While the Google Play Store has helped Android make significant progress in closing the app gap, there are still many apps that are exclusive to iOS devices. Part of the reason developers seem to favor iOS over Android is that it’s easier to develop for a couple of devices with similar specs, versus dozens of models with varying screen sizes and different builds of Google’s OS. Whether it’s utilities like LinkedIn’s CardMunch or games like Hearthstone, these apps are must-haves for any iPhone owner. Android user? You can always hope for a port.
