Prefer it over iPhone because I didn't have to sell one of my kidneys to buy it.
Rooted my phone a few days ago since SE wasn't ready to give a Android 2.3 update to the X1o mini pros.

As for apps, I hate almost all the games that come out for smartphones mainly because they lack gameplay. I was really excited when I bought a smartphone simply because of the new capabilties, but what did I get? A bunch of pathetic touch screen games like throwing paper in a basket and a sh*t Crush the Castle clone. The only games I play on my phone are some GBA games using an emulator.

Sorry to disappoint bro, but that's not my intention.

I seem to think that it would make sense to make a tutorial geared more towards mobile uses for Construct 2 if the interest is there. For now, I have a touch based event working for iPhone for my game that I am porting to Construct 2.

Peace out.

i had no problem with your thread. i'm working on porting an app to both iphone and android using appmobi and posting about the experience.

i was just worried that the 'discussion' would digress to what mac/android discussions usually move towards...the lowest common denominator.

glad it didn't.

lol...yes, I see your point. The crowd here is bit different and it's a good sign.

At any rate, porting this over to the mobile space is what I ultimately want to do as I have a few projects on the horizon and C2 looks to be a good candidate.
