iPhone Facebook developer calls Android 'hideous'

Apple is 'Big Brother' and Android tools are 'Horrendous'

Is that why the two platform's apps are so different?

There’s something of a disparity between the official Facebook app on both iPhone and Android. The iPhone version of the social networking site, for reasons that have been unknown until now, has a certain sheen that’s lacking in the Google Android iteration.

Now we know why. Joe Hewitt, the man who develops the mobile apps for Facebook, has been on a tweet rampage, lambasting the Android development process for being hard to use. In one of his tweets, Hewitt said:

"Android tools are horrendous, OS is hideous…” It’s not the first time he’s blasted Android. Previous tweets read: "Once a day or so it hits me that I am writing Java, and I cry a little,” and "The more I work with Android the more it reminds me of Windows...as in, it's really flexible, agnostic, and developer-friendly, but also really sloppily designed."
Hewitt’s Twitter rampage isn’t entirely one-sided, though, as he’s referred to Apple in a negative light a few times. That first tweet ended with “…but the absence of big brother telling me what to do gives it a slight edge." He has gone on record in the past as saying that he is "Philosophically opposed to the existence of their review process."
