I simply like the platform. The hardware is nice, Objective-C is a pleasant language for me to write in, the library is very well thought out. And it certainly does not hurt that we can keep the company afloat by developing for iOS -- we simply could not do that on Android.

Really? A few work clients of mine have recently moved towards developing apps for Android (funnily, after having their academia app rejected multiple times by Apple) and from what I've heard it is far easier to train people to write Android apps, they make far more money from ads and that most Android owners will purchase great apps simply because the developer was thoughtful enough to release it on their platform. It may be different in the UK, but to my knowledge they've ceased development on iOS to focus on Android.
