App rot

July 29th, 2014

Marco Arment:

I picked on the iPad earlier because its problem is deeper and more visible than on the iPhone today: while the iPad has most of the pricing and competitive pressure of the iPhone, the iPhone’s immense installed base can hide the problems for longer. The iPad has a much smaller installed base, so iPad development is even harder to justify.

Like Marco, I too have noticed apps for the iPad are not being as well cared for as their iPhone counterparts.
