re: Why Developers Still Target iOS Ahead Of Android
Actually, the marketshare for the iPhone increased from 2010 to 2011 by 38% compared to a decrease in share of 14% from 2009 to 2010 according to NPD.
In contrast, Android's marketshare growth is now plateauing having dropped from 367% in 2010 to only 28% in 2011 (NPS).
Also, you are only counting the iPhone, while the iOS platform is far bigger with the iPod touch and iPad almost doubling the number of iOS devices out there.
With 250 million iOS devices sold versus 190 million Android, combined with the far more lucrative demographic who purchase Apple's devices, it is not surprising that iOS developers make 800% the income of Android devs.
