Splashtop HD is horrible and buggy, but I am forced to use it because it is the only vnc that is available for my touchpad as well as my other devices. Not even close to the same quality there.
MMI- of course anybody can use a browser, that is not the point and you know that.
No experience with any platforms tivo apps so no comment on either's quality.
Find My Iphone is much better, yeah I have sources, I have used the apps, good enough sources for me. You will have to try them yourself to make an opinion.
Tweetdeck is awful on every platform I have used it on, does not compare to tweetbot at all. I still use it on os x though because I refuse to pay $20 for tweetbot.
There are many apps that I use exclusively on each platform because they are not equal. For school I use android apps more, because even though they may be a bit lacking in polish, they provide more function for me. To each their own, I just think the examples you provide BIMPtacular prove nothing because they are terrible apps.

As for the Tivo App.... here ya' go: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....android&hl=en
You don't think Apple doesn't restrict stuff based upon your location... you don't use iTunes much huh? I GUARANTEE you stuff available in the US is not available elsewhere, and vice versa.
The Samsung version of the phone finder is not even available to a lot of carriers in the U.S. There are better apps out there anyways for it. This one is supposed to be equivalent to the IOS version: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...heresmyandroid
Google offline maps are available for numerous countries. The list is shown at: Availability - Google Maps for Mobile Help
You stated " Also, while I agree google navigation has been around a long time correct me if I am wrong but don't you need data for it to work? For international people who travel like me having the maps preloaded like tom tom does is a big plus, no data required for it to work."
I was just following your request to correct you if you were wrong..

Where's my android sucks, tried it. Cerberus which was suggested by painkiller is way better, you would have known that had you actually read more of the thread
I use iTunes all the time, iTunes does not check your IP and limit what is available in the iTunes store. If you choose the US itunes store and setup an account with either a US credit card or redeem card you can access all the apps, music, movies, tv shows etc available in the US iTunes store. I live in Bermuda and have NEVER had issues buying anything from iTunes, getting access to the US store is as simple as clicking on the little US flag in iTunes. The google play store on the other hand only shows me free apps with no sim in. With a sim in it shows me paid apps but obviously not all of them unless I go on the online google play store and use an IP changing app. The average person wouldn't be able to do what I did to get the TiVo app so for international users the Android experience is very limited (unless you are a little tech savvy and can find ways around it). And google play music and videos in non existant for me, I don't even get access to that part of their store.

Android is the ******* same. So both are stupid in that regard. I cannot buy books and music from google.

And before you or anyone says "I can't setup a US iTunes account" you or anyone can. All it takes is a US bought iTunes redeem card. With that you can setup a US iTunes account (you have to put in a US address but it can be any address, I just put Apple's address lol ) and have full access to the US iTunes store, no worries about IP checking.

If Apple played by the same rules (replace copyright with patent) then the gaming of the system could not be done.Not a waterboy for Android OR Apple.
