Is it impossible to migrate from iOS to other platforms? – Part 2

Monday, April 9th, 2012 6:13:21 by

For example, the mobile apps for different services come first to the iOS platform and then Android, whereas being a late comer Windows Phone gets its turn in the last in most of the cases. NetFlix, Pandora, Hulu are just a few examples that have always preferred iOS before attending to Android and WP.

However, Windows Phone has taken a leap into the smartphone market with fruitful strategic partnerships with Nokia, Samsung and HTC. Out of all these Nokia is paying most attention to Windows platform in its smartphone department. With a slew of mandatory applications, Nokia released the Lumia 900 4G LTE smartphone last week in the US, the most thriving smartphone market in the world.

The shape is attractive, colours are flamboyant and the dimensions are acceptable but the switch from iOS, and Android for that matter, is quite a big hurdle. Those who are iOS users are more invested into the ecosystem that those who have Android devices, be it a smartphone or a tablet.

The more you use an iOS device, the more you likely to end up trapped in an ecosystem that has all the facilities but no way out. The best option to make a shift according to some experts is Android, with its applications pool populated with around 400,000 apps. The OS is supported by  a number of brands like Motorola, Samsung, HTC and whatnots. As far as the designs are concerned, Android is in the lead with the variety.
