I tried that and managed to avoid iOS for several years. Unfortunately 
clients demanded iPhone compatibility and I couldn't convince them 
otherwise. So here I am, realizing all over again what a pain it is to 
develop on that platform.

The only good thing was that iPhone screen sizes were consistent, but they 
took that away too.
