    You mean like this? Dropbox and the others you mentioned can be added in the same place with jailbreak tweaks.

    May not want to use MMi as an example. With the MMi app I just took a screenshot and uploaded it in about 10 seconds.

    but he doesn't need to root to do that. you need mobile substrate extensions (always working)

    and the mmi app uploads thumbnails.


    you are right. we (iOS users) can do almost the same things. but we need jailbreak and tweaks.

    The MMi app does not upload thumbnails. Click on that picture and it is a full size screenshot. Normally it shows that photo in the post, there is a problem on the MMi site side (nothing iOS related) that is preventing this right now, owners are aware.

    I don't see anywhere in the youtube app on my Nexus 4 to download a song right from the youtube app, maybe you can point me to where exactly that feature is. In any case on a iPhone there are apps that can download songs and video right in that app. Then for non-jailbreakers that song/video can be copied from the iPhone using ifunbox or similar and then added to itunes for syncing. On a jailbroken iPhone this can be done on device with iFile which gives options for what you app you want to use to open the music or video and can even be added to the native music app using gremlin.

    .
    Again, I don't see where in the gmail app on my Nexus 4 I can add any file to the email once I have started typing it. I get the same options in there that I get in the mail app on my iPhone, add photo or video. On the jailbreak side iFile can copy, cut, bluetooth, email, delete and even zip any file type in the file system of my iPhone.

    True, I like this about Android, especially the launchers. Again there are ways to do the same thing with a jailbreak though.

    iTunes is by far the easier and well done of solutions for syncing music to your device. It's not even a comparison. Trying to find a android equivalent is like pulling teeth, trust me I know. Each manufacturer has it's own software of doing it, some like plain android simply have android file transfer which is not the most user friendly of programs. With iTunes I can sync all my playlists, videos, pictures etc and choose what I do and do not want to sync, integration between a iPhone, iTunes and Mac software like iPhoto is far superior to what android has. Third party programs are needed to do similar things unless you just like treating your device like a USB stick and having to manually do all the work yourself, which guess what, can take a LOT of time and effort. You can even choose to manually sync stuff with your iPhone in itunes so you can just drag and drop music/videos to your device without having to create playlists and stuff if you don't wish, 1 file at a time in a matter of seconds. On android I use tunesync to sync my music for an easier time while keeping my playlists in tact because it uses iTunes playlists to accomplish this. Photos however are not easily done, a lot of searching and time has to be put in to find a solution for syncing albums/photos/videos from iPhoto to an android device. Of all your comments this was the most ridiculous, Android just has no equivalent to iTunes that works on all androids, multiple apps must be found and used to replicate different parts of what iTunes can do.

    Now don't get me wrong, I am in no way putting Android down. I REALLY like Android and love my Nexus 4. here is where we differ though, I am open-minded enough to see both the positives and negatives of each platform and enjoy both for what they are. You seem unable to do this and are extremely Android biased, probably the most of any member on this site, you just can't see what iPhone can do well instead focusing on things you THINK android does better.
    Bottom line is to each their own, stock iOS VS Android is a matter of preference, sure Android allows way more customizations, not everyone wants this though and some see it as a hinderance. Now jailbroken iOS VS Android is a whole different story, they are on a much more level playing field in this situation, things Apple has left out or doesn't allow that android has is filled in by the jailbreak community. I don't think you can think of one thing Android can do that a jailbroken iPhone can't do as well. Ok, maybe NFC, which most would deem pretty gimmicky and useless at this point, wireless sharing with photo stream or dropbox I think is a better solution than "bumping" your phone up against another one.

    with jailbreak tweaks? why should users have to hack their phones, void their warranties and render their phones laggy, unstable and full of bugs--or worse, tethered. I burned out my iPhone 4 battery once because of this and it cost me $80 at apple SoHo to get it replaced. when I got it back the home button wasnt working. to apple's credit, they replaced the phone with a new one so I was forgiving of spending about 2hrs in the store.

