Our long-term goal is to have the two versions developed in parallel and offer the same functionality on both operating systems. Initially, the code structure was slightly different and diverged at some point to support specific features and hardware. The differences between the two applications have not been listed so far.
I would advise you to have a closer look at our supported drone if you have not chosen your mobile os yet between Android and iOS.
Most of the features are common to the two versions of Pix4Dcapture. Indeed on the two apps, as you mentioned, you can select:
- The tilt angle of the camera.
- The way you want the camera to look, nadir or at the center of the grid (face setting on Android and look at the grid’s center on iOS), - The percentage of overlap.
Note that for Android, only the frontal overlap can be selected, the side overlap is automatically calculated so that it is the closest as possible to the frontal overlap.
From a user perspective, depending on the needs for their projects, it is important to consider that the possibility to set a custom camera is only available on iOS and the possibility to import .kml/.kmz file is only available on Android for the moment.
