For those who use the iPhone the technology used to drive these products provides several advantages over Android. The key app purchase area is either the app store for iPhone or Google Play for Android. The question you might have as a new investor is which is better and why. Here is a comparison of the two.
If you are purchasing a new smart phone and you what to trade forex or CFDs, chances are that you will be using one of two operating systems, which are Google’s Android or Apple’s iOS. These two platforms accounted for nearly all the new operating systems on smartphones shipped in 2018. Microsoft has thrown in the towel on its Windows Phone, BlackBerry makes Android devices now, and there are very few other options worth considering. The number of apps on Google play in 2018 was 2.7 million, while ios had 2.2 million apps.
Traditionally, iOS has been a more lucrative platform for developers, so there has been a tendency for new apps to appear there first. In the US iOS still leads the way, but developers elsewhere are increasingly targeting Android as the first place they introduce new applications. The Play Store still has a higher percentage of free apps in comparison to the App Store. But the best mobile games still land on iOS first according to many surveys.
Between the two stores, there are millions of apps and games and neither Google’s Play Store or Apple’s App Store organize their stores perfectly. The Play Store is easier to search compared to the ios store and you can queue and install apps from the web browser on your PC or laptop. The Play Store has an advantage as it provides a no hastle refund policy within two hours of purchase. There are some questionable apps in both stores, but Apple is generally stricter about blocking certain types of apps.
