After being rejected by Apple, coder Alex Sokirynsky said he'd be an Android convert. The wannabe iPhone developer recently gained widespread attention when Apple rejected his application Podcaster -- because it allegedly "duplicates" iTunes. Then, Sokirynsky tried to sell his application through other means, and Apple shut down his operation. As a result, Sokirnysky on Tuesday announced in a blog post (before removing it, presumably in light of Apple's new non-disclosure policy regarding rejections) that he would cease developing applications for Apple and code for Android instead.
Yep looks like Apple is blowing a major lead with their 'rough treatment' of iPhone developers.
It's not up and running yet but check out www.MobileAppStore.com in the next few weeks for a new community site that will be set up to provide a forum for reviewing and recommending mobile applications but also a community that will allow mobile application developers to communicate with each other without fear of retribution.
