After using byte for the past week, I have noticed some differences between how the app runs on IOS vs on android. We are missing a lot of different features, to name a few: customizable app icons, stickers, etc. (if you guys have any others you can leave them in the replies) I totally understand that developing is way harder on android because it runs on so many different types of phones, but the android market is important to pay attention to nonetheless.
None of these have been deal breaking, but the accumulation of different bugs and missing features, all while seeing iPhone get more things can be frustrating and drive android users away from the app.
I don’t know the specific number for this app of the ratio of android to iPhone users, but in America, although 58% of people owned iPhones, 42% of people android phones in 2019. (source) This number is slowly rising, too. Looking past the US, the majority of European countries have over 50% Android users.
So please, keep consistency between your platforms; it should feel like the same app whether you’re on IOS or android. The android market is a huge and expanding one, so please don’t ignore us when developing your app!
P.S. did I put this in the right category? lol
