Your app development decision is accompanied with numerous questions, and one of the most difficult questions is, which mobile app development platform should you choose for your app? When this question is asked, a majority of the people answer it in the same manner as “Well haven’t decided yet let’s see…. Maybe Android…..or wait maybe iOS. I am not too clear really….. If you are asked this question, you will be answering it in the same way for sure. Deciding an ideal mobile app development platform is not an easy task.
Reading about the functionalities of iOS and Android, doesn’t give you full of the good, the bad, and the ugly part of each platform. When selecting a mobile application development platform, the app developers should evaluate the type of applications they want to build. It is not easy to develop an app, rather the developers are required to keep in mind numerous aspects and work accordingly.
With the evolving technology, a number of platforms have come up, and the extensive choices make the selection confusing, but selecting the best one that can satisfy your specific requirements is important, as it will ensure you to reach a wider audience base while maintaining and managing the unique needs of your organization. There are some factors that require your consideration while making the choice of an ideal platform.
The features of a platform play a vital role in selecting an ideal app development platform. Only a platform having adequate features to support a high performance is opted by the businesses. The platform should be intuitive and easy to learn so that the app developers can carry out the process with agility and ease. Also, the platform should support collaborative workflows with smooth operations, from development to testing, debugging, deployment, hosting and maintenance of the app. It depends on the app developer whether to develop native, web or hybrid. Both the native and the hybrid apps have their pros and cons, but native apps are more favorable. We have discussed this topic in one of our blog in detail. All in all native apps are the best choice.
The choice of app’s platform is influenced by this factor as well. It is important to keep in mind the target audience that you are making this app for, whether you are targeting the young generation, or you are targeting any certain category of the audience. The app developers, who can choose an appropriate technology to target and capture most of your customers at the right place and time, should be hired. It is of paramount importance to keep your target audience in mind when selecting the mobile platform. Thus, while choosing the appropriate platform to create an app, you need to know where most of the users are going to be so that you can capture them at the right place and at the right time.
The mobile app development platform can be deployed in two ways, as on-premises products or cloud-based services. On-premises solutions are resource-intensive and take longer implementation time, but turn up to be cost-effective in the long run. They offer better control over processes, security, and data protection. Conversely, cloud-based services are associated with easy access to a wide assortment of tools and technologies along with low startup cost. Thus, it depends on the developers, to decide the deployment of the app.
The choice of the users can be a strong factor, influencing the choice of the app development platform. The user’s choice varies from place to place, as it has been noticed that, the majority of the people living in the US, prefer iPhone. Thus, the choice may differ from country to country. So, if you are creating an app where more of the iPhone users are there, then prefer iOS, or if the majority of the users prefer Android, then go for the Android. You can have a third option as well, where there are mix users of Android and iPhone, in that case, you can opt for both. Therefore, the choice of the users can be an effective point to decide, which platform to be selected.
Every business aims at a low investment and high rate of returns. While deciding the platform, you need to keep in mind this aspect as well. It is vital to plan in advance and find out if the platform would fetch a reasonably good ROI for the business or not. Investing in an app is successful, only when you get the desired returns from the app. Not only the app development price should be earned back, but also you need to choose a platform that will yield a large profit. Thus, this is also a deciding factor for the business.
The businesses are required to keep in mind the above-mentioned points while selecting the app development platform. It is important to clarify, which platform you want for your app, either iOS or Android, or both. A business that wants to invest in a mobile application needs to be clear about, what it is expecting out of it. Thus, the app development platform highly depends on the need of your app. Both the Android and the iOS are suitable platforms, but the choice depends on your mobile app requirements.
