There is now an app for almost every requirement of ours and these apps exist for both the iPhone and the iPad. Hence the obvious question being is the mobile app for both iPhone and iPad the same in terms of development. The answer is “yes to some extent” The iPhone app and iPad app are quite similar, however each platform has their unique features and hence the Apple store does have a filter for either iPhone apps or iPad apps.
Main difference between iPhone app and iPad app
There are several subtle difference between the iPhone app and the iPad app. However, when it comes to the iOS app development, there is a considerable difference as mentioned here:
- The interface: To start with the screen size of the iPhone is very different from that of the iPad. The iPad is much bigger, though there are several sizes of iPads available now.
- Target users: There a non-technical aspect to this as well. For those on a low budget developing an app for only one of the two, iPhone or iPad it is important they choose the right device. For example, for an education app for kids, it is a better idea to have to have the iOS App run on the iPad since it has a bigger screen and it is easier for the kids to interact with it. Thus picking the right device when opting for only one of them is important.
- App for all: Almost every business in general would opt for a wider exposer in terms of the number of people they can reach. Hence it does make sense for a business to develop their business related app, either informative app or an app with shopping cart for both the iPhone and the iPad.
