App developers still favor iOS despite Android's lead in marketshare
Flurry's research reveals that 75% of new mobile app projects using Flurry's Analytics software used the iOS version of it during Q3 of this year. That is up from 63% of new mobile apps that used the iOS version of Flurry's software earlier this year. Google Chairman Eric Schmidt recently said that developers would favor Android in 2012 because of its lead in marketshare, but that doesn't seem to be the case so far.
Money might play a large part in this favoritism toward iOS. Flurry's metrics show that more money is spent on the iOS platform than on Android. For example, for every $1.00 that an app brings in on iOS, it generates just 24 cents on Android. Some of the reason for this is the easier payment method that is found on the App Store although Android is working on closing the gap using Google Wallet.
