Windows Phone app developers spend more time on app design than developers for other platforms
According to a new survey of app developers, those writing apps for the Windows Phone platform spend more time on designing their apps, than those who write for other platforms. Windows Phone developers spend 30.2% of their time on designing their apps compared to the 21.3% of the time spent on that endeavor by iOS developers, and the 19.1% used by Android developers.

On the other hand, you might expect Windows Phone apps to be more buggy than apps on other platforms. While they are spending more of them time on app design, Windows Phone developers spend the least amount of time on de-bugging their handiwork. Android users spend 36.1% of their working time on exterminating bugs versus 24.2% for iOS developers, and  just 19.8% for Windows Phone app writers. On the other hand, they spend the most time pushing out updates (6.3% versus 4.2% for Android developers, and 3.7% of iOS writers).

Responses from 464 developers worldwide were captured in the survey. You can check out the results of the survey by looking at the chart below.
