Brainware is a company that develops iOS apps, and they have a very interesting post on their site about how Android is not a viable solution for native app developers.
native apps don’t port at all. They need to be rewritten from scratch. And Android users buy, on average, 2 apps per year. iOS users, on the other hand, buy 70 apps per year. That’s a shocking 35 to 1 ratio. Also, Android runs on all sorts of devices with different screen sizes, processors, working memory (RAM), and storage memory (Flash). So, all the artwork would have to be redone for multiple Android devices and we would have to dumb-down the software to work on the worse Android device that was worth supporting. Or, even worse, we have to make different versions for different devices.
