I think this app has some really great potential & while I understand some of the initial criticisms, none really apply to me since I am not able to participate.
LIving in the app ghetto of anything non-ios, so many awesome apps & networks are unavailable to me.
While I understand the crews & developers behind this app & others (looking at you, Medium) may be slight & inexperienced when it comes to porting on different platforms, they really are favoring those who can afford, or choose, the itunes & apple experience — even the language of iphone vs smartphone, ipad vs tablet, feels tacky.
Especially since many fairly educated estimates claim ~eighty percent of smartphone users are on the android platform (look it up via your preferred search engine, yo), this feels exclusive when it feels like it should be inclusive.
I know this really is petty & I do not mean to seem insensitive. Especially those trying to use windows mobile — I pray for you.
