Why Startups In The Apps World Need To Choose iOS Platform?by Rob Stephen getaprogrammer
This article seeks the attention of the startup appreneurs and suggests them to pick iOS platform for their first app because that is not only budget-friendly but pretty easy to develop. Read on to know why.
For every app owner, which one to choose for their app idea between the Android or iOS platform is a pretty difficult question. Both being an equally effective platform for a stellar and feature-rich application, there are several other aspects to contemplate to choose one. However, most experts and app marketers suggest going for a cross-platform development where the app’s targeted user base becomes much more and hence is highly profitable business-wise. But, there’s a bug budgetary requirement associated with cross-platform. So, for the budget conscious appreneurs, mainly the startups, it is prudent to stick to one platform and that is iOS. Why iOS? The following points will answer that.
#1 Budgeted Revenue Model
Undoubtedly, the market for iOS users is smaller than Android. While the former is concentrated only in big countries like the US, Australia, the latter has its spread in most markets in the Asia-Pacific region. So, predominantly, the Apple’s App Store churns out more revenue compared to Android Play Store despite having lesser number of apps because of in-app purchases and the concurrent policy of premium subscription. So, in a way, for startups who want to reap in considerable revenue earnings initially to cover their costs, iOS is the right option.
#2 Cost-effective development
While iOS app development is more meaningful for the startups and small owners is because of its cost-effectiveness, better fragmentation in development allows so. The app ecosystem for both the hardware aspects and software elements are controlled by Apple. It also includes the devices management along with their release cycles, which include the key iterations. This is a major plus point in iOS app development because that helps to address fragmentation issue involved in an app development. Thus, a major task of the app development vendor is reduced saving up the costs.
#3 Offer intuitive user-experience
Like Apple, the apps for the platform has the hallmark of exceptional user experience. Since its very start, the iOS devices have been experiencing augmented level performance because of consistent innovation. Thus, user-experience being at the forefront of everything for Apple, the iOS app ecosystem have also been progressing equally and hence getting an app for such a platform will promise a fascinating experience to the users.
#4 Better security
iOS being a legit platform for the developers that help them deliver extensively safe apps for the businesses by complying with Apple’s specified standards and regulations. Without a doubt, for business startups who look for the budgeted development environment and also want assurance of safety and quality of the product, iOS is the prior option.
#5 Limited range of devices
Compared to about thousand of Android devices, iOS mobile devices are quite limited to 20 types. So, when it is developing an app, considering all the devices, their configurations, screen sizes and resolutions is not at all towering task for the developers like the Android. Development for this platform is actually easy and quick because of fewer targeted devices.
iOS might not be the suitable choice for all businesses, the big ones who want to target globally and cross-platform may be the befitting option. However, for the first-time venturer with a restricted budget, limited time and resources in hand, iOS platform is the ideal choice. Its pre-crafted interfaces, few sophisticated devices, exceptional UX, agile development ecosystem and faster development process make it the ideal one for newbies in the apps world.
