Are Apple Aps better than Android?

20 replies
I am doing some research on Mobile Apps and as it is not an area I have got a handle on yet I'd like to open a discussion from fellow Warriors to hear what you think.

Is it a case of being better or worse or just more popular or less popular?

Also which platform makes it easier to create Apps?

You views, experiences and advice would be really welcome.

    Android Apps are easier to get into market. Apple is stricter on it's requirements of an App to get it into the Apple Store.
    You have to pay a yearly $100 Developers license to Apple before submitting an APP.
    Android no such fees.

    Launch an Android APP first, then if it's successful produce it on the iOS platform.

    Hi
    Android apps have got much more advantages over the apple apps. Here if we go for some benefits of android apps, then the list continues long.
    * There are fewer restrictions in android apps.
    * You can choose default apps in the android web browser.
    * This has got support for much apps stores
    * Android welcomes the support of SD card, thus has better storage space than the Apple

    So it is now up to you, to decide which is better .

    Monetization-wise, iOS is definitely more dominant. The figures are much bigger, the market-share is still being dominated by iOS although there are more Android users and [as I believe] more Android apps+games.
    As I see it - Android is definitely the future - it will pass iOS soon.

        iTunes has 370,000,000 credit cards on file.

        If you created 1 app that cost $.99 and only 1% of those people liked it, would $3.7 Million be a nice profit? Sure would be for me.

        Go iOS. Pay the $99 to get into the club. It's worth it.

    Making some app that bring you revenue is not easy for either platform. Sure publishing your app over Play Store is comparatively easier than that of iTunes.
    Codes for building apps are 80% same for both Android and iOS.

    If you are making an app that is paid or you are offering something to user then prefer iOS platform, as in many researches it was found that people who uses iOS devices are more likely to spend bucks compared to those of Android users.

    Apple has almost everything that android has Apps wise plus more. the
    However, I like Android because it is a free source. you get free app, customize everything in your taste, Apple is much more restricted, you need to jailbreak Apple to get any customization done.

    In terms of quality, I would say Apple has a slight edge in that category.

    Also, according to a survey from Mobile Marketing Watch (Mobile App Developers: iOS is the 'Highest Priority Platform' | Mobile Marketing Watch) iOS is the highest priority platform.

    Personally though, I'll give Android a chance as I just recently bought a Nexus 4.

    You really need to look at market share if you are building apps.

    Android recently overtook Apple in units sold so if I were serious about creating an app I would be looking to publish on both platforms.

    Having said that, the smarter things to do is to build and roll-out your idea on just the one platform, see how things go, if it takes off you can then go back and roll it out on the other platform.

    I would never go 'all-in' with building versions for different platforms right from the beginning until an idea was tested and the market had proven to me they wanted it.

    I personally love the android market. Apple... meh. I've made some decent money in the past from Android... and by the time I gave up, Apple finally approved the app.

    I am not in that market anymore, but I still harbor very negative feelings about Apple.

    As said before, Apple users are paying more, but there are much more Android users. If you are thinking about getting in to the mobile business, you have to make an app for both platforms. There isn't a better one. For the look and feel they can be the exact same.
    The creation of the apps is also the same. For an iOS app, you have to have experience in Objective C programming, for an Android app you have to know Java programming. And of course there are plenty of online solutions, where you can make your app without a single line of code for both platforms.
