Crittercism, a company that works to improve mobile application performance, has found that tech-friendly cities have a clear preference as to what mobile operating systems are more favorable. A tech-friendly city is one that is, unsurprisingly, technologically advanced. The cities that made the list are some of the largest in the United States.
The results of the study were mixed as some cities favor Android and others went the way of Apple’s iOS. The top two iOS cities were San Francisco and New York. Being in the New York Metropolitan Area, I can firmly agree that iOS devices are predominantly carried around. San Francisco, on the other hand, is nearby Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino. Other cities that were more so leaning iOS include Chicago, Fort Worth, and Jacksonville. Cities that heavily prefer Android are San Antonio, Phoenix, and Detroit. Even Houston and El Paso were high on Android’s side, but it was basically split even with iOS.
What have you noticed? Is your area Android and iOS favorable?
