There are many criteria before choosing the right mobile platform for app development. To choose the right kind of mobile platform, analysing the pluses and minuses of each one before going ahead and creating the app. Here is a the post on how to choose the right mobile platform for developing your mobile application.
- Think of the audience you intend to target.
- Decide on the technical features you want your app to include. Are you looking to create something simple for basic users? Or is it going to be a complicated app that quietly runs in the background and helps users on the move with their every little task? If it is the latter, you would be better off choosing something like the Palm OS rather than the iOS.
- The financial aspect.
- Look at the future prospects for the mobile platform.
- Target on the device where your application want to reach.

Totally depends on the kind of app you want to develop and what you want to get out of it (reach, money, etc). iOS of course makes lots of money but it can be harder to get apps into the Apple App Store, Android is easier to get apps on and has the reach but it brings in less money, and so on.

It is depend upon the app and you also because there are equal android user and apple user in the world now so both the platform are good for made a mobile app. Also I read some article regarding app revenue and found that iphone apps are good for revenue.

If you don't want to invest too much choose Android if you have a PC and an Android smartphone, or choose IPhone if you already have a mac and an IPhone/IPad, etc.
