    I had mixed feelings on why everyone was still hiring. Is Android growing that much or... is it still not understood after all these years? By now everyone and their Uncle should be able to whip out a world class app. Is this not true? Please send comments to [masked].

      You forget, "we're hiring!" is the new "we're really successful, we swear, please buy us / our stock." Pay more attention to which companies have actually hired people vs. just saying they are as a success signal / stealth ad.
