Research firm VisionMobile has issued the biggest mobile developer study to date. The study consisted of 6,000 participants from 115 different countries. The report “tracks the state of mobile ecosystems, developer mindshare, monetisation trends, revenue models and developer tools.”
According to the findings, iOS is on average the most profitable platform to develop on. An IOS developer on average makes $5,200 on in-app revenue a month, while android developers make about $4,700. However, Android is still more popular. 72 percent told researchers they already developed for Android while 57 percent already developed for iOS. The two are closely trailed by HTML5 mobile with 52 percent.
