First Head-to-Head Comparison of iOS Vs. Android Educational Apps Shows iOS Has Superior Apps, but Barely

First Head-to-Head Comparison of iOS Vs. Android Educational Apps Shows iOS Has Superior Apps, but Barely | MODERNITY AND ITS FUTURES | Scoop.it

"AppoLearning also conducted the first head-to-head comparison of top apps for educational categories for iOS vs. Android. With the exception of early childhood categories, Android is in a virtual dead heat with iOS for the top 5 apps per categories as selected by experts.

 

"These results were quite surprising to us; we had all heard stories of the lack of great Android apps in Education for some time; but the reality is you can find great apps for Android Tablets and Android Phones in addition to iPhones and iPads," said Alan Warms, founder of Appolicious, Inc., producer of appoLearning. "For the first time, consumers can easily compare platforms by category to find the best educational apps as determined by teachers.""
