Nowadays, a large number of companies re struggling to find the right platform to develop their application. As a game app developer, it is a very important decision to choose platform wisely, as the success of the application depends on it.

From a while now, everyone is aware that Android development takes longer time than iOS development. Many factors are responsible for this delay.

Here is the comparison between iOS App Development and Android Applications Development which helps the developer to choose their compatible platform:

Screen & Resolution:

While designing the application, it is important to consider the size and resolution of the screen. When the developer needs to choose the platform, screen resolution can help.

Android: The screen size and resolution play major role in the developing process on Android Platform. Due to different sizes and shapes, the developer needs to design an app accordingly so it can perform same functionalities on every device. The application must be visible same in high resolution as it was visible in low. It is difficult for the developer to accommodate a gaming application in multiple sizes.

iOS: There is no such problem exist in iOS app development. As Apple has introduced the limited range of devices and there is a slight difference in them, so iOS app developer easily develop an application which can run on every iOS devices without additional coding.

Hardware Support

Applications partly rely on the hardware they are intended to run on. Android and iOS are two main options in front of developers. As a developer, to make the user experience the same thing and in exactly the same way they wanted it to is the ultimate goal.

The difference between Android and iOS platforms in terms of hardware are:

iOS: The ecosystem of iOS has excellent devices and great operating systems. It keeps user up to date and connected with itself. There are a number of users who are ready to pay in their App store for the better experience. That’s why top-tier mobile developers prefer the iOS platform.

Android: Android developers need to test their application in various devices to make sure that the app would run with same functionalities and it’s design will also remain unchanged. After launching, the app or game leave some Android users disappointed as their smartphones are not compatible for that application.

In terms of hardware support, iOS is superior over Android as it is homogenous, and one-time fixing is needed here. It saves developers time and it is considerably easier to handle.

Revenue generated

Although Google Play Of Android and App Store of iOS shows and offers similar products, still, while downloading and revenue earning, some variations have been observed has been observed.

iOS: Recently launching of the iOS app of Facebook is expected more in favor of iOS app development which can impact the Gaming development sector. iOS platform is the best place to make money as iOS devices are expensive and its users are willing to pay for the better experience. Hence iOS revenue increases.

Android: Instead of developing only for Android platform. Developers and companies need to consider and go with cross platform. It would help Android developer to increase their revenue. Android developer earns more than Window Phone Developers. But less than iOS developers.

In terms of profits, developers earn 60% more money by creating their application on the iOS platform than developing on Android.

App Store Visibility

When it comes to launching or publishing an app, Android became an obvious choice of the developer.

Android: To publish the app on Google’s Play Store, developers need to create an account, log in and upload the apk of their app. It costs the one-time payment of $25 and within a couple of hours, the application gets live in the Play Store and people can start downloading it.

Android apps can be downloaded from any number of independent app stores such as Google Play, Amazon App Store.

iOS: Apple Store believes the higher standard of the application on it’s App store and maintains it always. It has caused problems for developers because there is the higher probability that the submission would be rejected.

iOS formally test the application by real time users before publishing it and charges annual fee of $99. It takes few days and still the publishing is not confirmed.

That’s why companies tend to choose android Platform over iOS to publish their app

Conclusion:

There is no fair way of comparison between this two platform- iOS App Development or Android Application Development. Each has its own strength and can make their developer comfortable. The companies should consider the factors according to their marketing strategies.

Proper selection of the platform is the very important aspect which should be considered first. Sometimes, cross-platform development approach can solve the confusion between these platforms. It is up to the developer and companies to choose it.
