After over 10 years on iOS I’ve switched to Android on the Pixel 2 XL. So far an excellent experience.

@cdevroe What motivated the switch?

@cdevroe I switched to a Pixel 2 XL this past week as well. Love it so far.

@cdevroe I’m going to be very interested to follow your journey!

@cdevroe Are you a Mac user? I thought about Android, but sticked to iOS for Apple’s ecosystem for another term. Though I found FocusGTD that works perfect with OmniFocus, I think there are still workflows that work better on IOS/OSX. Any workflow changes with the Pixel?

Colin Walker says:

I flip-flopped between iOS and Android each upgrade cycle for a number of years so know from the experience that the move can be made and still be perfectly productive. Okay, some apps aren’t cross platform but alternatives can usually be found. I’m settled on iOS for now, though, as I’m comfortable with my workflows. Sometimes it’s just about wanting a change.

cdevroe says:

@Bruce i try not to be dogmatic so I try new things from time to time. Like I did with Windows 10. Also, Android on Pixel is unfussed with.

cdevroe says:

@scientifics ill be sure to write some on it.

cdevroe says:

@kulturnation I am a heavy Mac user/developer. I will comprise the nuances in an upcoming post.

kulturnation says:

@cdevroe That will be interesting to read, thank you

mikehaynes says:

@cdevroe If you don’t have one already, I’d recommend the Google fabric cases. They’re simple, and feel super nice in the hand.

cdevroe says:

@mikehaynes These look great. Do they add much bulk?

mikehaynes says:

@cdevroe A little bit, yes. Slightly more than the leather cases on an iPhone.

Bruce says:

@cdevroe That’s definitely more adventurous than I am. 🙂 But looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

mbd says:

@cdevroe did you use photostream or iMessage on the iPhone? Those were the things I couldn’t do without when I last tried Android. Also privacy and security concerns generally (security not so much by choosing a ‘Google’ phone. Privacy probably still a concern).

cdevroe says:

@mbd Yes and yes. I will write up how I switched everything on my blog soon.
