Regular Car Reviews: 1980 Dodge Aspen

Why is it that The Verge complains about the lack of tablet apps on the Play Store on almost every Android tablet they review yet their own app only works in portrait orientation and displays a phone interface on all tablets?

If you see the Verge's review of the Nexus 10, they complain about Rdio which doesn't have a tablet interface yet the Verge's own app has this same problem. If any Verge writers are reading this, then how about being part of the solution instead of being part of the problem and doing nothing about it? I think more and more developers are starting to build tablet specific apps or making their apps scale to tablets well, on the back of the Nexus tablets being so successful.

I can confidently say that (compared to maybe 6 months ago) on my Nexus 10, I have almost every app that I could possibly want which has a great tablet interface. Granted, I'd love to see more devs taking Android tablets seriously (especially in the games department), but I also feel that the Android tablet market has only just become serious with the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.

EDIT: Some great comments here. I just want everyone to keep in mind that I'm not defending the shortage of tablet apps on Android. There are a great many already available but we're far from being spoilt for choice. My point is that it's funny that on every review, the Verge writers complain about the problem while being part of the very same problem.
