Pretty interesting headline huh? But as much as we can find it hard to believe in this statement, accurate studies and carefully measured opinions are proving the statement correct. In a recent survey of around 2,300 mobile application developers, ComputerWorld?s collaboration with Appcelarator and IDC came into a very interesting analysis that while Apple?s iOS might be phenomenal ? citing the success of the iPhone &iPad ? this state might be only for the short-term. ComputerWorld found out that a majority of the mobile app developers are investing more on Android?s OS for the long-term benefits. The difference can probably be found in the way that these top OS developers program their systems. The research team came up with a 59%-35% ratio between Android and the iOS, 59% for Android. 75% of the people involved in the research say that Apple?s iOS is at its best on the short-term basis. Another contributing factor to Android?s sweep victory is its ability to support more devices. Apparently, Apple might need to consider dumping its within-the-box packaging.
