It can often be seen that Geeks are more often confused to buy a gadget than an ordinary non-tech savvy person. The excess knowledge of the latest smart phones can often confuse one to a situation that choosing between any two top smart phones becomes a hilarious task. iPhone Application Development today has started to attract so large a group of people that its competitor, Android, is finding a tough time to cope up with the challenges that are coming its ways.
Like both the platforms are having a tough time fighting with each other for attracting people, so are the users finding a tough time fighting for their opinions about both the platforms. Getting a smart phone with the right platform is a confusing rather than a tough task. But the battle between the closed versus open systems is going on to the present day. This has been a topic of criticism towards the eye-candy of millions, iPhone. The company has been criticized very much on its approach towards creating a “walled paradise”.
Apple has been successful in creating devices which are not penetrable, whether it is the mechanism of the software or the hardware. Apple makes sure that its users are contented with its products. And for those who are not satisfied being contented, had to jail-break into its settings to make it personalized for their exclusive use.
Before the advent of iPhone, the operating system in the limelight was of course Blackberry. RIM was successful enough to develop operating system which runs only on the smart phones made by them. It can be seen that apple is also following the same steps.
The greatest advantage of iOS is that the developers aim for a particular group of devices. The engineers of Apple are well aware of how the hardware in the OS is going to perform and what all elements are needed for making the hardware perform the best in its maximum efficiency. iPhone application development is designed to needs of the companies which prefer to have a unique application. Not any one can just sneak into an application and personalize it in their way. Hence ‘Closed’ system has gained prominence among businesses.
iPhone application development in spite of the closed platform has always acted as a great help in the field of business these days. The major disadvantage of a ‘Closed’ system is that only limited number of apps is available due to the limited number of contributions. Still the easy-to-handle unique models brought out by Apple have made it one of the “BEST” Smart phones any individual can possess.
