There are 3 main reasons we've developed for iOS first:

1. Though Android has more "market share," we have found that more people actually use iOS devices to install apps, and to browse iATN. According to our Google Analytics information, there are more members browsing iATN with iOS devices than Android. (This has been true for years. )

2. iOS is much less fragmented than Android, making it easier to develop for. For example, 90% of iOS users are on the latest release, iOS 8. And there are fewer models of iPhone to deal with, which makes testing far easier.

3. Practically speaking, all of our staff uses iOS devices, making it easier for us to use and debug our first mobile release.
