Even if you work solely within the world of iOS app development, you need to understand, at least at a certain level, Android app development. Most importantly, you need to have a handle on the differences between the limitations and functionalities that dictate what iOS app developers and Android app developers do. When it comes to app creation (and life), it is always wise to follow the advice of Imam Ali who wrote in his Nahj-Al-Balagha around 1500 years ago, “Knowledge is power.”
iOS App Development, Android App Development, the End User & CostThe first thing that Android and iOS app developers must keep in mind is the end user. It does not matter if you are building Android apps or Apple apps, you simply have to acknowledge your target audience, which is different for Apple and Android.
According to the company DDI Development, there are huge differences between Apple and Android users. The average Android user is a younger than 35-year-old male who makes between $50,000 and $100,000 a year. Odds are he works in Energy and Utilities or IT. Meanwhile, the average Apple owner is a female earning more than $200,000 annually in business, marketing, or the media. She is at least 35 years old. Finally, iOS users often adopt new technology quicker than do Android users.
Obviously, a 40-year-old woman making $200k has different desires and needs than a 30-year-old dude making less than $100k. These needs and desires need to be catered to in the Android and iOS app development markets as well as everywhere else.
Since there is a wide range of Android phones and other devices, the average cost of one of these devices is much less than the average cost of an iPhone. Both Android and iOS app development folk need to make sure they set prices that are in tune with their target market. The lower-end Android users are not likely to spend much on apps, while owners of the newest iPhones are.
iOS App Development, Android App Development, & Phone Design
Though iPhones and an Android phones sure look the same at first glance, there are some clear phone design differences that app developers of both brands must work with.
iOS App Development, Android App Development, & Ease of Creating
iOS apps are easier to create than are Android apps for two main reasons. First off, the coding language for Apple is less complex than are the coding languages that Android app builders must use. Secondly, as covered above, there are many more Android devices with all sorts of screen sizes and resolutions, while there are just a handful of Apple devices. Clearly, Android app creators face many more challenges than do Apple app creators.
iOS App Development, Android App Development: the Bottom Line
When it comes to eas of creating, catering to a wealthier market, and having a smaller set of criteria to deal with, Apple is the clear winner. Now, with that being said, there are plenty of opportunities in both Android and iOS app development. You just need to make sure you know the differences between the two operating systems so that you can leverage this knowledge into professional power.
