Sports App for iPhone only

New Poster

Sports App for iPhone only

I saw today that Comcast has released a Sports App for the iPhone only.....available only on iTunes.    I can not believe that when they develop a new app, it is not ported BOTH to iPhone AND Android.  This should be a parallel release... instead of favoring one platform over another.

 

Come on Comcast........wake up......miilions of us Android users want the same benefits you give iPhone users.     Try and be fair......

Re: Sports App for iPhone only

Development for the iPhone/iPad is more straightforward, because there are only a couple of hardware variations that need to be taken into account...there are myriad variations of Android OS releases and hardware combinations that need to be taken into consideration when developing apps for that platform, so it takes longer. They are likely working on an Android version (I don't know for sure)....be patient...or would you rather have a buggy, partially-functional version released?

I would expect them to take that all into account, and do simultaneous releases when BOTH were ready......

Re: Sports App for iPhone only

Maybe they'll learn from their iOS app and do a better job with the Android one. The second release is often better.

 

Many companies are not releasing apps for both platforms at the same time. They often have different teams doing the development. I doubt Comcast has a big development team. 

 

Historically, users of Apple products have had to wait for software developers to maybe get around to a compatible release. Maybe. This iOS priority is welcome.

Sadly, everything mentioned by has been spot on.

 

The good news is that our team is working on bringing this app to Android but there is currently no launch date or timetable for its release.

 

Once I learn more, I will update the board.

 

Thanks,
