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.
