There's so many more devices that I need to plan for than I had originally anticipated.  I didn't know so many Android phones / tablets had come out in the last year.

Testing to make sure stuff comes up on all of them is going to be a pain.  Hopefully tablets stick to 7 and 10 inch models.

I guess I'm going to have to include some sort of money-back if we can't get it to run on your Android device type of guarantee.  With how painfully slow the new virtual device manager / emulator is, I'm probably going to have to test, at most, to see if something actually shows up on the test screen.

I wonder how other app makers do it. 

Some questions about this for you all though:

How would you all feel if you bought a game for your phone and had to send an email to the creator to get something small fixed? 

Would you bother doing it? 

Would you prefer to just be able to get your money back?


  1. yea thats one of the hardest things to do as an ap programmer is keeping up to date with all the lastest hardware so you can program to accomodate it D:

  2. It depends how eager I am for the game. If I really want it, I would email, yes.

  3. If an app doesn't work for me I usually don't spend much time on it. There are tons of others out there.

  4. personally yes, I would prefer money back, if it's an A or B bug yeah.

  5. I think it would be nice if you actually get a response when you mail for a fix. Once I brought a book for javascripts and it was full of errors.
    But they can't update YOUR copy of the book, so in that case I would rather have had my money back.

  6. nice blog, really enjoy reading it, keep up the good job
