The two most popular mobile operating systems in today’s digital market are iOS and Android. Their domination is so vast that the remaining operating systems constitute only 0.1% of the total market. It is not surprising to realize that the use of smartphones spiked during the year 2020 and is still an integral part of everyone’s daily routine. The virtual world is becoming more and more prominent in our lives. With this comes the demand for engaging mobile apps that will generate a great amount of traffic. Therefore, an attractive mobile app design proves to be a very valuable asset for a company as its business can run smoothly and efficiently.
Now the question arises whether one should choose either iOS or Android for creating mobile apps. When these two platforms are compared, there is no definite answer to which platform is the best. The answer is very grey because it all depends on the strategies and goals of a particular company. If any of the two platforms aligns well with the expectations of a company, then the respective platform should be considered. Otherwise, both operating systems have very exciting and valuable aspects worth integrating into a company.
An engaging mobile app design can either make or break an application as it all comes down to an amazing user experience. iOS and Android both have their own appealing styles when it comes to crafting an ideal mobile app. Android invests in material design whereas iOS represents its designs through flat imagery and level text. iOS focuses on simplicity so that the important content could not be overlooked by anyone. Therefore, detailing is omitted to avoid overcrowding. This proves to be user-friendly as it is easy for users to navigate through the page. VisionX is adept at designing these simple yet sophisticated apps that display content straightforwardly. A sharp eye is kept on clarity as well as depth to avoid any compromise on quality. The flat surface is enhanced with the use of vague shadows and subtle layering.
As for Android, its material design paves way for an attractive layout full of vibrant illustrations to give the effect that the page has popped out hence, this gives the user a more immersive experience. We at VisionX understand the importance of creating a mobile app that will catch people’s eyes. Therefore, a considerable amount of thought and effort is placed in the development process. Alluring aspects like colorful animations and classic illustrations are added to further enhance a user’s experience.
Both platforms offer spectacular apps, therefore, prove to be neck-to-neck with each other within the digital industry. As far as Android is concerned, it offers a wider variety of mobile apps whereas iOS launches a smaller number. Even though Apple Store, which is run by iOS, has plenty of amazing apps, this is not for budget-conscious people. iOS is more expensive than Android. However, the mobile apps of iOS are of supreme quality hence, users can enjoy an amazing and comfortable experience. Both platforms have also worked constantly to provide safe and reliable apps for users to prevent spyware activity.
When it comes to easy customization and higher flexibility, Android conquers in this aspect. This allows developers a highly free hand to create an engaging mobile app design. The hardware compatibility of Android is also very high therefore, it can run on almost any Android device. On the other hand, iOS offers a limited number of widgets and has fewer options when it comes to playing around with the features and styles. Overall, it can be said that a third-party application can easily be used on Android but for iOS smartphones, there are limitations.
Since there are many Android devices on which a mobile app can work, the issue of device fragmentation arises. Screen dimensions have to be taken into account to ensure the mobile apps work properly and also to avoid any awkward placement of graphics and tools within the frame. On the other hand, Apple has a small range of devices therefore, the mobile app design developed by Apple does not experience as much trouble and hassle as Android does.
Moreover, when it comes to Android, the time taken to test and develop mobile apps takes longer because screen dimensions have to be observed on a wide range of devices. Moreover, there are a greater number of resources required when managing the mobile app design of Android as compared to iOS. Therefore, reviewing takes a lot longer for Android. VisionX always ensures quality reviewing and testing before launching any mobile apps of either iOS or Android so that users don’t face any problems. We ensure optimum reliability, high accessibility, and an excellent user experience.
