Previously, we have discussed why developers are more willing to work on iOS platform compare to Android. The main reason why developers are reluctant to work on Android platform is its fragmentation. A mobile platform company—Appcelerator—in conjunction with market research firm—IDC—conducted a survey over 3,500 Appcelerator developers around the world to find out the developers’ interest for creating enterprise applications with different platforms.

Developers Prefer More To Work On iOS Than Android  

Apps developers are still more willing to work on iOS platform for creating enterprise mobile apps than Android. On questioning to respondents that which platform to win in the enterprise long terms, 53.2% of apps developers polled for iOS, while 37.3% were in the support of Android. In the second quarter of this year, Apple was leading over Google’s Android by 16% in terms of developers’ interest for the enterprise apps development. Almost a year before, when the similar survey was conducted over developers, Android and iOS shared the same majority.

Microsoft Leveraging Over Office And Windows OS

However, like Android, RIM’s impression (on developers)  has also been deteriorating in the enterprise space quarter-over-quarter; just 2% of developers (during survey period) were in the favor of the Canadian handset manufacturer.  It’s is considered that Android platform is suitable in consumers’ aspect. In addition to these, developers’ interest is increasing for Windows 8.  In the past three-quarters the scenario has been changed, in 3Q 2011, when developers viewed equal opportunities in both iOS and Android; each got 44% of support.

Developers’ interest to work on Android platform has been deteriorated in the last four quarters. The popularity of Android is increasing due to the sales of its handsets and more affordable price. But due to fragmentation and monetization, developers’ interests are decreasing quarter-over-quarter. Developers are cautiously optimistic about Windows 8 due to its Metro UI. However, Microsoft has already made its impression among enterprises by Office and Windows OS.

Developers Are Committed To The Cloud

It has been noticed that mobile developers remain committed to the cloud; 83% of all developers has planned to use cloud solution. Among developers, Amazon’s cloud and Apple’s iCloud are on the top priority list, while Microsoft’s Azure trails with the tepid interest. 50.4% developers plan to work with iCloud and 49.1% plan to work with Amazon, but only 18.6% are willing to work with Microsoft’s Azure. Two-third developers (66%) use multiple platform development tools to build apps. 33% developers (respondents) said they are interested in Windows 8 Tablet. However, developers’ interest to work on Windows phone 7 dropped sharply from 37% in Q1 of this year to 25% in Q2 of the same year.
