iOS vs. Fragmented Android

iOS vs. Fragmented Android

Lot’s of talk lately about “Fragmented Android” so I wanted to show what “Fragmented Android” is from *just* a hardware side.

The kind folks a Animoca a cross-platform app publisher of entertainment products for Android smartphones and tablets. Posted a photo last week showing the number of Android devices they use to test app’s to ensure the best experience for all.

"those are just the ones that would fit on our biggest table."

As you can see thats a lot of testing and a lot of cost.

This is what you need for iOS testing.

Yeah. This is why I develop for iOS and then think about Android, not to mention the OS version issues.

That's a lot of devices for sure. Now I know why developers say that it's hard to develop apps for Android devices.

I don't have much knowledge about app development, but isn't Android supposed to be an open source platform? If somebody discovers a flaw in an Android app, he/she can make changes or tweaks and re-release it, right?

This is what I think is the biggest plus point of iOS - uniformity and standardization through and through. There will never be any complaints like 'incompatible with my phone' or 'lag on my phone'.
