I agree that there is opportunity wasted. But if you look at it from the developers standpoint. Right now all he needs to do is support what he has. The android app. To create an iPhone/iPod touch app he would have to do a lot of rework.

Sucks because that app is wonderful. But if the person or person's who made it aren't developing apps for their full time income it doesn't make a lot of sense to add another application to a seperate operating system that you'd also have to manage bugs and update. While trying to create better and better versions of the app to stay competitive.

Not to mention that he may not recoup his costs by making an I-phone app. The disc golf scorecard market isn't huge and as far as I remember you need X-Code to publish IOS applications. So unless he feels like making a Hackintosh or buying a Mac that option isn't available to him.

It's a lot easier to develop for iPhones because you only have one phone to support. Plus you have to use a lot of their built-in code libraries which makes things a lot simpler. Android brings all sorts of grief like building web sites for full browser capability.

I only said iPhone was dying in order to get the Apple fanboys in a lurch, but since you asked, how's 73% to 14% of sales in Q3 2012 grab you?

Hey man I didn't mean you -- there are plenty of fanboys out there. Anyway, look at any stats you want. Android's lead is staggering and growing.
