Google’s operating system, the Android, is activating 44% more devices each day than Apple’s operating system, the iOS, this according to the recent article “Do Apple Apps or Android Daily Activations Matter Most?” published in Forbes.com and written by Eric Jackson.
Jackson reported that the daily activations of Android devices is up to 550,000 a day; while the daily activation rate of iOS devices is close to 382,000.
Despite the Android’s market share triumph, Jackson reported that mobile application or app developers continue to flock to develop on the iOS platform.
Based on a Flurry study, 57% of new app projects starting now are for iPhone/iPad and 15% are for iPad; while only 28% of new app projects were for Android.
“The market share numbers seem to matter less to these developers than getting paid now, so they’re continuing to build out the iOS app ecosystem,” Jackson wrote.
Early this month, Apple reported that since the inception three years ago of the Apple App Store, the company has paid over $2.5 billion to app developers.
Other than the monetary compensation, what do you think are the additional reasons why majority of the app developers choose to develop apps under the iOS platform?
