Time to add a new feature in an Android app:-
Java code with basic layout to implement the feature - 1 hour
Polishing the layout - 30 mins
Time to fucking make the scroll view wrap around the text and not overflow in the dialog so that the buttons below are visible - 6-10 hours!!!

    You must be horrible with AS then. This does not take nearly that long. Learn a language and how to use the ide then rant.

    @crapped you're telling me you've never spent hours trying to fix a single view in Android? Then with all due respect, seems like you haven't really experienced Android yet

    @ganjaman I don't like to exaggerate but I literally spent hours fixing a scroll view yesterday. I don't know about the other dude commenting and checking his profile, he seems like an iOS dev. Maybe they don't have these problems in iOS. But yeah, if my 1 year spent on Android is anything, adjusting views just to your liking and making it look good in all screens and all situations is really really difficult!

    Text and buttons in one layout suck ass on android

    @crapped I have worked with Android professionally and I know Java well enough to train others that work on it as well as obviously working on it myself: the ide and the Android api both suck.

    But to be fair. All mobile development sucks.

    @ganjaman is it cuz ocaml? And what do you think about Reason? Been looking at those two options for a while. Trying yo justify me getting into ocaml other than for the sake of just doing it

    @AleCx04 never really had a chance to use reason, not a fan of the modifications they made to the language tbh

    @ganjaman i would have thought that it would give you superpowers with JS being that you already use ocaml.

    I am going to use Reason to justify Ocaml dev
