User experience of software
Apple is known for its user-friendliness, but does it matter when it comes to POS software on iPad? Arguably, you will have a better experience on an iPad compared to an Android tablet for several reasons.
Firstly, there is no bloatware to slow down the software on an iPad, whereas Android uses ads and compulsory apps that can slow down the software you’re using. On top of this, Apple is known for their consistently fluid interface, making scrolling and moving between screens so smooth you don’t notice it (you still notice hiccups with Android). Secondly, iOS apps are updated more frequently than Android apps to address bugs, add features and just generally improve the app.
In addition, cloud-based POS providers offering their POS app to both Apple and Android users tend to prioritise development of their iOS app over the Android app. This is often reflected by more features for the iPad than for Android tablets or a delay in releasing new features for Android after first releasing it for iOS.
