I am a CS student and involved in Project MAXS and aSmack. I previously worked on GTalkSMS, but retired there to spend more time working on MAXS.

My Android handset is a Nexus 4 running CyanogenMod. I also have a Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet, also running CyanogenMod and an Kindle Fire with, you guessed it already, Cyanogenmod1 :-)

1Kudos to hashcode for his great work regarding CyanogenMod on the Kindle Fire).

comment Are there technical reasons why Android is not as smooth as iOS and can they be overcome?
This question only attracts low quality technical answers, because most people don't understand the complexity of such a software system. It starts with Android being an open system that needs to run on different hardware, from low-end to high-end, compared to iOS coming from the same manufacturer that also controls the hardware. In my opinion Android is just as smooth as iOS. And I don't see how this question is helpful to future visitors. I am pretty sure the company behind Android will ensure that it stays competitive if there would be a significantly drawback.

If you edit your question so that it has a meaningful title and doesn't ask for an app, but instead describes the problem you trying to solve (e.g. "How can I get a good route for many waypoints?"), then this question will be eligible for re-opening.

comment How can I get a good route for many way-points?
The problem you describe is known as the "Travelling Salesman Problem (TSP)" in computer science. Unluckily for you, this problem is NP-hard, which basically means that there is no algorithm known to solve it without trying all possible solutions and since the solutions space get's exponential bigger with every place you add, there are many solutions. To sum app: Even if there is an app that would calculate a route it either wouldn't be the optimal route or it would take extremely long to calculate it.

That's an excellent question. I suggest that you ask it as new question here.
