Which mobile OS for app programming?

I couldn't find a neutral board to ask this question. So, which one's better for C/C++ programming? Android or Windows Phone?

If you're going to develop on a mobile OS, go with iOS. XCode is the easiest to work with, and if you're interested in monetizing your work, it's easy as hell to make money.

You're awesome.

Use Unity and deploy the same code to all platforms.

Hmmm. I did read up about iOS app development and the money you can make off it. All good. But I just wanna learn how to make an app that can run flawlessly across platforms, kinda like porting. So I wanna know which OS is more friendly for conventional programming i.e the good-old C/C++. Nothing proprietary.

Also, does Windows Phone allow user-made programs to be run directly on the phone? Or does it allow only Store-downloaded apps to run?

Honestly just go with Android to start, it's the most open platform of the bunch

FYI Android uses java, iOS uses objective-C and windows phone uses C#, so you won't be doing "conventional" C/C++ programming
