Apple vs Android App Development – Sunshine Coast

Throughout history and many stories, the struggle is always between two sides. Good and evil. The light and the dark. When it comes to mobile app development there are also two sides, Apple or Android. Am I saying that one of them is evil? No. That was a red herring to make the point that most stories forget about the best part. Between the light and the dark, there is the grey and that is where JavaScript app development lives.

Sure, you can develop mobile apps for iPhone iOS. We’ll call them the light side, not because I think they are good but because they love to put white plastic on everything. If you develop an iOS native app and you will make an app that roughly 35 percent (As per Statista at the end of 2016/17 financial year) of smartphone users will use. Of course, Apple will charge you for the privilege.

You can develop your app natively for Android and get 64.7 percent (As per Statista at the end of 2016/17 financial year), which Google will also charge you the privilege for.

Then there are those that say you could create an app for the 0.4 percent of users on an Windows phone. That wouldn’t be called light, dark, or grey. It would be called a waste of time.

The idea is to be in the grey area and create hybrid apps that are created using javascript. The Major benefit of using a hybrid app is its lower cost. This way I can create just one app and it works on all phones. Yes, even Windows.

It can still use a camera, phonebook and GPS. It can also update itself on fly. Sure, you still have to pay Google and Apple for the right to put your app in their app stores, but at least you only have to create and update on app. The grey area wins in the end.
