Reasons to Develop for Android First:

Your revenue model involves in-app advertising

You want a shot at grabbing large market shares in emerging markets

Your primary audience is techy

Your audience values privacy

Less barriers to entry (developer fee, approval times)

Reasons to Develop for iOS First:

Your revenue model involves in-app purchases/regular spending

Your audience needs to be, on average, more affluent

Your audience is business professionals/enterprise level

Faster development time on average (less lines of code, more visual tools)

(Kind of) No Easy Answers
