Do you need a mobile application(app)?

Mobile Apps (Applications)

There may be a million reasons why you need a mobile app. If you already have a website and it is responsive (I would have a responsive website first), you may look to go app-y.

Apple or Android?

Although there are many platforms to build your app on, such as Apple, Android, Windows, Blackberry etc, if you are starting with one platform, it’s likely you’re deciding between Android and Apple iOS. The reason being, that Apple and Android account for over 90% of the smartphone market share.

If you ask the question as to which of the two is better, you will get compelling arguments in the favour of each. Below, I have tried to simplify the choice based on your requirements.
