Considering that the number of Android apps has almost caught up to the number of iOS apps, it would suggest that there seems to be more or equal interest by developers in creating apps for Android. Interestingly though, according to a survey conducted by Appcelerator of more than 5,500 developers, it has shown that iOS still remains of high interest and based on the graph above, it would suggest that interest in developing for Android is on the decline.
Of course this isn’t the end-all of surveys nor is it definitive as 76% of the developers polled have still expressed interest in developing for Android. However this is measured against the 87% of January of 2011, suggesting that even though interest is still high, it has fallen by a bit. Some have speculated that this might be due to iOS monetizing better, but what do you guys think? Any developers for iOS/Android out there like to share their views?
