The first question that many developers have in mind when creating an app is to whether they must be registered as developer with Apple or Apple developer account and Google Play Developer console or not before publishing their apps for Apple and Android devices. The short and simple answer is actually yes but, you are not required to have both just to publish on a single platform.
Let’s say that you want to make an app for Apple devices, then it must be available in iTunes App Store for users of iOS to download them. Apple developer program set this requirement in order to protect their users and at the same time, to regulate the type of content available for their devices. This will cost developers around 99 dollars a year for the license which permits them to publish unlimited number of applications.
There are lots of other ways on how you could create an app for Android devices. The simplest among which is via Google Play Store with a Google Developer App Account. The Google Play Developer Console allows the developers to publish and distribute applications easily straight from their accounts to users of any Android compatible devices.
