I'm interested in looking at developing an application for android and iOS devices for a social media site.
Which operating system do you suppose would be best to initially launch the application on?
Looking particularly at the comparisons of the various positives and negatives of app development on Android and iOS?

    Hi! Here is some information for you:

    Android. Google brings Android users an opportunity to get a device that's ready for work. It's facilitated by a rich variety of integrated Google services (such as Search, Maps, Docs, News, Talk, Now, Google+, and much more). There are multiple features that can be brought to or used in custom mobile apps. These include Android Beam technology (based on NFC), bi-directional and vertical text support, Wi-Fi Direct and external display support, expandable notifications and widgets, geolocation, in-app payments, social media integration, and more.

    iOS. Apple's OS has always been known for a simple and intuitive user interface. The latest iOS6 gives an updated and improved set of standard features, still lacking multitasking. iOS requires a number of Apple products to run and synchronize its ecosystem, where Mac is the core. Apple constantly brings in new features for software developers. Notable ones include iCloud storage, Passbook integration, geolocation, in-app payments etc. All of these can be implemented in your applications.

    The Apple store currently offers 700,000 apps, 250,000 of which are available for the ipad. Most developers prefer to develop games for iOS before they develop for Android.

    I'd go iOS if you're certain you want to develop on that platform. Android users for whatever reason don't really download apps compared to iOS users.

    Plus iOS (and Windows) have a review process. If it passes Apple's, then easy to port to Android. But if you do Android first, and have to make modifications for Apple, it means you'll (most likely) have to update the Android app for consistency.

    Warning - Apple's review process is irritating and unintentionally quite funny (especially after a glass of wine).

    I would develop for both if you can, but if you have to pick one I'd go for iOS. There are much more people using the App store on iOS compared to Google Play, so you'll get much more downloads and no exposure. The only downside is that a fee is required to publish an app, ans you have to wait while they review the app unlike Android.

    Are you going to charge for your app? If you look at it, iOS users are more willing to pay for apps compared to Android users. I believe that most major apps launch with iOS first. This does not imply that iOS is superior to Android but this should be considered because targeting iOS users has lesser problems to deal with.

      Could not agree more. Android is probably much better than iOS, but most of the popular apps are/were launched in iOS first.

      So if you are thinking about app building, start with iOS.

      yep, one consideration is smart phone screen size, with my galaxy note3 i have enough screen to navigate normal web pages no problem, something that postage stamp screen iphones struggle with and need native apps.

      I think the trend will continue w/ larger screen phones, apple has been inching up a 1/4" at a time, in a couple years they will have caught up. LOL.

    If you're serious, then obviously iOS is your first choice.

    If you just want to play around for fun then try Android (it's cheaper to get started and apparently easier to programme). If you're going to build a successful social media app (like everyone else wants to) then you will have to develop for iOS then port to Android if it's a success. Going "backwards" from Android to iOS will be a pain as someone already mentioned above. The phone saturation is about 50/50 (with Android starting to lead last I checked) but as for apps - iOS is where the pros live.

    That's what I reckon anyway.

    iOS apps make far more money than Android, but Android is destroying the market at the moment. Sales projections for next year have 50 percent of all computer devices marked as tablets with 65 percent of these sales being projected to be Android devices.

    Also, in the 3rd quarter of this year, Android dominated with 81 percent of all mobile units shipped. Android powered 211 million units out of 261 million units shipped. iOS in comparison had only 16.9 percent of the sales during that quarter. While people make more money on apps for iOS, it seems like Android is beginning to dominate the market more and more.

    hi claudia,

    its no wonder that apple simplifies a lot the development of any app to be uploaded to its marketplace..if u are very talented and expert on handling with coding..there should not be any problem to select ios vs android..just keep in mind that with android..maybe you wiill be forced to adapt some features of the app to different mobile devices as u know android is widely used on various sort of smartphones and tablets!! so i would go on the ios path to start out and once you get some money and background on the business.. just jump right into the android platform!!

    hope this clears u up a little on your concern!! good luck Claudia!!

    First thing you have to do is to identify where your target audience are, which country are you targeting, platform, demographics etc matters first...if you are looking mature markets like US then iOS have better placed and if you targeting developing nations like china, india then android may score better....again ultimately the importance should be given to the outcome, functionality and user friendlessness, it may be easy to develop an app in particular platform but what if your TG is in some other platform......

    Hello,
    Both platforms are best and having strong ground grip on app development market. But at initial level, when you going to start developing then start form Android. Because it is open source and many resources available which helps you in app development. Once you create your foundation in app development then switch on to iOS app development. And if you want to choose particular platform both of them as per my review go for Android.

      I think both are excellent OS's - I use both daily.

      My concern with Android, and the complete opposite to Apple off course, is the profitability of the hardware supporting it. If you're choosing an Android device, it might be worth doing your research before choosing a manufacturer. Indeed whilst Samsung will be around this time next year - they're a huge conglomerate off course - a bunch of other brands probably won't be.

      HTC for example could be sold or broken up in the near future. The same could be applied to other loss making manufacturers, which make up the majority of the market. Fortunately, for Google and Android, low cost Asian brands like Huawei appear to be saving the day.

    First off you need data. Which country will you be targeting ? Free or Paid app ? What is the competition on both platforms for an app similar to yours? Get specific download info for social media apps to see how they are doing. There are already a bunch BTW !
    If it is a paid app it will more than likely do better on iOS, however it is more expensive to advertise for. In the USA iOS is doing great. Android does well in many countries and does well in the USA, but iPhone users in general spend more money.

      If your budget is not much limited, cross platform is the best decision. First you need to decide on the target audience, if your project requires both platforms, PhoneGap is what you need.

    Users of iOS tend to spend more money on average but Android has a larger user base and it's growing rapidly. So if you're going for a premium experience, it may be a better idea to start off on iOS. But if you're going to be ad supported, Android would probably be the better choice.

    Either way, both ecosystems are massive and you can't really go wrong regardless of which one you choose to launch on first.

    I couldn't agree more. Android is better than IOS.
    Aside from the reasons above, in terms of availabilty, Android also kicks off more. These are Many phones and tablets, including Kindle Fire(modified android), LG, HTC, Samsung, Sony, Motorola, Nexus, and others more than ios.

    Also, look at the following in terms of crashes per apps (acc. to Forbes)

    Android is well known for its customization, as it is a open media source it gives users to install a no of application. If I talk about ios then it is known for being quick, clear and secure. So if you need future advancement in your application then Android may be an option for you.

    I would like to share that users of android are more than IOS apps. So you if you develop application for both OS then its good to provide a choice to your users to use this application in their IOS and Android all devices.

    It's important to note that while Android has greater market penetration, they also have greater hardware/software fragmentation (more difficult to develop for the whole market). Android users also, on the whole, spend far less money than iOS users.
