Re: iOS just works..
Having supported hundreds of iOS devices for the last several years, I can assure you they definitely don't "just work". That said, I'm sure if we had all Android or any other platform to support, they wouldn't "just work" either. Hardly anything in IT "just works" most of the time, evidenced by the recent article about the US military's woes with the software on their newest fighter planes, and the fact that most of us manage to stay employed in this industry. Consumer-grade devices come and go so fast that by the time a platform is mature and the bugs are mostly worked out, we've all moved on to the next half-assed delusional attempt at what the manufacturers think we want.
Android is very consistent IMHO when it comes to where to find settings, and menus are similar in MOST applications. To me, Android seems very logically designed, while it's iOS that has settings scattered hither and yon. The only consistency in iOS is the big button to get home; to me the menus are just laid out appallingly. And the way iOS will nag and nag and nag you to enter a password for everything that it doesn't see as constantly logged in, popping the dialog right into the middle of what you're trying to do, is reprehensible and aggravating. Today while trying to help a user with a device, a 2nd password dialog kept popping up in the middle of my entering a password, thwarting me enough times that I really wanted to do violence to the poor iPhone.
But probably anything you're used to seems consistent to the person using it, while platforms with which someone isn't familiar seem horridly illogical.
P.S. It wasn't me that downvoted you.
