Android or iOS whats better? Are you confused? Don't be because you are at the right place.

Android vs iOS

  1. 1. Are You Confused?
  2. 2. Dont Be!
  3. 3. Because You are at the right Place!
  4. 4. Let the Battle Begin!!
  5. 5. App Downloads Here’s a fun fact for mobile developers: As of the past three months, Android is the best place to angle for more app downloads. According to the App Annie Market Index, Q2 2013 metrics show that Android beats iOS by 10 percent in number of applications downloaded. However, Apple’s App Store still beat Google Play on one very important metric: the App Store pulled in 2.3 times as much revenue as Google Play. When it comes to internationalization, the U.S. and China make up around 40 percent of all app downloads for iOS. Japan is gaining speed, but Russia is a newer contender for a top-three spot in worldwide downloads. The country has climbed six spots in App Annie’s country rankings year over year. Russia maintains a top-five rank for Google Play, along with the U.S., India, South Korea, and Brazil. ―This growth put Russia in the unique position as the only other country besides the United States in the top five countries by downloads for both the iOS App Store and Google Play,‖ App Annie reps noted. And interestingly, Japan is a leading country in revenue for both iOS and Google Play, reflecting the country’s long-standing digital culture of pay-to-play on mobile devices. Not surprisingly, the gaming category swept both the App Store and Google Play in number of downloads and revenue generated.

