A “sizable number” of developers have complained that the Android tool kit is “plagued by coding errors” reports the Wall Street Journal, although the article only quotes two. “Functionality is not there, is poorly documented or just doesn’t work. It’s clearly not ready for prime time,” said Adam MacBeth, who earlier this year helped found mobile software start-up MergeLab.” As is pointed out, Android is new — Google (NSDQ: GOOG) describes it as an “early look” and said it is incorporating feedback into the next release. Rick Genter, a professional software engineer who is writing an Android application in his free time, said that Android was no more buggy than other software at such an early stage. I guess Android’s problem is that people expect a lot from Google, and those expectations were raised even higher by Apple’s (NSDQ: AAPL) technologically impressive entrance into the mobile market.
