BlackBerry developers earn more from their creations than those writing on iOS or Android
Evans Data Corp. recently completed research to see which mobile platform was the most profitable for developers to write for. And surprisingly, despite constantly faulted for not having enough app choices, the BlackBerry OS was named as the best money making OS for developers. 400 commercial developers were polled and it turned out that 13% of 'Berry app developers make $100,000 or more from their creation. Evans Data says that the figure is "considerably more than Android or iOS developers".

In the same report, Evans Data showed that it had asked the same 400 developers about what their biggest complaint about app stores is. The most votes went to App Visibility with 37.3% of the response. The approval process and restrictions came in 2nd and 3rd with 26.9% and 22.9% of the votes, respectively.

Asked to pick which app store will be on top two years from now, 30.2% of the 400 developers selected the Android Market with Apple's App Store a close second with 28.4% of the vote. Windows Marketplace came in third, followed by Nokia's Ovi Store. BlackBerry App World came in seventh.
