PostAndroid Apps Make Less Money Than iPhone Apps

Well if you are one of Android developers then you may complain about making less money than iPhone apps on the App Store, and we have got a report from Yankee Group and Skyhook that say the sales of apps in the United States are booming, with 40 apps being bought per user, per year.




The results aren’t equally as good reading for Android and iOS developers however, with users of Google’s mobile OS buying less apps.

The reason that Android apps are less profitable than App Store apps? Oddly enough, piracy…

Quote :
Piracy is a problem for Android. Among the Android developers surveyed, 27 percent see piracy as a huge problem and another 26 percent see it as somewhat of a problem.
Google isn’t helping. Fifty-three percent of developer respondents say Google is too lax in its Android Market policies.
Piracy hurts developers’ top and bottom lines. About a third of developers say piracy has cost them in excess of $10,000 in revenue. Additionally, 32 percent say it increases their support costs, while another quarter say they see increased server costs due to heavy loads imposed by pirated copies.

So what do you think ? Some hackers are going to do a piracy against Android itself...
Stay tuned for more updates...
