Apple iOS SDK Review

Apple is always behind android SDK in benefits

Valuable Features:

The SDK contains the iPhone simulator, a program used to emulate the look and feel of the iPhone developer's desk. - The SDK is very stable. - easy to use and it can help you with the function of tying some of the codes of a graphic interface together. - you can develop it for iphone and itouch.

Room for Improvement:

- Only mac users can develop applications and games for iphone, and for ipod touch - programming with Objective-c is not preferable for some developers - android sdk accepts programming in C and C++, which is available and is very very easy for some developers - you have to pay each year for an Apple license

"you can develop it for iphone and itouch."
well you can develop for iPad as well.

"games for iphone, and for ipod touch"
Sorry but I do not do not think it is a con in itself, what is the harm if you can develop games (should have been a pros).
and btw you can also develop for iPad.

"android sdk accepts programming in C and C++"
You my friend need to go through the iOS SDK more thoroughly. If you are familiar with QuartzCore and OpenGL ES , you will see that both the frameworks use low level methods written in C and C++ functions. Also while developing an OpenGL application features such as shaders use simple C/C++ class which is compiled at runtime.

You said that Apple is always behind Android SDK in benefits, so iOS SDK is behind Android SDK in benefits. The only reason is because Android SDK accepts programming in C and C++, or do you have other reasons?
