    damn i hate the iphone… on the old good times, developers designed Java Multiplataform software for Mobile devices, it didnt matter if you had a Symbian, iOS, BlackBerry or Generic OS if the system had support for Java it would work… now most of the mobile software devolep is focused on Android or Apple Code… which forces you to either one of them… i call that mobile software monopoly! (or duopoly)
