I have a Droid Incredible 2 – and I’m really enjoying it. I got an OTA update to 2.3 right about the time I was going to root it, so I thought, what the heck, I’ll get Gingerbread. It’s all I really wanted anyway.

Last week, at some point, the clock app disappeared. I noticed because the alarm stopped ringing. It didn’t really bother me, because sometimes I sleep through it — but then I checked and it’s … not there. I mean, in “Manage Apps” it’s there, with a size of 0, but it’s not the app drawer.

… There’s a bug that causes the clock app to randomly appear / disappear. And it’s been happening for about two months, based on the research I’ve been doing.
Someone on a forum said that if this happened on an iPhone, it’d be in all the newspapers. They’re right. iPhones are held to a different standard — and the standard should be the same. If Android wants to be taken seriously, then it’s time to get some real development going behind it.

And don’t give me that crap about a single platform versus many platforms (different phones, etc). You’re a distributor, you know your hardware. How come other ROMs are stable on YOUR hardware? Hmmmm ?
