Hello, I have recently started to develop android apps and try to get more familiar with android programming. My question is do you prefer android over apple's iOS? For me, I can see an easy winner - android - the fee to upload apps to the store is really small, plus you can make apps for a bigger audience.

I have a preference for Android only because I already had a solid background in Java programming but no experience with iOS development using Objective C. Also, Android does seem to have a larger market share, and I like that it's less expensive and less restrictive than iOS. That said, iOS has a very large market share too. So, if you want your app to reach all users, you'll need to port your app to iOS sooner or later.

Yeah, I love how android has such a low fee because I'm still at school so I would be more likely to pay off £20 by selling apps than I would £99. I also don't like how restricted apple are, although to be fair I think they are starting to become less restricted now.
