While I’ve been experimenting with lots of iPod applications I’ve come across what I think is going to be my number one bugbear. Some games handle it beautifully and some abuse their privileges completely.
You see I’m usually trying to review these apps while listening to something on the iPod. I’d like to be cool and hip and be able to say it was the latest single from someone or other but the truth is, being me, it’s just as likely to be the Archers podcast.
SOme applications, when I start them, switch off my music and make me lsiten to theirs, I’m sure they’re beautifully crafted (actually, often they’re not) but that’s not the point. I wasn tot listen to what I want to lsiten to – that’s the main reason for having an iPod after all.
So this is my plea- don’t force me to listen to your music – let me listen to my own!
