Abstract: Now-a-days, mobile applications implement complex functionalities that use device’s core features extensively. This paper realizes a performance analysis of the most important core features used frequently in mobile application development: asynchronous multi-threaded code execution, drawing views/elements on the screen and basic network communications. While multiple mobile platforms have emerged in recent years, in this paper two well-established and popular operating systems were considered for comparison and testing: Android and iOS. Thus, two basic applications featuring the same functionality and complexity were developed to run natively on both platforms. Applications were developed by using development languages and tools recommended for each operating system. This paper aims to highlight the differences between the two operating systems by analyzing core feature performance metrics for both functionally identical mobile applications developed for each platform. Results obtained could be further used for guiding the optimization of application’s development process for each considered operating system.
