It’s also estimated that the latter number will increase to 6.1 billion by 2020, so now is the time for upgrading business with mobile app development.
Although there are a few other interesting languages available now, you should choose the language with extreme care to get the perfect app for your needs.
I’d like to highlight that every business is unique and you must put your company’s interests first when deciding on an operating system. Simply put, if your target audience consists of iOS or Windows Mobile users, there is little point of making an Android-only app.
However, if your customers don’t have any of these preferences, Android would be your best choice. It’s a simple fact that Android’s market share is bigger than any other mobile OS. It beats Apple’s iOS, its closest competitor by 6 times. As there aren’t any indications of a diminishing interest in Android, one has to assume that it will remain the most widespread mobile OS for a while.
As the point of upgrading business with mobile app development is to attract more customers, using the most popular system is the most logical choice. Do note though that there are specific countries where iOS leads. These include Japan, the USA, the UK, France, and Denmark. In these countries, you need to research your targeted customers carefully to determine which OS is most popular among them. I can also suggest developing an app for both systems.
As we’ve already seen, Android dominates the market in most countries. It’s also sure to continue said trend as two of the three most sold smartphone brands (Samsung and Huawei) use Android.
However, for your app to succeed, you must not only choose the right platform but also ensure it’s efficient and bug-free. This means you must pick the best programming language.
The most popular options for Android developers are:
So, I suggest choosing the best, most experienced developer you can afford as these professionals will, quite literally, be the writers of your success.
