The Rise of the New App Economy

By August 14, 2012Infographic

For the past three years VisionMobile has surveyed developers around the world to gain insight into why they make the choices they do. The result has been a series of Developer Economics Reports. The third report in the series, Developer Economics 2012: The New Mobile App Economy, focuses on five main areas: The redefinition of mobile ecosystems, developer segmentation, revenues vs. costs in the mobile economy, app marketing and distribution, and regional supply vs. demand of apps. It’s an excellent read for anyone interested in development trends and the mobile app economy. Plus, it’s free and who doesn’t like that? You can download it here. Don’t have time to read the whole report? You’re in luck, my friend, because the fun starts after the report goes out.

VisionMobile’s Matos Kapetanakis does a particularly great job visualizing all the of interesting tidbits of information they garner from the reports into easy to digest infographics. The infographic below presents the most popular platforms for mobile developers, which screens developers are currently targeting, most profitable vs. most expensive mobile platforms and regional demand vs. supply of apps.
