How To Choose The Right Platform For Mobile App Development

  • August 13, 2020

The most profound decision to design and hence release a mobile application in the market depends on the choice of platform. This will be further backed by budget, demographics, region and cause.

For Native Platform, the first segregation needs to be between Ios and Android. Ios is a closed platform with complete control over the apps released or the programming language used. For android, it has been recorded as the top mobile development platform across the globe. With android, its easier to reach out to a larger user base and can be accessible across various devices too! Java in Android enables to mark the threshold to development at a minimal mark. The development of android based apps are possible in different OS like Windows, MAC OS and Linux as Android SDK is accessible almost everywhere!

Cross Platform apps are an amalgamation of HTML5 and native plugins. Its power packed with diversity of supported devices, several UI frameworks and is known by its popular feature of coded once but run everywhere!

Quick Tips:

Native Platform should be ideal if you:

  • Want to spend less on testing
  • Want to develop custom solution
  • Want to provide the finest user experience

Whereas, Cross-Platform apps should be preferable if:

  • Cost is crucial
  • You need to develop a demo app
  • UI need not be sophisticated
  • There is any need for multi-platform mobile development

Key Things to keep in mind

  • Demography vs Geography – If your application has a target audience based in US, Ios is favourable, android for European regions, in Asia its country specific. For example, in India and China, Android is preferred over iOS. Blackberry still is in demand for middle-east. The age group matters too! Like young users will tend to use more of Android!
  • User Behaviour and Expectations – The user behaviour changes based on OS as well as locations. Generally Android users do not tend to spend money towards in-app purchases or buying apps, whereas Apple users are more supportive towards spending on applications!
  • User Behaviour and Expectations – The user behaviour changes based on OS as well as locations. Generally Android users do not tend to spend money towards in-app purchases or buying apps, whereas Apple users are more supportive towards spending on applications!
  • Cost – Did you know that Apple charges 100$ for buying a developer account which is mandatory to submit your app in the apple store? Google Play however charges 25$ for the same. These costs should be considered in your budget while deciding upon the right platform.
  • Adherence – Did you know Apple doesn’t accept apps that crash or has any empty iAd banners? There are some other protocols which app developers need to adhere by to have the app presented in Apple store. Also Apple takes about 10 days to validate an app! Similarly, Android too has its own guidelines.
