For nonprofits, when it comes to developing a mobile app, there is always a dilemma as which platform to pick - Android or iOS. Though a host of disparities exists between the two, it's hard to reach a conclusion, as both have captured a piece of the market-share pie. However, in the battle of gaining traction, none of the platforms are losers or winners. The dominant factor is the ROI which, again, is a function of different sub-factors, which we'll discuss later.

Let's examine what benefits are linked with choosing iOS app development.

1. The App Design Is More Desirable

The UI/UX design, ruled by Human User Interface Guidelines, provides coding simplicity, consistency, and interoperability offered by the open source programming language Swift. With the user-friendly development environment created with Xcode, Apple offers all of this with absolute precision. Thus, it empowers iOS Swift developers, thereby helping them do justice to any nonprofit iOS app development project.

2. Uninterrupted User Experience

Consumers often appreciate Apple for not overloading its iPhone or iPad devices with third-party applications, as its counterpart Android does. These third-party apps often play foul with the user experience. Thus, when you create something for iOS, the app is most likely to deliver a more unrestricted user experience, which means healthy user engagement.

3. Consolidated Market

iOS app development might come at a cheaper rate, as there is not much device- or OS-based market fragmentation as there is with Android. Its consolidated market eases the job of developers and app owners. The former don't need to configure the app build for different screen sizes or models, and there are few challenges when it comes to offering updates or enhancements. For the latter, it becomes easier to manage the app over a long time.

4. Better HTML Support

Now, iOS developers are no more confined to clumsy Flash files to make their media components work on an iPhone or iPad device. The platform enjoys HTML5 compatibility, so developers can provide Flash-like user experience with a comparatively lightweight HTML programming. Thus, incorporation of HTML will ultimately speed up the app performance and make it more secure.

5. Dynamic Icons for Apps

iOS gives Android a run for its money when it comes to the availability and elegance of icons to use with apps. They are designed aesthetically and more coherently to match with the use cases. The relevance of the icons makes a difference to the user engagement and conversion.

7. Siri Integration

You can incorporate Siri into your nonprofit app to make it more accessible and engaging. Users can explore the services and features of your nonprofit app with voice commands.

8. Apple Pay Integration

In 2016, Apple rewarded nonprofits by making its flagship mobile payment service available for nonprofits. The decision paved the path for building fundraising apps using Apple Pay. So, you don't need to rely on any third-party service to seek donations.

The Bottom Line

Blending quality, integrity, flexibility, and capability in one has become easier for nonprofits with iOS app development. All they need is the right iOS app development company that can transform their analog idea into a digital one.
