That’s a 53% market share for Android and 29% for iOS, with BlackBerry plummeting to a mere 11%. The news came as both Apple and Google said their platforms were generating more than one billion app downloads a month each. Analytics firm Flurry has some data on why many developers are still favouring iOS though. It finds that ‘new project starts’ using the company’s analytics tools – more than 55,000 developers are, so this is a credible metric – are nearly 3:1 for iOS and Android respectively. It has also run numbers on apps that are available on both platforms, and claims that “on average, for every $1.00 generated on iOS, the same app will generate $0.24 on Android”.
