In our latest Ask a Dev video, iOS Architect Kevin Harwood explains that choosing a platform is really a question of audience.

“I can’t stress how important it is enough for you to do the proper user research enough to understand the users that you’re building your app for, and make educated decisions off of that data,” he says in the video, above.

For example, in the United States, iOS and Android users are split roughly equally, whereas a market like Brazil has many more Android users than iOS users.

Harwood also discusses the best programming languages for aspiring iOS developers. First, he recommends that new developers learn how to program before a they focus on a specific language.

He explains that iOS is developed with Objective-C, which is obscure and is rarely seen outside of Apple. He recommends picking up Ruby as a more dynamic language. Our developer experts are from Mutual Mobile, a leading development and design firm that builds mobile strategies for top companies such as Audi, Google and Citigroup.
