Let’s look into advantages of iOS over Android, and why many application will never be on Android. Also we will tell you about best apps accessible only for iOS.
Developers prefer iOS
iOS is more interesting for developers, than Android. That is nothing new, many cool applications firstly appear on iOS and only after several month appear in Google Play. And sometimes they remain exclusive for iOS. What is the reason? It is simply: the reason is in users’ solvency. Android still have problems with piracy, and the most upsetting consequences of this are for developers. Android users just do not want to pay for applications and games. Why for? If everyone can download and install them from any source. Google does nothing to change this situation, though it could forbid access to software not from Google Play.
As a result, it is not advantageous for developers to create serious projects, because if application costs more than $1, it will be ignored by users. Some studios create conditionally free applications: there are banners or inner buying. It is the own fault of users, that for normal game they need to collect crystals, coins etc. But until Google overcomes piracy, you can forget about good applications.
6 best apps for iOS
There are six best exclusives for iOS, which will unlikely be in Google Play some day.
Best application for time-lapse video from Instagram creators. Nothing unnecessary: for recording you just need to press one button. Already at the next step, when video is ready, you can customize speed, edit something and then save or immediately send into Facebook or Instagram. Standard app “Camera” in iPhone also have hyperlapse technique, but it does not have customization of speed and digital stabilization. Application is free and accessible only for iPhone users.

One more application, which iPad owners must have. You need to install application in Mac and iPad. Developers refused from wireless synchronization, thus you will need Lightning cable. It also allows to charge tablet during the usage. After synchronization, system will interpret iPad as full-fledged external display. Thereby, you will be able to drag windows and open programs at full screen. Duet Display works with Mac and Windows. But it doesn’t support Android.
