PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The biggest mobile developer study in history with 6,000 respondents from 115 countries says that while iOS developers make an average of $5,200 per month in app revenue and Android developers pull in $4,700, more developers plan to start developing for Windows Phone than any other platform. [...] That's aided, of course, by the fact that 71 percent of mobile developers are already developing for Android, and 56 percent are already developing for iOS." I'm surprised there's so little difference between income for iOS and Android developers. Reading the web, it often seems as if all iOS developers are millionaires and Android developers are poor unwashed peasants. Reality is, clearly, different.

... Sorry

Hey, absolutely no need to apologise. That made interesting reading and I'm glad you took the time to go into detail!

It sounds like there are some really valid areas (design and audio) where Android is less impressive than iOS. I'm sure there are others who find the opposite for some alternative area, but I'm afraid I'm not qualified to judge.

However it does also seem like enthusiasm plays an important part. Personally I'm still searching for really innovative and unexpected Apps on either Android or iOS, but I should probably search a bit harder! Your post has inspired me to take another look.
