The Android Market still has a ways to catch up with Apple's App Store, but new research indicates that the winds of change are a blowing.
A study entitled "Mobile Developer Economics 2010 and Beyond" found that developers are gravitating toward Android, making it the most-used platform for mobile developers in 2010, TechEye reports. Vision Mobile surveyed more than 400 developers worldwide working on iOs for the iPhone, Android, Symbian, BlackBerry, Java ME, Windows Phone, Flash Lite and mobile Web.
The study showed that 60 percent of the respondents had been or were working on Android projects. Roughly 50 percent of developers said the same of iOS and Java. Developers cited market penetration and revenue potential as the two largest factors in choosing a platform, according to I4U News. Developers were also keen on the power and choice Android provided.
