While Apple’s AppStore is probably a gold mine to (a few) developers, Google’s Android Market might be a different case. A recent Skyhook Wireless Survey indicates that there are some issues that developers face. The stats indicate that:
- 82% of those surveyed indicated that the design of the Android Market makes it difficult for apps to be noticed;
- 57% are not satisfied with the profits to date;
- 43% report that they would sell more apps if Android used a carrier billing or another simpler billing system (other than Google Checkout);
- Only 10% of Android developers are currently serving ads.
Aside from that, the various versions of the OS make testing apps a tough job, as it isn’t easy to support so many versions. Should Google look into a method for sorting this out?
