Getting Started With iOS Development

No comments

When Steve Jobs took the stage in Moscone West in January of 2007, he not only introduced the world to the iPhone. Many would argue that he also introduced the future of personal computing. Apple took a full-fledged functioning, 100% wireless computer and put it in our pockets, and simultaneously changed the way the world works, plays and communicates.

Though other operating systems like Google’s Android have since emerged to have greater market share due to a fragmented hardware/software model, Apple has created a product that consumers and developers both clearly see as being more valuable. Apple’s approach to integrating software with its hardware devices creates a powerful user experience combination that Android struggles to recreate on handsets from dozens of third party manufacturers.

So if you’re wanting to create the next great mobile app for consumers, iOS is a great platform to begin.

Developing For Android, The Most Popular Smartphone OS

No comments

It’s nearly impossible to talk about smart phones and the proliferation of such devices without hearing about Google’s Android operating system. Android is currently the most widely used smartphone operating system in the world, with over 1 billion Android devices activated as of September 2013. And as of November 2013, Android had carved itself an 80% slice of the global smartphone market pie.

And with a recent survey finding that over 70% of mobile developers currently write software for Android, there is no denying the immense popularity of the platform. If you plan to release a mobile application, you shouldn’t even mention the idea without also discussing your plans to develop for the impressive throng of Android users.
