iOS 7 has popular Apple hacker eying switch to Android

Posted In News - By AndroidPress on Monday, June 17th, 2013 With No Comments »

As we all know, last week the team at Apple announced and revealed their all-new and completely redesigned iOS 7. A lot of people love it, some don’t, and obviously this is just the early beta stages of their new mobile OS. However, this morning a popular and well received iOS hacker and jailbreak master didn’t have very kind words to say about the new OS. In fact, he’s considering switching to Android.

For those that aren’t big into the iOS world, the popular hacker and iOS jailbreak master Pod2g is the one making the comments this afternoon. Ones which will be pretty shocking to some, while making plenty of Android users happy. Pod2G has been around for ages, has nearly a half a million followers on Twitter, and is huge in the world of iOS.

According to a slew of tweets sent out this morning it sounds like he isn’t enjoying his cozy and colorful stay on the new iOS 7 from Apple. From mentioning this is the worst move from Apple in the history of iOS and more. Obviously this is just one persons opinion, but a person that has loved iOS since the beginning. Here’s one quote that really stuck out for us:

After a few days of iOS 7 beta 1 testing, I must admit that I am about to switch to an Android device.”

Now don’t get too angry in the comments you iOS fans. We know, we know. Android has its fair share of issues at times, especially with beta versions, and this is exactly what we’re seeing here. iOS 7 is in an early beta stage, so obviously it will improve and such as time goes on. Pretty big and bold words from a famed iOS believer though.

In the end Pod2G goes on to mention poor battery life, constant crashes, and goes as far as to say there’s nothing revolutionary with iOS 7 and it’s just “kid painting”. That was probably my favorite part of all his comments. He’ll probably stick around, and likely jailbreak iOS 7 soon enough, but we’d welcome him to the world of Android with arms wide open.
