					                             Developers Interest Android Apps

 Even though Google does not have to worry about Free Android Apps developers fleeing
Android en masse, they might be concerned that developer interest
appears to be headed in the wrong path.


 A new survey of much more than 2,100 app developers released jointly by
IDC and mobile development platform vendor Appcelerator Tuesday discovered
that 78.6% of developers were interested in making apps for Android
smartphones throughout the very first quarter of 2012, down from the 83.3% in Q4
of 2011 and down from around 87% in Q1 of 2011.


 Even so, Android nonetheless effortlessly generates the second-greatest level
of interest among mobile developers, as only Apple generated much more with
89% of developers saying they wanted to make apps for iOS. And Android
is nowhere close to seeing the dramatic free fall in developer interest
presently plaguing Investigation in Motion's BlackBerry OS, which saw
its developer interest plunge to 15.5% in the very first quarter of 2012,
down from 20.7% in the fourth quarter of 2011 and down from around 37%
in the first quarter of 2011.


 The essential for Android shoring up developer interest will be whether
it is effective in unifying Android smartphones and tablets below
the exact same version of its mobile operating program, thus producing far fewer
uncertainties for developers. Android 4. ("Ice Cream
Sandwich") was an critical step in this path as it was the
very first version of Android to be optimised for both tablets and
smartphones. All the very same, King says that Free Android Apps developers aren't however
embracing Ice Cream Sandwich with open arms.


 IDC and Appcelerator also discovered that Microsoft has been creating
progress in attracting mobile developers as 37% said they had been
interested in developing apps for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 8 tablets.


 In addition to its findings on developer interest in mobile
operating systems, the IDC/Appcelerator survey found that HTML5, the
programming langue pushed by Apple as an option to Adobe Flash for
on-line video, has been producing main inroads with app developers. IDC and
Appcelerator report that 78% of app developers surveyed say they
"will integrate HTML5 in their apps" this year.
 The firms say that this number is "significantly larger than industry
observers had anticipated" even late last year. The migration to
HTML5 may have been accelerated byAdobe's announcementlate last
year that it planned to begin making use of HTML5 for mobile going forward,
relegating Flash to getting a desktop video platform.
