5 Reasons Why You Should Switch to Android App Development (if You Haven’t Already)
There are so many Android devices out there compared to Apple’s and that is one of the major reasons why Android is now taking the lion’s share of the revenues.
In fact, it takes over 80% of the shares compared to Apple’s which is why it is nice to jump ship now.
Today, I am going to talk about some reasons why you should consider switching to the green team.
- Better App Customization
iOS app development is fairly limited because the programming language (SWIFT) and the framework that you’re going to use is fairly limited. Sure, you can implement as many features as you would like, but the level of customization is just not up to par with what Google is offering.
Google has just released a new version of its mobile app development framework that promises to make app development so much more streamlined. Not only that but the new programming language and developer framework allows you to customize your applications as per your specifications and all the changes can be seen in real time (during the development process). What’s not to love?
- Extends Global Reach
Just imagine this: every smartphone in the market today that is not owned or created by Apple runs an Android operating system. Just think about that for a second. Because of this, Android has more of a global reach as opposed to Apple. In fact, there are some countries that have already banned the sale if iPhone devices, which means that Android is taking over the smartphone industry.
- A More ‘Personal’ Experience
I know that there is a concern regarding Google’s Privacy and Security protocols. If you do not know, the concern was that the company is actively taking some data from your phone, but that is for a good reason.
You see, the company is making use of the data that they’ve collected to provide a more personalized experience. Suppose that you’re frequently using ride-hailing apps like Lyft or Uber, Google makes it a point to give you the most accurate locations possible thanks to the data they’ve collected from your phone. So, do not worry about this as this is done to help improve your overall experience.
- More Improved Voice Assistant
Siri is Apple’s very own voice assistant. For the most part, it is okay, but it doesn’t really rival Google’s offering.
Google has a far better voice assistant. It is pretty accurate and it also provides accurate results as well. And, since more smartphones are already having this feature, mobile app development using Google’s own voice assistant will become much more favorable for the developers.
- Easier Approval
Apple just employs stringent measures before your app gets approved. However, the same cannot be said on Google’s side.
The company still checks your application for security and all, but they are more lenient. So long as you do not veer away from their app creation guidelines, you should be good.
