StartApp releases infographic answers to survey questions answered by Android app developers
StartApp is a company that offers a new monetization and distribution platform for those Android app developers who produce free apps. Features like in-app purchases and ads can be bothersome to app buyers which is why StartApp offers something different with their own platform. The company recently sent out a survey to Android developers and instead of releasing a boring report with their answers, StartApp produced a cool looking infographic look at what Android developers are doing.

32% of those responding were app virgins, looking to publish their very first app. Other than Google Play Store, 66% of those who answered the survey use the Amazon Appstore. 62% of them develop for the Android platform while 37% write for iOS, 15% for Windows Phone, 10% for BlackBerry and 7% for others.

Perhaps the most telling response was that 93% of them offer free or nearly free apps while only 7% are writing paid apps.  Of course, this is why StartApp is in business in the first place. We are sure that you would like to know which smartphone manufacturers these Android developers are toting. 53% of them own a Samsung handset while 22% have an HTC branded model. It is then a sharp drop to the 6% that own the Apple iPhone which is tied with "other brands". After that comes the 5% and 3% for Motorola and Sony respectively.

fragmentation + piracy = free low quality apps with less developer interest.

Tiny, stagnant market-share + a new OS version that won't be compatible with older devices = someone who shouldn't be talking.

OS with no mass-storage option + no multitasking + paid Angry Birds = EPIC FAIL.
