We have come a long way, especially in terms of Tech development, don't you feel so? The smart phone revolution that took place a few years back is going on and on. Today we all have turned out to be smart users of smart phones. We have become enlightened enough to think twice about the apps and operating systems that we are willing to use. Gone are the days when smart phone business was just about sharp displays, long battery life. In crux, smart phones are a lot more than hardware. People have started wondering about its software, the apps that they will be getting.
There are three major operating systems available on smart phones namely- iOS from Apple, Android from Google, and windows from Microsoft. To a lay person, the apps in the respective systems may all be the same, providing some or the other service but as an app expert, there are a number of differences in the apps offered by these three operating systems. iBrandox, the best app developing company in Gurgaon, will decode the world of App, telling you the specific features of these apps. We will be decoding these three on the lines of apps, features and security.APPSAndroid-
The android App Store synonymous to the Google play store is a strong rival to the iOS App Store. It has over 1 million apps available on it, catering to the users across all the boards be it about a business user, or the balancing a budget or a student viewing and editing documents. There are some minor discrepancies and it is here, where iOS takes an upper hand. However, more or less, the quality and availability of apps on Android and iOS is almost equal.Windows-
The windows phone store may sometimes get a backseat due to availability of smaller number of apps, especially when seen in comparison to a number of apps available on Android and iOS. But that certainly doesn't negate the value/ specialty or productivity of windows phone. The windows store is growing faster and it may become equivalent to Android in future.iOS-
No matter what, it is hard to win over iOS/ Apple's App Store, especially when talked in terms of app support and apps availability. It can match or even surpass the things offered by Android and windows, but there are some things which are exclusive to iOS alone like Kashoo accounting app.Talking in Terms of Features:Android:
It offers Google Now, which acts like an intelligent personal assistant to keep their masters punctual and scheduled in their lives. It helps business users stay on track and never miss a call or meeting.
This amazing service works by observing/monitoring your activity within the Google ecosystem and pushing relevant notifications to you as per their detections. In practice, the service notifies you of traffic delays, weather forecasting, upcoming meetings or appointments that you have and much more.Windows:
It is only with windows phones offering a mobile platform with Live Tiles. Now what are the live tiles? It updates in real time and displays relevant information straight on your home screen and makes sure that you never miss out or important things in your life.iOS-
The iWork for iOS apps are fully integrated with Apple's desktop iWork applications, letting it's users view and edit documents seamlessly on multiple devices. The latest version of iOS also adds features like Airdrop, letting its users share files with a single tap and many other amazing features, like revamping email app with the ability to add auto- sorting mailboxes.SECURITY
Security is one of the top and obvious concerns for almost everyone using mobile devices.Android:
In case of android, it's very easy to download and install an unapproved app from a source other than Google play store. The fragmented android landscape makes it vulnerable at times. It's advisable to be fully bewaring of the unsafe, insecure apps on android, though it is not to say that the Android is not a safe platform. It is just that it requires you to be more cautious.Windows:
On the lines of security, a window is ahead of Android and can be seen equal to iOS. In windows, all apps are reviewed and approved by Microsoft and thus, leaving you carefree from considering and wasting your time on anti- virus and anti-malware softwares.iOS:
Apple's App Store is again the most secure mobile operating system. It is next to impossible to install apps from unofficial sources as all apps are reviewed and approved before they become available to get downloaded.
