Woz praises Android, mistakenly bemoans iPhone 4S voice commands

“Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with Jobs in 1976, says he’s a big fan of Android phones. Woz says he still thinks Apple’s iPhone is the best overall smartphone, but he says there are ways in which Android has leapt ahead of Apple,” Dan Lyons reports for The Daily Beast. “‘My primary phone is the iPhone,’ Woz says. ‘I love the beauty of it. But I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do.’”
Android phones aren’t as simple to use as the iPhone, but they’re not that much more complicated, and ‘if you’re willing to do the work to understand it a little bit, well I hate to say it, but there’s more available in some ways,’ Woz says… ‘There’s not as big a difference [between iOS and Android] as there was between Mac and Windows,’” Lyons reports.

Lyons reports, “Woz says he recently spoke to a developer at Foursquare who said Apple’s bureaucratic approval process slows app developers down, whereas on Android, developers can get programs out faster and work on making tweaks and revisions in less time.”
