Developer Economics 2012 is a detailed report by Vision Mobile into the world of mobile app development. The report is now into it’s third year and BlueVia is proud to sponsor the report again in 2012 in order to make it freely available to everyone. We want to congratulate the team on their hard work too, it’s looking better than ever.
Some of the highlights of this year’s report include:
- The average per-app revenue is in the range of $1,200-$3,900 per month, depending on platform
- Irrespective of which platform they primarily use, the majority of developers (57%) plan to adopt Windows Phone
- Tablets are now a mainstream screen for developers: more than 50% of developers are now targeting tablets, with iOS developers most likely (74%) to do so
- North America tops app demand with 41% of developers indicating this is a top-3 download region, irrespective of their region of origin
The insights are compiled from surveying over 1,500 developers and supported by detailed qualitative interviews. We believe it’s the most comprehensive report for the business of mobile app development. Get yourself a copy at the Vision Mobile site.