    1. I used one app to copy the URL, upload the video which then downloaded it back to my phone. I used a second app (built in file browser) to navigate to where it was saved. opened it, done. yes, this can be done on an iPhone IF, Its jailbroken and IF you have your desktop in front of you. iFunbox certainly makes life on an iPhone easier but I did all this from the subway on my way home from work, no need to jailbreak and no need to carry my desktop with and no need for 2 additional pieces of desktop software to assist. plus, iTunes would not (as it often does) even allow me to add that same file to my iTunes playlist. maybe its some digital copyright

    2. your nexus cant add attachments with stock email? I have the Tab 10.1, Note I and S3. they all have the same email options which include. attachments of ANY file type, insert photos, font size, bold, italic, and background color. but again with the iPhone, it requires jailbreak which the average iOS user doesn't even know exists.

    3. iTunes is ok for somethings but I think its a horrible way to add music when all I have to do with my Note is drag, drop done. I can add entire albums to a playlist by long pressing and taping 'add to playlist' or create playlist. I don't make mixed playlists, all my playlists are by artist and there simply is no easier way to do this than what I just described. with iTunes I occasionally cannot add a song I want simply because iTunes will not import the damn thing which was the case with the song I converted from YouTube. also if you're pressed for time its way too much to do all that you descried with iTunes when I can simply copy the files to my device and build and edit my playlist on the go. plus if I just want one song I don't have to sync my whole phone first, do the playlist thingy then sync my whole phone again---all for just one file?!?!?

    I enjoyed my time with the iPhone August 2009 - November 2011. as nice and necessary as jailbreaking it was, it was also one of several reasons I got tired of iOS. I used to spend hours restoring all my favorite tweaks--IF the cydia source was still available otherwise I was SOL. I also grew tired of either not updating my firmware because I had to wait for an untethered JB or upgrade and be stuck with tethered which once burned out my battery when it got caught in a boot loop. had the iPhone a simple removable battery, I wouldn't have damaged my phone.

    Some would argue you just described an android phone. My jailbroken iPhone 5 is not laggy, unstable, full of bugs or tethered.

    If the iPhone is jailbroken I can do all that you just said without the need of a computer. If it is not jailbroken I can just go to the iTunes store on the phone and download the song I heard on youtube. What you are describing to do for one song seems like an awful lot of work. Open itunes app, search song, buy song, done. No uploading URL's, searching in the file system etc. Android can do this too with the google play music store. I just don't see why someone would want to go through all that for a song from youtube.

    I didn't see anywhere in the mail app that could do it. Maybe your gmail app is different than mine. Maybe it is a touchwiz thing, dunno.

    I have never had any issues with adding a song to itunes. Maybe you are using some weird file types, dunno. I can drag and drop 1 song using itunes just as easily as you can drag and drop a song onto your android. I can also make playlists right on the phone itself on the go. No jailbreak needed for any of that. You don;t have to sync "your whole phone first" using manually manage music, 1 setting in itunes and drag and drop just as easily you can. Maybe you never used that feature when you had an iPhone.

    Never have to wait for an update on your Android do you? Sure lol. That's one of the reasons I chose a Nexus for my android device. No waiting on my carrier or manufacturer to push me an update some users got months ago.

    1. I never went past the iPhone 4S and I can assure you that jailbreaking can and does cause some weird things to happen. we dont all use the same tweaks and such so you might not have the issues that I had.

    2. the song I wanted was of a live concert that somebody uploaded to YouTube so downloading and converting to MP3 was the only way to get it--and it was quick and easy.

    3. not Gmail. the standard email app.

    4. as for updates., there are more Galaxy S3 users with Jellybean than there are iPhone users with iOS 6.x....according to one study.

    seriously, what's wrong with touchwiz? all I hear is how much people hate TW. o me, Sens, TW and everything else is all the same. I guess some people like the Holo UI but I think its dated and boring.

    I use Nova launcher and I mess around with Chameleon which is soo soo terrible but very pretty to look at.

    I dont know about the others but your last point is hilarious.
    There is no 'study' which can possibly claim that there are more s3, jellybean users than iphone, ios 6 users because the number of s3's sold till date (not just the ones running on jellybean) is less than the number of people who jailbroke using evasi0n.
    So your s3's on jellybean cant even match up to the number of jailbroken iphones, forget considering the entire ios6 class!

