    Android Apps not available for the iPhone

    Help me out. I'm tired of snarkie iPhone users saying, "It's not available on the Android." I would like a LONG list of apps not available on the iPhone.

    Here are a couple I use:

    Google Maps
    Gesture Search
    Google Earth
    Google Sky Map

    There must be more. What can you come up with?

    The iphone is an app machine. That is their forte. The droid does other things very well like customize and wifi tethering. I know a guy with a jail-broken iphone and he is tech savy. And he wants a droid because a jail-broken iphone can not touch a rooted droid.

    Google Maps and Earth is actually on the iPhone...

    Google Voice
    Live Wallpapers
    Google Navigation (Best thing about Android IMO)
    Voice Search (Voice Control on iPhone is terrible)
    Gameboid (almost emulator for that matter, for iPhone it must be jailbroken)
    Full Gmail Support (Labels and everything)
    Google Shopper (iPhone has similar apps but this is the best IMO)
    Gallery App on Android (2.1) is phenomenal
    Widgets
    Google Translate

    That's all I can think of, top of my Head

    My bad, I read the original post wrong. I thought he was asking for apps available not 'just' on the iPhone.

    I need more caffeine I guess

    Locale or, for that matter, any app that relies on running in the background to be useful.

    3rd party browsers aren't allowed by apple. (the best someone can do is open a safari window inside their app)

    For the most part, the only android apps that won't be on the iphone (or atleast have a pretty close counterpart) are apps that apple won't allow. So anything that duplicates functionality performed by a built-in apple app, (like music players, browsers, phone dialers, etc) or anything that needs to be able to multitask (like locale).

    Also, the iPhone has no answer for widgets, which are immensly useful IMO.

    You know whats funny? When you say something to an iphone user/fanboy like the iphone doesn't run widgets and doesnt multitask. You know what they say back? I don't care about widgets and dont need to multitask. You know what I say? That sounds like something someone with a phone who cant do those things would say. PWNED
