App development Platform

How to choose an App development Platform?

The moment you think of getting an app developed, this is the question that constantly keeps you worried. Well, to end this worry; let me tell you that before you opt for any platform; know several things like as app type, competition prevailing in the market, app development complexity, available resources and technology etc affect your decision related to platform selection.

At present, there are four main operating systems available in the market viz. Google’s Android, Apple’s iOS, RIM’s Blackberry and Microsoft’s Windows Phone. The mobile app development is surrounded within these four.

Among these two, the major players that rule the app development world are Android and Apple iOS where the former has 84.71% of market share and the later has 13.1%. Even though Android’s market share is huge, Android developers are less wealthy as compared to iOs ones.

Basically, the first factor that affects your platform development decision is the “App Type”. This means if your app is meant for high class people then iOS is recommended; if it is for youngsters, teenagers, middle class people then Android is recommended.

Business based people mostly use iPhone and nearly 62% smart phone users have iPhone whereas 47% of business people use Android based phones to fulfill their business needs. However, if you are planning to develop a free game and need innumerable downloads then go for Android.

If you are going to make a paid app then opt for iOS; the reason is iOS apps are somewhat expensive then Android ones and the one who uses iPhone might be possessing credit card as well and hence they can easily pay for the apps.

Another thing is the “Type of Customization”; so if you want heavy customization in your applications then Android is useful for you as iOS seems to have lots of complexities when it comes to customization.

Last but not the least; your target market- To reach n number of people all at once; go for Android and if your app is only for executive people then go for blackberry; for quick and wide exposure; Windows is preferred the most but if you want to be famous around the universe then go for iOS.
