Consumer App – Android vs IOS vs Hybrid

Choosing a platform is a key question before CIOs and entrepreneurs prior to device their Mobility Strategy prior to start developing an App . As budget constraints and dynamics of  platforms it is very difficult to choose a right one . I would Like give a quick check points prior to choosing a device before you launching a consumer App.  I will also write  separate blogs for enterprise mobility and each platforms capability in coming days

Is there any definite answer – No- Each platforms  have its own strengths and weakness an and it is very important to study carefully and match with your requirements   . Bet me – if you do a detail analysis and ignoring presumptions – your result will be great and different from what you think from surface

What are the normal Options

Should I choose Android Or IOS for my App to Launch? Many consumer Apps first launch on one device and goes to next one

Other big choice is native or Hybrid. Hybrid also offer vide verity of platforms . Phonegap and Titanium leads the race

Quick Parameters

This is a very difficult  answer as you see user behaviour is continuously changing.  Its not just the region  – What kind of people you are expecting your app to download .  Define your market very detail and carefully .
