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.

Android OS:

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 IOS:

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.
