If you decide to take the path of mobile application development, you should certainly read this potentially useful material to the last point. How much do app developers earn? And how profitable it can be for you, we will now tell you.
It's no secret that the iOS platform is not only the most expensive mobile platform today, but also the most profitable. Next, we will reveal the little secrets of the huge profits of developers.
Thanks to the statistics on revenues from mobile applications for different platforms, which was collected by VisionMobile, we opened the curtain of the "application economy", the cost of developing some programs and the earnings of mobile application gurus for iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone.
It is important to know
Let's go through the most informative and significant facts in the field of mobile application development, for those who have decided to take this business seriously.
Geo Targeting: Your potential buyers may be from all over the world, but the main regions are North America, Europe and Asia. The population in these regions most actively purchases applications - 41%, 31% and 25%, respectively.
Forecasts: According to VisionMobile, the trend of demand for mobile applications will shift towards the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) because the mobile technology market is most developed there.
A rapid growth in the volume of the market for the development of mobile applications is predicted in those regions that are now not very developed.
Devices: The recent dominance of the tablet PC clearly demonstrates the potential that will further fuel the mobile app market to a greater extent. Development of applications for iPad in the future will be 74%.
Only the best: Those who develop mobile applications do not sit out on unpromising platforms. An example of this is RIM, which lost 41% of BlackBerry developers in a year.
Stores: Online stores App Store and Google Play generate 54% of the revenue from hosted content for developers, being the main sources of income as opposed to such minor sources as websites (18%) and special projects (12%).
Income: Do not indulge yourself in the idea that all developers have a huge income. 35% of applications bring the creator $ 1-500 per month, 14% - from $ 500 to 1000, and only 13% get from $ 1000 per month.
Cost: Averages say that it takes about three months and about $ 27,000 to develop an iPhone or iPad application. This is 21% higher than Android and 81% higher than BlackBerry.
The fact remains that developers give an undeniable preference towards the iOS platform, arguing that it is an easier opportunity to earn money and learn its basics. And statistics tell us that iOS applications more accurately reach the selected target audience and correspond to the nested goals.
