Stick with Android disses Apple's first Android app, launches in Play Store to rave reviews


Earlier this week, Apple did what appeared to be the unthinkable a couple of years back: it launched its first Android app, although it's definitely not the Android app that people have been expecting. Called "Move to iOS", the Apple's first app for Android does what its name suggests, which is helping users switch from Android smartphones and tablets to iPhones and iPads. 

Insulted by the name and purpose of Apple's first Android app, Android fans quickly turned to bashing "Move to iOS" in the Play Store through one-star reviews. Funny as the text of some of these one-star ratings may be, a duo of Android app developers came up with a much better response.

A couple of Android devs called Jonathan Schiffner and Matthias Miro recently launched a rather useless but extremely funny app on the Play Store. Called "Stick with Android", the app encourages users to keep using Android and avoid switching to "another (worse) platform". The app itself doesn't really do anything. It consists out of a single button on an Android-green background. Click the "Click here to stay on Android" button and the app will launch a message that reads "Congratulations, you did it!”. 

Since the app was launched "Stick with Android" managed to get 5131 five-star reviews, and just 108 one-star reviews. At a rating of 4.9/5 from 5291 ratings, this is one of the best-rated apps in the entire Play Store. It looks like Android fans have a sweet spot for Apple bashing, but what else is new?

Well, at least he copied it himself, and didn't go all great artist on someone else's app like Apple did.

Childish and pointless. The drones leaving the reviews prove that.

Childish and pointless. The drones leaving the troll comments on Google, Motorola, and BlackBerry articles prove that.

You're the king of hypocrites.

You're the queen of picking fights and running after getting called out.

Says the little girl named Michelle. And running after being called out is definitely your thing, coward.

No princess you started this, I'm finishing it.

You couldn't finish a half eaten slice of pizza, much less this.

Considering that all of your comments/responses are just recycled, trolling gibberish, I'd say that you lost your touch a long time ago.

Google - violates privacy and abuses their power Motorola - you're just salty here since I have already decided to purchase a Style

It really makes me uncomfortable that you like to think about how I taste. You need to stop with this "salty" nonsense. And I believe that it's Apple that's under investigation by the Department of Justice and not Google. And just for the hell of it, I'm going to report what I wrote on comment 45 because it didn't really sink in. "Childish and pointless. The drones leaving the troll comments on Google, Motorola, and BlackBerry articles prove that."

Don't be salty and I won't call you salty. And I believe it's Google who has been accused of antitrust law violations and privacy invasion. Just because you're too incompetent to see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. And? You think I care if you do lol. Go on ahead and prove me right.

Google collects aggregate, anonymous data which they are up front about, and allow you to opt out of. Nobody abuses power like Apple.

Really so they've never shown favoritism for their failed social media platform? They've never abused their search results because they know what quality is? They've never forced users to use Google Plus?

"I have already decided to purchase a Style" It always amuses me that as much as you clearly have fun bashing Motorola, you keep buying their phones.

129. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Yes sniggly I use Motorola. I bash their questionable practices. It amuses me how you're still doing the Motorola thing again.

"Childish and pointless"… Describes pretty much anything you've ever said in the entirety of your existence.
