In this hi-tech age, no business can reach to wider audience without the help of the websites and social media profiles. Now, with more and more people using mobile devices ditching the giant desktop computers, a mobile app is now dominating the business market. The app development companies work for both android operating systems and iPhone Operating Systems while analyzing the hindrances like lack of developers, time and fund. Here comes another challenge – the dilemma of choosing from Android OS apps and iOS apps for developing.
It is only a matter of time for iOS apps to gain discoverability and profit, so that it can be developed on android platform for expanding audience. With this, the app owners can devise the features that have more demand and also include strategic features for Android system.
After setting the template of web app, API is created which connects the web app and mobile operating system together. The developer of any android app development company is well-versed in Java language and nowadays, many developers prefer Kotlin as it is exchangeable with Java information and helps in easier debugging of codes. The development is optimized in IDE or Integrated Development Environments which enhance completion of codes and helps in allowing performance crash tests while delivering great visual features.
Efficiency is ensured with android libraries namely ActiveAndroid and Eventbus, API interactions and app component communications.
The Pros include –great customer coverage in the rising markets of China, Japan, India, Mexico etc, easy launching with thorough guidelines, zero restrictions while launching alpha and beta version and availability of various customization and hardware integration. Moreover, these apps are discovered quickly on Google Play Store.
The Cons include –
Two code languages namely Swift and Objective-C are used by iOS App Development services to write codes in mobile apps. Learning Objective C is complex and still is prone to errors in mobile app development. On the other hand, Swift is advanced with high performing memory as well as simpler syntax. With new features released regularly, it is evident that Swift would soon dominate the other alternatives.
In spite of setting strict requirements for app developments, the task is facilitated by robust IDE. iOS Libraries like Realm and Hydra are extremely beneficial with IDE like App Code.
The Pros include –proper development process making the app stable (as iOS platform has no device fragmentation), app purchasing and in-app purchasing is easy and authentic toolkits under UI Standards help in time-effective development of interface without giving much effort.
The Cons include –
It can be said beyond doubt that the Android development platform is more popular than that of iOS as users of android OS is greater than iOS. However, if you analyze the revenue graph, you will find that Android platform is dominated by iOS platforms, especially for startup companies.
