Somewhere inside Apple, there’s a guy who is receiving untold,
nay, unspeakable pleasures by inflicting on the development
community a kind of suffering that is as acute as it is pointless.
That pain comes in the form of a series of hoops that one is
forced to jump through in order to turn your phone into a
development handset. There’s provisioning profiles, ad-hoc
builds, certificates, and countless screens that I clicked
through, not really caring what they did, because they brought me
closer to being able to run my code on my phone. On Android, you
check one option in preferences. That’s it.
Garbage collection (Android has it, iOS doesn’t) is his biggest gripe.
