Benjamin Hüll (2011) Comparing mobile application development for Android and iOS platforms. EngD thesis.
For our thesis, we have developed a mobile application IUS-FOR for the Android operating System. We have also developed a REST web service that enables us to send data to the mobile application, described the IusTime system architecture and the databases which we access with the help of our web service. We have compared the development of applications for Android OS to the development of applications for iOS powered tablet computer iPad. In addition, we have examined different development environments (IDE) that are available from the developers of each operating system. We have compared tools for recognizing gestures, user notification tools and resource access methods (pictures, XML files). Finally, we have described the challenges we have met during the development on two different platforms. The final aim of this thesis is a development of a working mobile application for Android mobile devices.
