Vision Mobile just released it's latest report: Developer Economics 2012, focusing on five main topics: the redefinition of mobile ecosystems, developer segmentation, revenues vs. costs in the mobile economy, app marketing and distribution and regional supply versus demand of apps. The research was compiled from surveying over 1500 developers around the world.
Here are some of the takeaways:
- The average per-app revenue is in the range of $1,200-$3,900 per month, depending on platform.
- Irrespective of which platform they primarily use, the majority of developers (57%) plan to adopt Windows Phone (made even more interesting with today's Windows Phone 8 announcements)
- Tablets are now a mainstream screen for developers; more than 50% of developers are now targeting tablets, with iOS developers most likely (74%) to do so.
- North America tops app demand with 41% of developers indicating this is a top-3 download region, irrespective of their region of origin
