…Or so claims this piece over at CNN-Fortune.
We’ve seen over the past year how the Android platform is poised to pass Apple’s iPhone in users and available apps. This has, of course, flared up passions on both sides as Android and iOS pundits alike craft arguments pointing to the supposedly inevitable demise of the other. In Silicon Valley, tech platforms are like politics!
At Ansca Mobile, we’ve always stressed the need for versatility… And we still stand by it!
Developers simply cannot afford to put all of their eggs into a single platform’s basket, especially since the iOS/Android user margin will still be relatively slim (26% vs. 22% in 2015) after Android is projected to takethe lead. Plus, you’ve got to consider the inevitable emergence of new app platforms in the not-too-distant future. Even if the App Store’s app download market share plummets from its current stronghold, there still won’t be a head-and-shoulders “winner” dominating the app market. So, you can’t afford to pick just one platform for development.
At least, that’s what we think… What are your thoughts?
