Seriously, we’re talking about $10-30K systems, you think spending $500 on a basic iPad is too expensive? Even if it’s the only app you load on it it’s cheap. A $150 android tablet from some OEM in China with no build quality oversight is a developers worst nightmare – so many companies like A&H have concentrated on the iPad for no better reason than they know exactly what they’re building for. It might not be the best, or indeed the cheapest, but in 3 years they’ve only had to consider 2 hardware variations, and a couple of OS changes.
I use Apple products purely for their compatibility – I bought an iPad just for MixPad, and while I’ve got lots of other stuff on there too, I’d have been happy with it purely for that job alone – its paid for itself a hundred times over as far as I’m concerned.
