Transforming a solution into a mobile app is a great way of responding to people’s needs. A mobile app always addresses something: the need to play and relax, shop more efficiently, constantly communicate with family and friends, or enhance the mobile experience. In Singapore, the most popular types of mobile apps in iOS and Android phones fall into the categories of games, shopping and messaging. In Malaysia, games and mobile phone tool apps are popular among iOS and Android phone users. The wide range of apps available caters to the diverse needs of Singaporeans and Malaysians.
One of the most important factors in building a mobile app is its platform. Will you build a mobile app for Android devices, iOS devices, or both? Before you make that decision, take a look at the benefits of developing a mobile app for each platform, and which are more important to you.
You get to reach more affluent audiences.
iOS devices are more popular in the economically-advanced regions of Europe and North America. They are also more popular among media and business professionals. That translates to more spending power.
You get to earn more income.
Apple makes 45% more revenue per user. It’s also 23% more likely for an iOS device user to make in-app purchases than an Android user. Repeat purchases are also more likely as iOS devices users are more loyal, with 62% of them reporting satisfaction with their phones and tablet computers. Companies with iOS apps made 70% more income than Android users last 2017.
You get to develop your app easily and with less cost.
Developing an app is easier for iOS devices because of there are a fewer number of devices and operating systems to hurdle. Android’s operating system release cycles are slower and less mandatory than iOS. Because of that, you have to develop an app for different operating systems. There’s also a broader range of device brands you have to develop a mobile app for.
You get to reach a wider number of users.
Android leads the market with 80% of the market share, with most users coming from Asia, Africa and South America. Android apps are also more popular among users from lower-income areas.
Building a mobile app for Android is also a great way to market your service to a larger audience before monetizing it.
Android allows for beta testing and staged rollout.
The app review process is relatively short compared to iOS.
The mobile app review process for Android takes less than seven days.
In a nutshell, Android is better for market penetration, while iOS works for monetization.
