Based on the answers of 3,400 developers across Europe, North America and Asia, the “Developer Economics” report offers some insights into what developers are after and what’s proving successful.
Android and iOS are still the big hitters, with 72% of respondents developing for Android (up 4% from the last survey). Some 56% of respondents are developing for iOS, down 5% on the last report.
