    Pocket God

    I’m not really up to speed with all of the top iOS developers and applications, but allegedly, Pocket God was first published by Bolt Creative. Now, ngmoco are a well known iOS app development team, and it would appear as though they have been called upon to help with this port. Together, the two firms have released a version of the popular game Pocket God for the Android OS. Unfortunately, it would appear as though they are suffering from some of the same issues Rovio had when they first release Angry Birds.

    Mobile Crunch are reporting that the game will work on the Nexus One and EVO, but unfortunately there have been some negative feedback reports from users based on the Samsung Galaxy S variants, CLIQ and T-Mobile G2. The game itself only costs 99 cents, so it won’t break the bank and you can rest assured that these development houses will be working around the clock to fix it. However, this doesn’t really detract from the fact that Android fragmentation has played a part in hindering two major application developer studios.

      You know for so long the Apple fan boys have been using “Android fragmentation” as ammo for when ever they want to try and bring down Android.

      As you can clearly see, Android is no longer as fragmented as it once was. However there is still room for improvement. I came across an article that touched point on some of Android fragmentation issues and how they can be overcome. You can read the article here: http://getyourgadgetsgoing.com/2010/12/02/is-android-fragmentation-coming-to-an-end

      I think you’re certainly right. The fragmentation issue is dwindling. The double edge sword for Android developers is that they have to cope with tens of different devices, which may run at least three variations of the OS. I’m not an Android developer, so I don’t know the ins-and-outs of the development process, but I can certainly see Android being harder to develop for than the iPhone. The reasons are exactly the same as to why Android is more versatile, and in my opinion the better OS
