iOS vs Android Infographic

The iOS and Android debate is a good one that never seems to end. The good news is that the debate is really only iOS and Android now. However, the reality in my mind is that most healthcare app developers need to do both regardless.

That said, I think that this infographic illustrates some differences in the culture of the iOS ecosystem and the Android ecosystem. It’s not really surprising when you realize that there are only expensive iOS devices and so it’s no surprise that people with iOS devices have more money. Whereas there are high end Android devices and there are low end Android devices. I wonder if the numbers would be very similar between those who have high end Android devices and iOS. I bet those populations would be very similar.

What are your thoughts on the debate between iOS and Android? Does it really matter at this point?
