Default WOTA Off Topic

Just in case that some threads might derail… this is the perfect place for iOS vs Android and other exciting topics.

EDIT: just after a few days I'm convinced that it might be better to add a warning on top of this thread…

I suggest to stop reading this thread exactly here at this line: (unless you are snowbound in siberia and have already finished reading everything else on the web)

Ask any mobile dev & they'll tell ya: because of rampant piracy,
as well as a severe level of a proliferation of malware,
bothering with Android, in the long run, just isn't worth it.

When you create an Android version you can also do the Blackberry version.
But as said before: "possibly"
Well, it's "possible" to conquer the world, and look how well that turned out for Germany.
She is now the running lapdog of U.S. national interests in Europe.
Point being, just because something's possible doesn't mean it must/should be done.

Do you honestly believe the work you'll put into a Blackberry & WindowsPhone 8 version
will be justified by the end financial reaped rewards?
Of course not.
Just stick to iOS/OSX/W8 & you'll be fine, trust me.

The contrary is right. Actually our sales are quite much better for Android than for iOS. I know, iPhone are very, very popular over there in the US but become more and more less important here in good ol' Europe.

I had quite a laugh about this one. LOL. I really like your humor, being an evil Kraut by myself. I really mean it that way! You're a funny one, keep it up! Actually the truth is that I'm really, really glad we've lost the war!

Nothing could be more true, UNFORTUNATELY. Man I really don't like our politicans. Never got why they crawl that much!

Oh yes, it really IS worth it! And actually using Unity it's almost a single click to create versions for Android and Windows Phone.

As you know we have lost the war. I meant is not so difficult to start a World War. We do it twice but we had no idea to win it . We germans are not so stupid to try it a third time.

Now we have a lot of money, because we had such politicans as the lapdog of U.S. We are fat and we pay for our "friends" to protect us. I think thats a very good point of view. The United States are a very large country. With many brave soldiers and they do a very good job. Why we amateurs should do that job?

The NSA makes a good job looking in the german pottery. But who cares?

So if you think Apple is a timeless trademark look at Nokia. Or look at Detroit City or think about that Apple was two times down in his short history. Nothing in the world stands for ever. Nothing.

Empires rise up and fall. Someone wins and someone is loosing.

Stay cool!

Please enlighten us all as to how many games you have shipped since you seem to know it all.

My wife, who is German, is from a village you never heard of called Elmeloh.



She is a Plattsdeutschmädchen: sehr Prussisch.
Bossy, short-tempered, the whole bit.
She even sleeps at attention! lol

I mentioned your remark to her: the one you made about German soldiers being amateurs.
Her response?
Something along the lines of: "Quatsch!"

However, someone a tad more qualified on the subject tends to agree with you: "Red Storm Rising"

You honestly think the powers that be care about who Merkel sexts in her offtime?
And don't you think the German government, especially after
aquiring DDR Stasi assets post-Anschlüß, spies on The United States Of America, too?
C'mon ....

You sound like a smart boy: don't be so näive.
Everybody spies on everybody.
It's always been that way & always will be.
Privacy, especially in this, the Digital Age, is a non-existant, quaint concept.
Get used to it.

Well I've got a saying for you: there's a first time for everything.

Nothing stands forever, huh?
Not us, baby.
Not us ....

And you better pray that we're around forever.
Because if it weren't for us, you & the rest of Europe would all be speaking Russian by Christmas.
Don't you forget that.

Right, right.
Because as a paying customer, I have absolutely zero place to comment.

Actually, in a number of polls, Germany is often voted the #1 most tourist-friendly country in Europe.

And why do you continue to spell "German/y" with a small "g"?

Man you're right. Must be some kind of a false friend because the word "deutsch" == "german" is written lower case in g(G)erman but uppercase in English. Contrary to "Deutschland" == "Germany"

Hum? I'm snippy by default. Ask Hans.

With "false friend" I mean that's like the word "become" where we have the word "bekommen" in German which has a completely different meaning.

No need to.
As noted above, I expect this behavior from Deutschervolk.
However, I expect it where it's warranted.
Hence, my "no snippy" remark.

no:

When it comes to hard cash from customers – paid downloads and in-app purchases combined – iOS generates more than twice as much. Split out in-app purchases, and iOS generates four times the revenue.

I consider this as company confidential.
Well wait a minute now:
is it irrelevant or is it a trade secret?
Speaking to the former, I, for one, think it very relevant!


And tomorrow, 13.Dezember 2013, the long-awaited trailer for the movie "Interstellar" will debut.
Might you join the parade & also release this demo video you've been teasing for so long.

It's relevant how it finally feels and looks, not how it was technically done.

And it is information that I can not share. Otherwise I could start selling my solutions to all those other mobile developers who frequently ask me to license them.

Please accept that as the final answer.

Sorry no, I'm currently too busy with the first release of WOTA.
But you won't have to wait for a long time.
