Programming on Android or on iOS?

Posted 03 April 2017 - 11:23 AM

Hello all!
I have some experience on Android programming, but I have never tried to develop apps on iOS. The best language to develop on iOS is Swift, right? Does Swift seem with any language used on Android development?

Swift is their thing, certainly.

Xamarin can help do the cross compile.

My vote is to go Xamarin.Forms.
Single code base. You build in a modern C#/XAML/MVVM design pattern.
Same code builds apps for UWP, Android, iOS, Tizen.

The question is why do you want to try it. If it's simply a wish to try you hand at then any language is suitable. If you're going to broaden your expertise then it's better to research the market and check the highest demand there. As far as I know. iOS has one more popular technology - Objective-C. Look for job offers in your region and then you'll have a picture what is better to learn. Or search for software programming company to see what technologies they offer. Typically they have create pages for the most popular technologies based on the reasearch they've already done instead of you. Hope you'll find what you want)

Swift basically replaced objective-c... Objective-c isn't dead... just not the expected modern language of choice now.
