In this report, we take a close look at some of the latest trends in the mobile ecosystem, including developer Mindshare and platform prioritisation, platform adoption criteria, revenue models and revenues, as well as multi-screen development. State of the Developer Nation examines some of the top mobile platforms, pitting the three leading horses in the race (Android, iOS and HTML5) vs. the newcomers (BlackBerry 10, Windows 8 and Windows Phone) and the up-and-coming platforms (Firefox OS, Tizen, Jolla, Ubuntu).

Here’s a small selection of our numerous key findings:

  • The Mobile Developer Mindshare Q3 2013 shows Android leading at 71% of developers using the platform, followed by iOS at 56%
  • 52% of the developer population uses HTML5 technologies to develop mobile apps
  • iOS monthly revenue at $5,200 -more than Android, but gap closing
  • Mobile developers use 2.9 platforms – a shift towards diversification
