What, no iOS section?


I'm outraged, I'm incensed... I'm, I'm, I'm furious!!
I'm gonna go tell the whole world that the WHT admin hates iOS and plays favorites with Android!!!! BOOOOOO

No, really, can we have an iOS section too, please, please, please?

I guess it could not hurt to have an "iOS Devices" section.

But it would probably be empty, unless there's an iOS-KMyers lurking around

Android is the world's most popular mobile OS.

Come back and request it when iOS is number one

If there's an Android section, there should definitely be an iOS section.

But you requested an iOS section and not a iPhone section.

Android is the most popular mobile OS and hence has its own section - nothing to do with mods favoring one over the other. Of course if one OS has its own dedicated section maybe others deserve to as well. Maybe symbian and windows should be considered too as well as iOS.

That's just nonsense
Just because a piece of software is on 'more devices' doesn't mean it's "the most popular". It just means that it's the most diversified. iOS is just as deserving as Android of having their own section.


The truth is we don't really need a dedicated OS section for these devices. A mobile device section in general should qualify, and get things much more populated. I'm just saying that if one has to have their own forum, the other deserves equal treatment as well here . Windows is pretty much dead as a mobile OS, just look at their numbers.

If you had to choose one OS to have its own section, would you not choose it based on the one with the most users and the most popular?

Personally, I did not know the Android section existed til you pointed it out - Certainly do see where your coming from as it has a sub section of its own within "Computers, Peripherals, and Handhelds", when a sub section for all mobile devices would have sufficed.

There actually isn't much data when you compare total market share - including the iPod Touch and iPad which both run iOS. It's likely Android has more total share in the world, but I never found definitive data on that.

I'm with this idea instead ^^

Plus I think an iOS section is a non-starter when iNET owns mac-forums.com

Maybe put a link here to this spot: http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/ios-apps/. Like is done with freewht.com.

Hey.... ... ... ... There will never be an iOS-KMyers, thats impossible. Even if parallel universes exists, ALL KMyers will be Open Source Fans

That is true, for the reason I quoted above. I only have 7 android devices and carry 5 around at all times.
