It’s funny, that when we tell people we are now developing Apps for the iPhone and iPad, we get a response… “What about Android” They have a bigger market than Apple.
While technically the Android is gaining ground fast, it would appear that owners of Android products don’t actually use them!
Here is an extract of some data from Google Analytics about the use of iPhone, iPad and Android devices. on 15 March 2011.
Notice that there is one category for Android devices. If you lump the iPhone and iPad devices into one, you get a massive 1345 vs 153. or a whopping 11% for Android. Now if you were us and developing for a market. Would you go for the 11% market that Android has?
So Android lovers, either get on your mobile devices and browse / buy like crazy, or accept that fact that your device is less used in the real world than you would like!
