Why Developers Build Mobile Apps For iOS Before Android?
With the arch rivalry existing between Android and iPhone development companies, there is always evolvement of something that is new and fascinating in the market. Apple has provided an improved platform for the new and young developers to explore this iOS development tools by creating amazing applications. Increasing market of iPhone and iPad applications and the companies developing these apps growing fast, it is obvious that many fresher will opt for this as a career.
Also due to cut throat competitions between Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS which are the leaders in application development market, it becomes necessary to choose the correct option for career development.
The debatable question here is that should iOS development be employed as a first step to learn everything about mobile apps development or is it tough to develop an app directly for iOS which has some formal set of rules that are to be followed explicitly while developing. The application development on iOS has many advantages over the traditional Android or other simple applications development. Here are some of the reasons why mobile application developers choose iOS development for their business:
Why Build Mobile Apps For iOS Before Android
High-End Apps Development
With Apple devices having advanced functionalities and much higher processor speed along with huge storage it is permissible to develop applications which can occupy huge space on phone, having varied display systems. Also iPhone using people are implied to using small but feature rich applications which can be easily developed on iOS by following HIGs(Human Interface Guidelines) given for iOS development. Also iPhone and iPad are largely used by the business classes as well as these devices are creeping into the market among the young generations. So, accordingly social media and sharing apps can be developed to reach out for more number of audiences who are using iOS.
Ease of Compatibility
As the counterpart of Apple which is Android, is supported by large number of devices in the market, it becomes hard to develop user interface and other aspects of the applications that complement each and every platform. While in case of Apples the varieties of devices and the versions of iOS are always compliant with each other so as to give better results in terms of app utility to the end user. So it becomes easy for iOS application developer to focus more on development and functional part rather than worrying about the compatibility of the application on various devices.
Making Paid App- Increasing Profitability
As Apple devices available in the market are affordable not by many in the market, it becomes evident that those who can get these devices can surely afford the paid applications. But the most important thing to focus on while developing paid apps is that the utility of the application should justify the payment that is made for the app. So this becomes another advantage of making iOS applications so as to give monetary benefits to the app developers as well.
On a concluding note, it is advisable to make iOS application at the start-up to enhance the learning and also enable other benefits that persists with the iOS app development.
