The debate as to which company has the better mobile operating system has been discussed for a couple years now. Google recently has been launching Android commercials to get more people informed about their operating system. I would now like to communicate my thoughts as to what I find to be the better operating system, having experience with both.
Google Play Store has thousands upon thousands of free applications and paid applications +
Purchase songs and albums through Google Play and other music providers such as Amazon +
Open source meaning anyone can create their own variations of the OS +
Changeable launchers(the screen where your app icons are) +
Can use other app stores without rooting/ running a custom rom +
Have to pay Google $25 just one time to develop apps and publish on their Play store. ++++++
Apple App Store has thousands upon thousands of free applications and paid applications +
Purchase songs and albums only through iTunes on the device –
Closed sourced can only be customized via jailbreak –
Launcher can be customized via jailbreak but cannot be changed to a different one –
Can only use Apple App Store unless you jailbreak and add Cydia –
Have to pay Apple $99 per year to develop apps for them and publish them on their app store – – – – –
The winner: Android OS
The definitive winner in my opinion has to be Android. Although I believe security should be taken into account Apple purposely limits the features people have on their devices while Android is more friendly to developers and users alike. This is why I truly believe people especially in the I.T. industry should use Android devices instead of IOS devices.
