I like iOS. I absolutely despise Android. To quote Steve, “I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple’s $40bn in the bank, to right this wrong; I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.” And if you ask – What about RIM and Microsoft Phone OS? Well, BB RIM is for my grandpa and Microsoft Phone – that’s the worst mobile OS on earth, undoubtedly. Garbage shit – I may say!
Let’s now get into the figures. Cause – revenue is what matters! As simple as that.
*According to analyst Gene Munster at Piper Jaffray, Apple commands 85 to 90 percent of mobile app dollars, with Google’s Android Market Place generating just 7 percent of the gross revenue of the App Store. Munster anticipates Apple will continue to hold more than 70 percent of mobile app dollars going forward.
Apple developers have made more than $3.4 billion since the App Store opened.
Google developers have made around $240 million.
That’s why son, if you wish to make some money for yourself, bin that Android phone you have, get an iPhone 4S, install iOS SDK on your Mac, learn some Objective-C and kick some ass.
But does this mean – all is lost for Android developers? Well, technically nope. Cause the battle for mid-Earth has just begun. In fact, Android developers can hit back hard on Apple with the few forth-coming Android releases being extremely vital for them. After all, Apple totally stole its new Notifications Center for iOS 5 from Android. Thus, lets see – who can innovate more and bring more exciting features in the forth-coming releases. Its full-time game on!
