I'm developing some math educational software aimed at high school kids in algebra, and I'm wondering what the most important platforms are: Windows, Mac, IOS (iPad, iPhone), or Android.
In the world at large there are an awful lot of Windows machines, but if you look specifically at high school students, there may be a greater number of iPads and Android tablets. The LA unified school district just voted to supply every kid in k-12 with an iPad! I live in the LA area and I want to provide my software to the kids I tutor so they can drill things on their own time.
So iPad seems important. I'm not sure about Android tablets... anyone know how common these are in high schools?
How about the Windows/Mac ratio in high school students? Is there a great proportion of Macs?
Note: Android is going to be the biggest headache---the other platforms can share majority of the code I write in C++, but for Android I pretty much have to rewrite the whole thing in Java. I think.
