Why don't designers take Android seriously?(cennydd.co.uk)

    Let me answer quickly with two missing points for me:

    1. Every designer and some clients know what iOS looks like: so when we look at an interface we don't focus much on the OS particularity but more on the real details of the designer's work.

    2. Early adopters are commonly on iPhone. AppStore helps beautiful and well-thought out interfaces to be on the first page and iOS can be the perfect launchpad before an Android port.

      The second point doesn't really make sense to me. Second time I saw it in this thread.

      Could it be that early adoption usually occurs because quite a few apps tend to be launched on ios first?

      And, I mean, if you're gonna have a beautiful and well thought out interface it shouldn't really matter what platform you start with. I assume you'll have to iterate either way. I've never done either so I'm curious.
