Meanwhile, a developer caught up in the crossfire also commented. Jobs cited the example of TweetDeck, a program used by people to access Twitter, to argue that Android fragmentation is a problem for app developers. After TweetDeck released its Android app recently, “they reported that they had to contend with more than 100 different versions of Android software on 244 different handsets. The multiple hardware and software iterations present developers with a daunting challenge,” Jobs said.
