App Developers experiencing more problems with iOS 8 than Android Lollipop
After the emergence of mobile applications and various operating systems on which they are developed, the number of developers has been very considerate while choosing their option of development. At the same time, the area of interest of the developers also plays an important role in development as the app implementation becomes a lot easier with good development. Android and iOS are two giants who are currently leading the market of mobile applications. The development methodologies involved in these two types of operating systems have vast differences.
Android has released Lollipop as its last version along with which iOS 8 has also come into the picture from the Apple Inc. Now considering the development perspective of both the operating systems, it becomes easy to analyze the role of developers in the process. Based on a recent most survey, it has been found that there are many problems for app developers in iOS 8 than in Android Lollipop. Here are some points that differentiate between Android Lollipop and iOS 8.
Crashing issues with iOS 8
One of the main reasons behind the difficulty faced by the mobile app developers to develop an application in iOS 8 is the rate at which it gets crashed. Researchers have found that 2.5 percent of the applications developed on iOS 8 get crashed while this ratio reduces to 2 percent with Android Lollipop. Mobile application developers due to this reason opt for Android Lollipop platform than iOS 8. Crashing issues also affects the code part of the development and this becomes more tedious with going time. There are certain methodologies to be followed in iOS that can take a ted bit of time in development process of the application.
Update version with devices
There are tangible amount of application that run on iOS without any offerings. With iPhone 6 and iPad Air in the market, the application made by iOS app developers ought to run successfully on the specific devices. In case of Android, the app development becomes much easier as so much flexibility is provided to the developers. Once the version is updated on your device, all the latest applications become compatible and can be upgraded easily. Before Lollipop, the KitKat had an awful track record of crashing which has now considerably reduced making Android Lollipop more powerful than iOS 8 of Apple. So there has been drastic improvement in Android since last year.
Stability in operating systems
Researchers have now started believing that Android has been sufficiently competitive to iOS in the market in terms of stability. The technical aspects of Android have considerably changed in last few years making it better for use. Large scale mobile apps development companies have now started using Android apps development as prime focus of their business because of favoritism among the users in the market. iOS on the other hand has focused more on customers making it hard for developers to make easy applications. The high end devices of Android like Galaxy S5 and others have reduced the crash rate of Android to a considerate extent making it more stable.
Mobile app developers need to be more focused on making the applications which can get the better of other apps in the market. There are always certain issues with some or the other applications and this can hinder developers from making an exceptional app.
