I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The answer today is to use Apple's Xcode 6.4 that bundles Swift 1.2 to produce apps for iPad, iPhones and the watch.  Swift is a new language that let's you bring apps to market quickly and makes it easier to storyboard.

It is always possible one could come up with a unique and highly desired app that is NOT available for either Android or iOS.  If that is the case with your app, then whatever market you support first will be the most lucrative.

but in the grand scheme of things, the odds of that happening are pretty low.  So just port to the apple line FIRST and you'll bring in the $$$
