For developers at least, the App Store is getting the love again

For developers at least, the App Store is getting the love againTalking about Apple and apps right now may be a bit of a touchy subject after yesterdays' news that App Store prices are going up, but from a developer point of view Apple is once again growing in appeal.

We say once again, as for a while now Android has been on the up and up – might be something to do with that massive increase in market share. But it looks like that momentum is finally tailing off.

The latest info from Flurry, which assists developers with app data and an advertising platform, shows that the number of new apps written for iOS in Q2 had risen, while Android's cut of the action fell a touch after a long period of growth.

Flurry reckons the turnaround is down to the iPad 2's launch and the CDMA iPhone finally landing on Verizon over in the States.

Momentum or not, the App Store remains the number one example of its kind by a long way, having now gone past 15 billion downloads in total.
