[Infographic] Developer Economics 2013: Dev tools are the foundation of the app economy

We’d like to present our latest infographic, based on the latest Developer Economics report – themed around developer tools. This infographic presents some of the key findings from the published report (which is available for download here).

  • 72% of developers use Android, 56% use iOS – HTML is the third most popular choice among mobile developers, 50% of whom use the HTML-based set of technologies as a deployment or development platform
  • 67% of developers are below the “app poverty line” of $500 per app per month –  BlackBerry and Windows Phone lagging behind in terms of monetisation, but leading platforms also have issues. 61% of iOS and 68% of Android developers are below the poverty line
  • 74% of developers use two or more platforms concurrently – Multi-platform offers much better monetisation potential, as developers who use more than one platform have higher revenues than those who just use one
  • Advertising is the most popular revenue model, used by 38% of developers – but subscriptions pay more
  •  Ad services are reaching mass adoption for developers – 34% are using at least one ad-service tool – 90% of developers use at least one third-party tool or service, with an average of 1.47 tools used concurrently

    Interesting one!!! And yes Android is becoming the preferable platform for most of the developers. The ease in usability is one among the main reasons in it.
