A recent survey has indicated that despite Android’s popularity in app development world, it is in fact developers producing apps for the less popular BlackBerry App World who are more financially successful. 13% of BlackBerry developers earn over $100,000 per year according to the Evans Data Application Distribution survey.
Developers questioned have mostly gained experience from Android but with Apple’s iOS following a close second.
Google’s Android Market is the most used app store amongst commercial developers with 47% of commercial developers having some experience with the store compared to 43% who have used Apple’s App Store, according Evans Data’s new Application Distribution survey of over 400 commercial developers, conducted in August. In addition, Android Market edged out Apple’s App Store as the store more developers thought would be dominant in two years. However, developers selling apps through BlackBerry App World made significantly more money than developers using either Google’s or Apple’s stores.
