The mobile app development market in India, just like any other global companies are finding fantastic growth. The applications are the actual choice of people as they make your life comfortable and are also secure to use. There are various platforms for building these mobile apps, which ensures the best of customer satisfaction and user expectations for its targeted audience.
According to a new report out of from Sensor Tower, Apple’s trend of bringing in more income via its App Store than Google does via the Play Store continued in the third quarter of 2018. But Google Play still has the advantage in term of application downloads, thanks to the rapid adoption of lower-cost Android smartphones in developing markets, the report said. So it will not be wrong to say that the iOS app still dominates the world.
Here I’m sharing my opinions on why iOS apps earn more profit & revenues as compared to the Google Play Store Apps:
Superior UX (User Experience)
iPhone owns a dedicated user base. These loyal customers lead to an increase in usage of iOS apps and as a result iOS app make more revenues. So, most of the application developers prefer to build an app for the iOS platform. Also, iOS-based apps are known to offer better UX as well as UI to the users.
Directed at Higher App Revenue Groups
iPhones always aimed for the premium marketplace and with higher earnings. So, they will always go for the best tools, even if those tools are yielding higher costs. More is the monetization better is the result achieved, with an improvement in the amount of revenue.
iOS users are more likely to purchase apps and make in-app purchases. The restricted nature of iOS will make it difficult to pirate an app as compared with the Android apps.
Quality of the Apps
iOS is a restricted platform as Apple has total control over its devices and software. They have their own designers whether for hardware or software, providing strict guidelines on their interactions. Because of the limited number of devices, iOS is also preferred by the developers for app development. It is pretty much comfortable for the iOS users to get the latest version of OS, which accounts for a greater rate of adoption in parallel with the Android OS.
Developing UI/UX of iOS devices is quite easy as compared to Android devices. It has natural frameworks to work with and is more user-friendly. So this is the primary reason why most business owners prefer to develop an iOS app by hiring an iOS developer who is an expert and professional.
Although the review process for building iPhone apps is much longer, it exhibits quality apps, which is due to necessary strict guidelines to be adhered by Apple while using the iOS platform.
iPhone devices are less prone to bugs. This is one of the biggest benefits of OS from Apple. Not so much of coding is required while developing an iOS-based app. So, most of the people prefer iOS-based apps as these come with fewer virus threats.
Apple comes with firmer and faster tools and has excellent developer tools for mobile app development when placed in comparison with Android.
Better App Store Visibility
Apple App Store is more organized into various categories comparatively to the Google Play Store. The complicated algorithm decides the ranking of an app over the App store. Once you read the app ratings as well as app reviews on the App Store, it becomes much easier for you to choose an app as per your initial requirement.
There is no doubt that we have more Android smartphones in the market as compared to iOS smartphones. But the quality of apps for iOS-based devices still remain superior. Google owns more downloads, but Apple’s app store wins the battle by earning more revenue.
