Woz Says Windows Phone Apps More Beautiful Than iOS Or Android Apps

Steve Wozniak iPhone 4

Steve Wozniak is one of the founders of Apple Inc. He loves iPhone and its iOS operating system. However, Wozniak surprisingly feels that Windows Phone apps are “more beautiful” than their Android and iOS counterparts.

He jokes that Steve Jobs may have been reincarnated inside Microsoft.

Woz also revealed that he favored Windows Phone over Android, but that iOS was still his number one choice.

During a recent interview with A New Domain, Woz, who started Apple alongside Steve Jobs back in the late 70s, revealed how he felt about iOS and its rivals. Woz had good things to say about Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform, and insisted that his Nokia Lumia handset was his favorite device.

Just for looks and beauty, I definitely favor the Windows 7 phone over Android.

I’m kind of shocked on every screen — much more beautiful than the same apps on Android and iPhone. So I think that what Microsoft or Nokia did is that they went to some of the key app makers and got them to deliberately make specialized beautiful ones or they put their own themes on.

However, Woz carries two iPhones. One is on AT&T and the other one on Verizon. He says that it is still his number one device because its rivals just cannot compete when it comes to apps.

I did give my opinion that the Windows 7P phone had superior visual appearance and operation cues that were also more attractive. In my opinion, it sets the mark for user interface. I would recommend it over my Android phones given that it doesn’t yet have the breadth of apps.

Woz concluded by saying that Microsoft had made Windows Phone so great that it reminded him of “great Apple things,” and he wondered whether Steve Jobs may have been reincarnated at Microsoft:

I also surmised that Steve Jobs might have been reincarnated at MS due to a lot of what I see and feel with this phone making me think of a lot of great Apple things.

  1. You can’t really believe anything these people say. They are fighting each other over so-called patent infringements & Android are Apple’s main enemy. Both Apple & Microsoft have plenty to fear from Android, so Apple would use Microsoft to score points off them, wouldn’t they.

    Take a look on many forums & you’ll instantly recognize Apple employee posts thinly veiled as fanboyism attacking other platforms. They stick out like a sore thumb. Unfortunately, the story is old, we know Apple have beef with Android hence why their tactics are so obvious. It’s getting quite embarrassing, you would think people in big business would conduct themselves in a more grown up manner. Not to mention their childish, patronizing adverts.

    No platform is perfect, some are different, some are similar, this is all inevitable as they’re all pretty much aiming for the same goals & similar desgin briefs (smartphones, computing & media…). Perhaps Apple might one day realize that Joe Public might make their decisions based on how these companies conduct themselves? I own products from all three but I’m loathed to give more money to a bunch of cry babies. I think apart from the so-called infringements (debatable) Android have conducted themselves better. Microsoft are decent because of their ethics & Bill Gates’ work for charity, but so far Windows Smartphone hasn’t become the latest buzz, despite Wozniak’s insistence. Sorry, it takes more than that. That’s not to say Windows Smartphone won’t be the latest craze again, though.

    To me iOS is dumbed down for children & the elderly, like Fisher-Price. Maybe Apple have realized this so now they have to use Windows Smartphone to attack Android?
