Meanwhile, in addition to the Customization and Coin feature, there are many other interesting features that make ROLi different from similar applications on the market, such as Surveys feature, Articles, News, Invite Friends, and more.
The reason this app is only available for Android is that the Google-made operating system is more dominating. Approximately 87.4% of the total smartphone in circulation using the Android operating system. On the other hand, there are other issues during iOS development. That does not allow third-party applications (3rd party) to customize the display lock screen. Though this became one of the selling points of ROLi applications.