    Use believable numbers while talking abt android. Cuz otherwise, ure just losing your credibility.

    Honestly why bother even debating over this. iOS is superior and everyone out there knows it. People change from android to iOS not the other way round.

    There is no 'study' which can possibly claim that there are more s3, jellybean users than iphone, ios 6 users because the number of s3's sold till date (not just the ones running on jellybean) is less than the number of people who jailbroke using evasi0n.
    So your s3's on jellybean cant even match up to the number of jailbroken iphones, forget considering the entire ios6 class!

    Use believable numbers while talking abt android. Cuz otherwise, ure just losing your credibility.
    here's the link if the mods dont block it. if you gonna count JB iPhones you should count the millions of rooted S3s. iOS More Fragmented in North America than Samsung Devices | TechnoBuffalo

    is that why Android has a world wide market share of over 70% and iOS at barely 205? how is iOS superior to Android. give me 5 examples....no wait, that's too many. give me just 3.

    People on different firmwares for the same device isn't fragmentation. That just shows how many people are just too lazy to press update or don't want to because they are jailbroken. If you want to fairly compare fragmentation between android and iOS you take into account all the devices running those operating systems and what the max firmware available is for them. I'm not so sure that graph would come out so favourably for Android

    Market share doesn't always signify a superior OS. Look at windows and Mac OSX (that's a whole other debate though lol). IMO Android has a larger market share than iOS because of one simple fact: choice. There are so many more different devices at all price points that run android. There have been just 6 iPhones and all have been introduced at a not so low cost (for no contract price). A fairer comparison may be to compare flagship phones like iPhone 5 Vs the S3. Even that cannot be a fully fair comparison though because you could argue other Androids take some share away from the S3 so if they weren't there the S3 would have higher numbers. So either way you look at it trying to compare market share just isn't the best way to do it, there really is no best way because of the differences between them, you are comparing 1 company against dozens, just isn't going to work.

    Ya, odd things can happen. I help people all the time on here with them. I have very rarely had something happen I couldn't fix or explain though. If you stay with the default repos and only install things you know are compatible with each other things normally run very well.

    Aah, ok. Ya, I have had to get a song or 2 from youtube as well because of this. I just used vdownload on my iPhone.

    Gmail is the standard email app sin't it? Is it not a google OS lol? I know what you are saying though, I will check the other pre-installed email app when I get home to see if I have those options too. Just weird that the gmail wouldn't isn't it?

    I highly doubt there are more S3 with jellybean than iPhones on iOS 6. Especially since the 4S itself has out sold the S3 and the iPhone 5 caught up to its sales in a few months. Not to mention those still on a 3GS that are on iOS 6. I am 100% certain there are more iPhones on iOS6 then there are total S3's sold.

    seriously, what's wrong with touchwiz? all I hear is how much people hate TW. o me, Sens, TW and everything else is all the same. I guess some people like the Holo UI but I think its dated and boring.

    I use Nova launcher and I mess around with Chameleon which is soo soo terrible but very pretty to look at.
    Yup, I really am 61F here today and I am freezing lol. That is cold for us.

    I dunno about touchwiz, just never really took to it, can't really say why though. I had an S3 for a few months and I just didn't enjoy using it as much as the HTC one X or my Nexus. I use Nova launcher too, I have a whole MNML blue setup with that like this. I love that I can switch between that and the normal launcher whenever I want. I will say android is a lot more entertaining for a customizer than iOS is, at least stock iOS anyway.

    Many of these android devices are low end ones that cater to many groups of people. iOS is an elite OS and iPhone is an elite device hence only a few can get their hands on it
    Jokes aside, once apple releases a low cost iPhone(hope they don't) then we will see the market share lol. Having a larger market share for ANDROID doesn't mean a large one for SAMSUNG. Android made up of 20 diff companies bruv

    you have to jailbreak even to make something so simple as download things from safari and you say it's superior?......

    Superior? Nope, I wouldn't say that about either. Just different, they both cater to different kinds of people.

    At the end of the day people like us that come to sites like this are:
