It’s been almost 3 months since I made the switch from my iPhone to Samsung Galaxy S5. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my Samsung Galaxy, but the past few weeks have got me thinking whether I’ve made a huge mistake by switching from iOS to Android. In order to fully understand my dilemma, you first need to understand the reason WHY I made the switch, which makes this whole situation even more painful for me.
After almost 5 years, I’ve decided to give up and move on from my iPhone – more specifically iOS – and explore the new realm of possibilities with the Android OS. To be quite honest, it’s not even the iOS. I’ve just grown tired of the BS coming out of Apple, rehashing the same old products, and shoving it down the blind iZombie crowds’ throats – “Here, have this new iPhone 6, which is the same as the iPhone 5, except this one has a bigger screen.” – #Bullocks!
In this blog post, I’ll be attempting something that’s never been done before; or maybe it has and I just haven’t found a satisfactory answer to the Trillion Dollar question: iPhone Apps .vs. Android Apps – Which ones are better?
We have literally half the world, a generation of young and old folks divided in terms of which would they rather have – iOS Apps or Android Apps. I’ve tried Googling this question multiple times in hope of finding a definitive answer; and every time, I just ended up more confused and conflicted than when I started. The reason this question is so near and dear to my heart as an App Developer is because information is my most precious commodity – the more I know, the better decisions I can make, and the better my decisions, the better I can serve my end customers by offering the BEST available products and services. This exercise yields two results, and both are positive: (1) The customers are happy because they get the BEST Products. (2) I, as an App Developer, am happy because I’ve not just accomplished my goal of making my customers happy, I’ve also helped myself in the process as Happy Customers = More Sales. And I dare anyone to argue otherwise.
