    You are SOOOOOOO wrong about this! IF you want to add rooting/jailbreaking into the mix then Android FAR out does iOS. Something called Theme Chooser that is built into most of the more popular Android ROMS. Just download a theme, install it then use Theme Chooser to apply! Changes icons, status bar, menus, etc...depending on the theme creator...

    I have an iPad & it's jailbroken and love it...for what it can do. But the guy in the video posted KNOWS what he's talking about. I can do almost any tweak to Android...usually all you have to do is boot into recovery & flash a zip file for many tweaks. But this guy taught me a few new tricks! Thanks for those videos by the way (to the guy that posted them!)

    Yes, but you have to have a phone that has people devving for it. You never have that problem with ios. And with those tweaks, generally speaking, you can't just load an app store kinda thing like Cydia, you have to go to a forum, find where it is, and do that for each thing. I'm not saying Android cant do as much as an iPhone, I'm saying iPhone is easier on a lot of things. I've always wished we had a Cydia type thing for Android, that's be cool. And until then, Verizon needs to straighten up and release ICS for my rezound so we can get some decent ROMs goin again lol

    Are you joking here. I'm a computer geek, and this sounds crazy geek. It's much simpler to deal with jailbreak and downloading cydia themes and tweaks.

    This is what I get from android users all the time. They are so in love with technology that they fail to see how most people have no such interests and just want to do some things easily and get into their real interests.

    You kinda made my point by listing three different apps to replace iCloud. And I'll bet there are more you didn't list. Definitely a "different" way to replace ICloud. Have fun with that.

    If you want to take the time to set it up and maintain. What drove me to Apple was I didn't want to mess with that kind of stuff.

    Also, in the "ease of use" talk. It is much easier to jailbreak an iPhone than a droid, especially with the recent absinthe JB. Plug in, hit jailbreak, done. Never was it that easy with any of my droids.

    Ya better do your research bud...theme chooser all you do is push a button then click OK? Is that too difficult for you? That's the problem with iOS users...they fail to see that not everyone like to be sheep & all have the same device!

    WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Easier? You do EXACTLY the same as iOS...plug your device into a computer & click ROOT on the rooting program you're using. JUST as easy, doesn't install all sorts of EXTRAS like Cydia...only superuser which you never have to open unless an app needs root access ...just modifies a file or 2 to root. It's doesn't add all the BLOAT to your device.

    This is exactly why you can't have a civilized conversation comparing Android to iOS. This thread started off great then a few MISINFORMED iOS users spread FALSE information & turn this thread into an "My OS is better than your OS!"

    Okay, everyone - take a step back and a deep breath. Refrain from personal attacks on members for their choice of operating systems. This thread will continue if - and only if - everyone here maintains respect for all other member. There will be no name-calling and no put downs.

    This is the only - and last - warning for this thread. Keep it civil, people.

    Thank you.
