Android doesn't have any good Creative or Productive apps?

No good Android Apps?

Seriously, isn’t there any good productivity apps for Android[1]?
I mean, if you search on Youtube for android text editors for example, there is almost any! The only videos there is about Android is customizations, settings, hacks and benchmarks…

I’ve got a tip about a Markdown[2] editor for Android called Flick Note and I wanted to see it in action, so I did a search for it on YouTube and come up with zero results….

Huge difference to iOS[3]. If you search for text editors for iOS for example, you get hundreds, or thousands of videos!

And that is just one example…

Same thing when searching for ”blogging on Android”, almost no good videos shows up, where same search for iOS gets a lot of results.

GTD[4] is a tiny bit better, but not much. Almost no professionally made GTD apps. Mostly amateur developers.

And music making apps for Android is a no go. A total empty category…

I am seriously worried about this… Android doesn’t have any productive, creative apps at all… The one they have is very amateurish…

The only creative apps that look a bit professional is the ones from Google and they are nothing what I want and are used to. I am used to much better apps than that..

I am about to start testing Android phones and then I want the same high quality apps as I have on iOS, but Android doesn’t seem to have any. Only consuming apps and ”fiddle with settings” apps… And I am totally non-interested in customizations, settings, hacks, widgets and rooting and all that stuff.

And using a stylus (S-Pen) on the Galaxy Note II is totally non-interesting too. I mean, what can you really do with your handwritten notes and drawings? Nothing. You can watch them in the specific app and nothing more. Styluses is for the 90´s.

What’s the point with Android then? What are you doing with your Android phone really? I am not playing games at all, I mostly create stuff, and sometimes consume media. So maybe Android is nothing for me then?

Or am I totally wrong and there is some hidden and not so used productivity apps that I have missed? But why doesn’t anyone blog about them or create videos about them then?
