All mention of X-Plane for Android has been removed from their site, now only the iOS and Palm Pre versions are listed. According to their facebook page, this is their response to someone asking if it was coming anytime soon:
X-Plane by Laminar Research Sadly, no. At this point, we're considering it postponed indefinitely. If/when we get news, we'll certainly post it here and on the official site. Wednesday at 9:50pm ·
Apparently, they are blaming it on issues with the Marketplace. Funny, because hundreds of other devs seem to be capable of using the Marketplace with no problems. I don't know how the Marketplace works, but I assume Google gets a cut of the profits; perhaps Laminar Research has a problem with this, or some other dispute with Google - in the end I don't really care, though; I am very mad about this. I was anticipating this app more than any other.
As much as I love Android, it's crap like this that might cause me to consider the iPhone 4 if it were to come to VZW. It seems like Android is always the underdog when it comes to getting good apps, even at this point almost a year after the Droid explosion started. At this point, you'd think everyone would have their Sierra-Hotel-India-Tango together.
So, what are other folks' thoughts on this?
