What is the difference between android and iOS?
i. iOS programs are Developed in c-with-objects which is very tough for normal programmers to code. Android is based on java which is very easy to code. This is the first major advantage of android over iOS. There is huge developer forum community help for java developers, where as very less forum communities for iOS.
ii. Too many restrictions to publish iOS applications in apple play store. There are no restrictions to upload android applications into google play store.
iii. iOS applications runs only on apple approved hardware, chipsets and iOS. Where as Android applications can run on any android powered device as longs as that runs a linux flavoured operating system and contains android sdk. android is not limited for only mobiles. It can be used to develop applications for tablets, notepads, robots, wrist watches, etc. There is pure monopoly in iOS in terms of controlling who can develop and manufacture.
iv. Android is a free software, which anyone can download use and make money out of it. Google won't object. But iOS is not a free ware. One has to pay huge royalty to use it.
