Apple iOS SDK Review
Highly reliable but restricted mobile app development platform


Valuable Features:

With the popularity of iOS apps, vast documentation resources and tutorials are available on the Internet The apps developed using iOS SDK are known to be highly stable Apps built on iOS SDK run in sandboxes, resulting in high application security

Room for Improvement:

Development in Objective-C, which has a smaller developer user base as compared to Java and C/C++ Built on a closed source operating system, so no flexibility to modify and extend the SDK Only deployable on Apple mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod) Using non-standard functions and libraries with iOS SDK is not permitted

Other Advice:

I have managed development of various iOS mobile apps for the last couple of years.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

"Development in Objective-C, which has a smaller developer user base as compared to Java and C/C++"

I agree primarily the development language is Objective C but you cannot say its entirely objective C. Frameworks like OpenGL ES , QuartzCore use low level C/C++ methods to perform operations.

"Only deployable on Apple mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod)"
As the name says IOS SDK, I find nothing wrong with it if apple wants to keep there stuff for themselves. There is a very large user base of iOS devices.

"Using non-standard functions and libraries with iOS SDK is not permitted"
Indeed they do not allow 3rd party Frameworks to be used in your apps since you cannot know what the framework background functions are doing. Apple sees it as a potential security threat.