  7. 7. Which is better for developers?  Programming Language Used The Android OS uses mainly Java, which is the common programming language used by developers. Hence, developing Android gets that much easier for most developers. The iPhone OS uses Apple’s Objective-C language, which can mostly be unraveled by app developers who are already familiar with C and C++. This being more exclusive, may become a stumbling block for developers who are not too proficient in other programming languages.  App Development Platform Android offers developers an open development platforms and allows them the liberty to usethird-party tools for app development. This helps them play around with many features of their app, adding more functionality to them. This is vital to the success of this platform, which comes with an impressive range of mobile devices. Apple, on the other hand, is pretty restrictive with their developer guidelines. The developer here is given a fixed set of tools to develop apps and cannot use anything outside of those. This would eventually curb his creative skills to a large extent.
  8. 8.  App Approval The Apple App Store takes 3-4 weeks for app approval. They are also finicky and place many restrictions on the app developer. Of course, this factor has not deterred the several hundreds of developers approaching the App Store every month. Though Apple also offers an open API using which developers can host the app on their site, this is not very effective, as the app cannot get even a fraction of that exposure outside the App Store. The Android Market, on the other hand, presents no such stiff resistance to the developer. This makes it very convenient for the Android developer.  Payment Procedure iOS developers can earn 70% of the revenue generated from the sales of their app in the Apple App Store. But they have to pay an annual fee of $99 to gain access to the iPhone SDK. Android developers, on the other hand, only need to pay a one-time registration fee of $25 and can earn 70% of revenue of the sales of their app in the Android Market. They can also feature the same app in other app marketplaces too, if they so wish.  Conclusion In conclusion, both the Andriod OS and the Apple iOS have their own pluses and minuses. Both are equally strong contenders and are bound to rule the app marketplace with their own strengths and positives.
  9. 9. Apple's iOS Throughout the years, iOS hasn't really undergone a major change. Since Steve Jobs first unveiled iOS back in 2007, the interface and aesthetics has stayed relatively the same. That all changed with iOS 7. The inception of the transformation iOS has undergone started with the death of Steve Jobs. At the time, everyone went berserk because no one knew what Apple would do without their driving force and co-founder. Tim Cook took the reigns, but Wall Street and tech pundits were lukewarm on him. It wasn't until Phil Schiller was essentially fired by Cook that people started to realize that Apple, and their mobile technology, would be going through a major change. The rebirth of iOS 7 is evident from the Welcome screen. iOS 7 starts with a plain white screen that just says "Welcome to iOS 7." That's it. Quite contrary from the skeumorphism — a design style favored by Schiller and Jobs — which essentially models one's digital life to mirror reality. For instance, in iOS 6, the Calendar app actually resembles a calendar. But, in Jony Ive's "flat" iOS 7, the Calendar app takes a minimalist approach, ditching the leather and opting for a cleaner look. As an iOS user from since before I can remember, the change is definitely welcomed.
  10. 10. Google's Android Despite iOS 7's differences, Apple is definitely playing from behind when it comes to the user interface. It seems like iOS 7 is just an amalgamation of Android and Windows Mobile's extremely flat operating system. Apple's new parallax effect makes it seem like the icons are jumping out of the screen, but Android's Jelly Bean has had that effect since it's inception. The thing is, Apple has a unique ability to take the best features of other platforms and convince users that they're "innovative" ideas. A flat operating system isn't remotely innovative or groundbreaking — it's been around for awhile — which is why Android wins this round. Winner: Android! While iOS may look flashier and nicer, Apple's essentially copying the best of Android and Windows Mobile.
  11. 11.  Although Google does update Android frequently, some users may find that they do not receive the updates on their phone, or even purchase phones with out-of-date software. Phone manufacturers decide whether and when to offer software upgrades. They may not offer an upgrade to the latest version of Android for all the phones and tablets in their product line. Even when an upgrade is offered, it is usually several months after the new version of Android has been released.  This is one area where iOS users have an advantage. iOS upgrades are generally available to all iOS devices. There could be exceptions for devices older than three years, or for certain features like Siri, which was available foriPhone 4S users but not for older versions of iPhone. Apple cites hardware capability as the reason some older devices may not receive all new features in an upgrade.
  12. 12. Device Selection  A wide variety of Android devices are available at many different price points, sizes and hardware capabilities.  iOS is only available on Apple devices: the iPhone as a phone, the iPad as a tablet, and the iPod Touch as an MP3player. These tend to be more expensive than equivalent hardware using Android. Call Features  Android allows the user to send one of a number of self-composed texts as auto replies when declining a call.  iOS’s phone app has many abilities, including the ability to reply to a phone call with a canned text message instead of answering, or to set a callback reminder. It also has a Do Not Disturb mode. Messaging  Android allows users to log onto GTalk for instant messages. iOS does not offer a native way to chat to non-Apple users. Users can message over Apple users using iMessage or use apps from Google for GTalk and Microsoft for Skype. Video Chat  GTalk on Android can also be used for video chat, allowing users to chat over either 3G or Wi-Fi. iOS uses Facetime, which can place video calls over both 3G and WiFi. However, it only allows users to communicate with other Apple devices.
  13. 13. Voice Commands  iOS uses Siri, a voice-based virtual assistant, to understand and respond to both dictation as well as spoken commands. Siri includes many features, such as reading sports scores and standings, making reservations at restaurants and finding movie times at the local theater. You can also dictate texts and emails, schedule calendar events, and interface with car audio and navigation.  Android offers a similar assistant, Google Now, which features the above abilities, plus can keep track of your calendar and give verbal reminders when it is time to leave. It allows for voice search and dictation. Maps  Apps like Google Maps, Waze and Bing are available for both iOS and Android. When Google released its maps app for iOS in December 2012, the iOS version surpassed the version available for Android in terms of features, design and ease of use. The Android version is not expected to stay behind. Apple's own mapping app, which is bundled with every iOS device, was widely panned when it was launched with iOS 6. Web Browsing  Android uses Google Chrome as its web-browser, while iOS uses Safari. Both Internet browsers are similar in quality and abilities and Google Chrome is also available for iOS. Safari is not available for Android. Mobile payments  Android uses Google Wallet, an app that allows for mobile payments. Some Android phones are equipped with an NFC chip (near-field communication) that is used for making wireless payments simply by tapping the phone at the checkout counter. This service integrates with Google Wallet but is not available on all Android phones or wireless carriers.  iOS offers Passbook, an app that collects in one place tickets, reward cards, and credit/debit cards. There are no mobile payment features in iOS.
  14. 14. • Android’s applications are isolated from the rest of the system’s resources, unless a user specifically grants an application access to other features. This makes the system less vulnerable to bugs, but developer confusion means that many apps ask for unnecessary permissions. The most widespread malware on Android is one where text messages are sent to premium rate numbers without the knowledge of the user, and the sending of personalinformation to unauthorized third parties. As it is the more popular smartphone operating system, it is more likely to be the focus of attacks. • Malware writers are less likely to write apps for iOS, due to Apple's review of all the apps and verification of the identity of app publishers. However, if an iOS device is jailbroken and apps installed from outside Apple's store, it can be vulnerable to attacks and malware.
  15. 15.  Android is integrated with Facebook, allowing users to update their statuses or upload pictures from many apps, and to pull contact data from their Facebook friends.  iOS is also fully integrated with Facebook, allowing users to update their status and upload images from various apps, sync their contacts with Facebook, and have their Facebook events automatically added to their iOS Calendar. iOS now offers much deeper integration with Facebook and Twitter because of how tightly it is weaved into core apps on iOS.
