iOS App Development Falls As Android Explodes. Even Windows Phone 7 Will Get More.

The shift in priority by app developers from iOS to Android is accelerating. There’s even a surge toward developing for Windows Phone 7.

That’s great news for Android phone buyers and for the MicroNok alliance.

The drop in ratio of iOS app development from 30% to only 8%, even if relative to a surge in overall app developer numbers, is dramatic.

The State Of The Apps Industry study lead by Millennial Media with Stifel Nicolaus and DIGIDAY was released in the last quarter of 2010 before the MicroNok alliance was announced and before the Android dominated Mobile World Congress in early February.

As a harbinger of the seismic shifts taking place in the mobile apps industry, the SOTI report can only be understating the points we have headlined.

  1. Thank you for taking the time to post. I just bought a windows 7 cell & love it. Everyone keeps telling me that I should have gotten an iphone just because of the apps. I’m glad to see that there’s a surge toward development for Windows Phone 7.

  2. I can see the Android development, but I’m having a hard time with the Windows 7 stuff. I’ve had all three within the last year and can say that I’d rather have a 1983 Nokia than the Windows phone back.
