Why we won’t see many Microsoft or Google apps on iOS?


[By Guest Blogger  - MDE3]

image thumb22 Why we won’t see many Microsoft or Google apps on iOS?Google and Microsoft have come up with a good plan on how to get their programs on the iOS (that is the software that powers the iTouch, iPhone, and iPad). Google and Microsoft have both written an application (Google and Bing) to be used on the iPhone.

Both of their applications send you to a browser, and rely on the internet. This could be bad if you have a limited data plan or have a slow connection.

So, why could this be good for Google and Microsoft?

There are several reasons:

1. Both companies have their own software powering smartphones. Why would you want your competitor to have all the features that your phone has, when you could use it as a selling point to buy a Google and Microsoft phone?
 
     You would NOT want that…

2. Apple is not going to allow the type of access to the hardware that Google and Microsoft might need for some of their software to run.

3. In the world of technology, information is king…

If Google and Microsoft make you use their web based applications, then they can use that data to find out how to market to you. Whether that is trying to sell you on more of their products or provide 3rd party advertisers better metrics to market to you and thus increasing the advertisers ROI (Return on Investment).

And who will be the dominant software on Smartphones?

My bet is going to be the ones that have the services and software that you want. This includes a couple of others I have not mentioned yet. RIM and Nokia make good phones, but I don’t think they are going to be strong players in the Smartphone market for very long.

Check out some of the services that Google and Microsoft provide and decide what is best for you.

This is not all of them, but these are all things that Apple does not provide:

Microsoft:

Google:

Calendar

Contacts

Devices

Downloads

Family Safety

Groups

Home

Hotmail

Mobile

Office

Photos

SkyDrive

Spaces [ending March 2011]

Blogger

Calendar

Docs

Google Mail

Groups

Knol

Reader

SketchUp

Talk

Voice

YouTube

 

So, having rambled on, I hope you can see that the reason you won’t see Google and Microsoft applications on the iPhone is because of money.  Apple has the buzz of the market, but Google and Microsoft is about to take most of it away.
