Apple Doesn’t Copy Android

  1. One truly original-to-Apple feature of the new OS for its I-thingies is the
    ability to select something and share it via Twitter.

    Android has nothing like this. It has a “share†function which you will see
    in a lot of places, but when you select it, a list will pop up of all the
    apps that have declared that they know how to share whatever it is you
    selected, for you to pick one. These options might include a Twitter client,
    or whatever else you have installed.

    Apple is truly unique on this one, further widening the gap between it and
    Android.

    At least now on 2.2 I can use that list. Stupid samsung on 2.1 only
    showed the bottom options that would fit, so had to go landscape and
    then still missed some.

    It works great that way IMO, I guess apple will only tweet thru the
    apple twitter integration and nothing else like tweetdeck etc?
