    iOS devices are more expensive but more robust and better in my opinion.
    Android has many different options (from very cheap up to very expensive) but still lacks the art that Apple gives in any device.
    At the end it is a matter of integration with all your other devices which makes sense if you really focus in one brand.
    I'm using all from Apple: AppleTV, iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air, iMac (and even my 2 Internet routers are Apple Airport Extreme and Express)... when you combine, yes, you have a perfect combination of products that communicate with each other, but there is a price for this...

    I like the "feel" of iOS (I miss my iPhone!!!) but I found the Android to be more flexible (and cheaper) when it comes to app in the Google Play Store.

    So I'd have to say I am mixed for different reasons! :D.

    Edit:
    I voted iPhone.

    For me, it's 100% Android. I see tons of improvement and optimization in each Android update which I don't see much of in iOS updates.

    BTW, either change "Android" to "Android Phones" or "iPhone" to "iOS", not to be picky or anything but you're currently comparing a mobile OS to a physical phone :p Little pet peeve of mine.

    Also to all the comments saying Android is cheaper, if you're buying the high end phones such as (at the time of writing) for example the HTC One X or the Samsung Galaxy S III, you can easily pay more for an Android phone.

    I just wanted to announce that I'm currently working on an Android app for Clientexec. I will create one for iOS afterwards (I'm an android user myself so that is why that is first). I'm writing both in their native languages therefore they will be faster and very efficient however, development will take time.

    The API currently only supports support ticket usages (you can view here ). If you guys could request more functionality of what you would like to the developers and make available via the API I can incorporate it.

    I will post when the app is finalized.

    iOS first and always. Just thinking out loud, but why would you create an API that does so little with your product? ticket usages is the only thing accessible via API? Is this even useful for anyone?

    Greetings,

    I will keep that in mind. Yes for now it helps with my support staff ensuring they do not have to sit in front of a computer all day waiting. Versus getting a push notification on their phone then going to the computer. I like to keep everything as automated and simple as possible. This will be a great foundation so as the API increases in functionality we can simply add those features to the existing app.

    Shelby,

    Thanks for the reply on this. I was actually aiming my questions towards Clientexec, but you do have a valid point. Good to hear from someone who is actually making use of the api even if I think it is limited.

    Samsung Galaxy S III, rooted & running a custom ROM (Android Revolution HD, Android 4.1.2)

    Used to have an iPhone 3GS but hated Apple's walled in system. Even if you Jailbroke the iPhone, you still didn't have full access.

    Just wanted to update everyone. The app is in it's very early stages but is going well. Against my better judgement I went with iOS devices first. When this is completed and in beta testing I will begin Android development. I'll update you as I continue.

    Recently broke my phone :mad: so had to buy a temp replacement (Sony Xperia U - Android). Will very soon be buying either the: Sony Xperia Z, iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy sx

    I think Android gets my vote though. Android is a lot more flexible in terms of customization, many phone manufacturers are building special features into Android vs iOS where, what Apple ships is what everyone has to build on / stick with.

    iPhone and iOS are the best options. Stable products where software and hardware is engineered under the same roof. This kills the competition straightaway.
    If you have an iPad (I have the iPad-mini the best tablet ever) and probably an iMac / MacBook air (like I do) then you will understand the magic about sync with all your devices.
    Oh, and did I mention the AppleTV, iTunes Match service and so on? :)

    Then again that can be argued against you have Android which is open source and thus you have the best minds working together to make a better product, look at what Samsung did with Android, what Sony is trying to do etc... It isn't limited by one companies management direction but instead released allowing a variety for people to choose.

    Being open as well also makes it much more easier for the developer community (apps) as a whole.
