Developer Releases of Android and iOS Attract Equal Attention

A new report from an analyst at Chitika suggests that developer interest in Android may be catching up to developer interest in iOS. It notes that developer downloads of the most recent beta of iOS 6 accounted for 0.11 percent of all iOS traffic during the first 24 hours after its release on July 16. "Interestingly, Google’s release of Android Jelly Bean [to developers on July 9] has been met with a nearly identical amount of enthusiasm, with usage rates the first full day following its release, hitting 0.10 percent of all Android traffic," stated the report.

"At some point, Android even could surpass iOS" in terms of developer interest, said Chitika's Andrew Waber. "It's certainly possible. The trends are pointing that way. The levels of developer interest … have equalized after years of being weighted toward iOS."
