Why Java & Objective-C are the Choice Application Development Languages

Originally posted on Tech.co

Mobile apps are everywhere. So for the developer looking to create the next app, one of the biggest questions becomes: Which programming language to choose for the next project?

With most platforms having their own app languages, iOS and Android are no exception. As a developer, you should know which languages you are going to use if you are sure about which platform you’ll be deploying on.

Android & iOS: Language Lock-in
Most developers give priority to Android over iOS but the gap between them remains small with Android having a 42 percent share and iOS securing a 32 percent share. All these big platforms witness a language lock-in which means that it is all about the language priority and not just platform priority. Java is the preferred language for designing and developing Android apps whereas Objective-C is the preferred choice for iOS apps. In Android, 60 percent of the work is done in Java while in iOS, 50 percent in Objective-C.
