Since more people use Android than iOS, if you have reasons to only develop it for one platform, you'll be able to reach more people when choosing Android. But most companies make both, so they can reach everybody.
But you might have other criteria for "best" then "biggest audience"?

If you hire anybody (including me) to make an app for you, the first question would be: "Do you want an Android app or an iOS app or both?". You pay, so you decide.

But let me ask this. Your profile says you're an app development company. If someone tells you to make an app for them, and doesn't start with mentioning a platform, what do you ask and what do you choose?

Wait a moment. Your profile says you develop apps!

So I worry you are not telling us all here.

There are articles about the merits of each platform so I'll condense it to short as can be without a dissertation.

1. iOS. Tends to return more dollars to the authors.
2. Android. Tends to be hard to get folk's attention due to "Wow, a billion apps out there." To really make a splash you need big hits like Flappy Bird or such.
