What makes Windows a better development environment than Mac Os X
Posted: Jul 04, 2016
There are many reasons why windows score Mac over every sphere when it comes to the mobile app development.May be not many people would agree but this debate is been going on for many years as to which is better,windows or Mac Os X. There are certainly large no. of, factors why windows mobile app development has an edge over Mac, but it all depends on the usability for the developers. Going back to the days when there were only fewer mobile applications on windows; people who knew about Mac and most people were concerned for windows, but today the time is different, people are bending more towards Mac and looking second after the window.
User Interface: The Mac OS X has got greater amount of flexibility and versatility, but when it come to user experience there is no match with the windows. 70% of the users still like or prefer windows over Mac because very easy interface. Windows mobile applications are much friendlier then the Mac OS applications. The real user experience says that working on the windows is quite handy and easy. When you put your hands on Mac, it would require lot of time to make yourself handy with the OS and work with full efficiency. Though, there are still many people who don't like the windows mobile interface and find it more clumsy and unfriendly. People who have been using windows mobile for long time and doesn’t have first hand experience in Windows 8, might not like windows 10, but against IOS it definitely scores more.
Speed: When it comes to Speed, Mac OS is not as fast as the Windows. Windows applications have a processor that is multi functional and more advanced than the Windows. We are going for some real technical specifications,The Mac OS mobile application development platform is not much faster in comparison to the windows. Developers usually don’t have much liberty working in the MAC for multi tasking over the windows.
Programming Integration: This is the area where windows is likely to score more over Mac. The windows mobile application comes with a highly durable and advanced programming interface that integrates several modules and third party programs as well. Earlier the windows developers used to always depend on some of the selected programmers and modules that is been supported by Windows, but doesn’t have unlimited options of third party modules to integrate with the windows and enjoy the best experience with Windows. On the other hand MAC OS X still has got very complicated and stiff programming interface that makes it less popular among the users who loves to install some fancy and external programmers on their PCs. MAC OX S supports only few selected third party programmers that not every user would like to have on their PC.
Time: When we talk about the real user experience, developing mobile apps on windows takes much lesser time than in MAC and there are several reasons. The MAC has very strict modules and sometimes only premium developer are able to use specialized features or unlock the key features. On the other hand Windows has not got such type of obligations, rather it provides great liberty to the developers to use application modules from the windows market that are encoded, therefore they don’t need to spend more time in unlocking those complex applications as it is in MAC.Overall developing application in MAC takes more time than developing application in the windows.
