What generally happens is you are eager to get your idea that you have come up with shaped into an app through Mobile App Development Services and you want it tested across all the platforms available. Now the question arises, is this how it should be done? I think not. Let’s discuss.
It’s a bit more complex than it seems. So, looking at it by breaking it down would perhaps address the question in a better way.
Android is hands down, the biggest and the most popular mobile OS in the whole wide world. Android is generally concentrated in the regions where the income is low and the nation is in the developing stage. On the other hand, iOS is popular among high-income individuals that spend more on apps. According to a research, the market share of Android in 2017 was around 85% as opposed to iOS’s 15%.
Android, being the most popular, has a different approach to the apps. It has a bigger number of apps that support af while iOS apps come with a price tag on the app store. Although, the surveys indicate that the iOS apps generate more revenue than an Android app. Making iOS attractive for certain businesses.
Studies show that the iOS users are majorly using the newest version of the operating system while with the android, they are scattered all over the place. Less than 20% of the android users are on the latest version while on iOS, 95% have the latest updates. This means that when Android App Development Services are developing an app, they need to spend more time on testing the app on different devices.
Android is known to offer more flexibility than iOS since it’s open source. So developers are prone to experimentation more on Android than iOS. This is known fact that there are things you can do on Android and not on iOS. So, your app might not work as smoothly as on android if you opt for iOS App Development Services.
Since Android has better access to the developing nations and that synchronizes with your target audience, then you have to choose android app first. Also, if your app involves tweaking with the operating system, you need to go for android.
iOS, on the other hand, has more loyal yet small audience but they can serve your purpose well. For instance, with your retail app, you can do really well on iOS as compared to Android. Reason being is that the iOS users tend to spend more on the apps than anyone.
The best way to go about this particular issue is to actually make an app for one platform and later move to the other according to your business needs.
