Mobile App Development
We Are Here For You.
iOS is quite arguably the “big dog”
when it comes to major mobile development platforms, partially because it was the platform that finally brought mobile development into the modern day and age by completely transforming the idea of a mobile device
and mobile software.
iOS is, of course, developed by Apple, and it runs exclusively on Apple products.
At the time of this writing, iOS runs on iPhones, iPods, iPads, Apple Watches, and Apple TV, but I expect there will be more devices which will run iOS in the future.
iOS at its core is very Unix-like; it is based on Darwin (BSD) and OS X.
Android is the other dominant player in this space.
Android was a little later to the game, first being released
in September 2008, almost a year later than iOS,
but it has still managed to gain a pretty large share of the mobile market.
Android is the mobile OS with the largest, most dominant share of the market.
Android, backed by Google,
Android is based on the Linux kernel, and the source code for Android is released as open source by Google.
