Android Community boasts that, in an increasing trend, developers are favouring Android over Apple’s iOS. Android screamed ahead of Apple last year to become the world’s most popular smartphone OS.
Some fancy new graphs show that as well as being the most popular operating system, Android is now the most profitable for app developers.
Advertisers too see dollar signs when they look at Android. Clicks on in-app ads are said to be up to three times higher with Android than iOS.
One developer in particular, namely Spacetime, withdrew its advertising from the iOS version of Pocket Legends, their stupidly popular 3D MMO game, and pumped it into the Android version instead.
Spacetime’s CEO, Gary Gattis, says: “We’ve just been blown away. Android has become our primary interest.”
Gattis reflects: “In some ways, it’s kind of like the wild, wild West, but that’s where the gold rush people made their claim.” True dat, Gar’. True dat.
