iOS Versus Droid

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 02:00 AM

"The topic of smartphone operating systems can be as divisive as politics or the Mac vs. PC debate. (Just add snide comments about dropped calls.) We delved into our Teach Hunch About You (THAY) questions to figure out what we can learn about Android vs. iPhone users, and our friends at Column Five Media performed some of their infographic magic on the resulting data."

I know, I know, the graphic says Droid vs. iOS, but I am kind of biased the other way, which makes sense since iOS owners are 39% more likely to be high maintenance. At least according to this latest Teach Hunch survey. I prefer to think of it as leading the way, which also makes sense since iOS owners are 27% more likely to lead. I found this an interesting read, entertaining if nothing else.

In New Survey Developers Pick Android Over iPhone

"A new survey from Vision Mobile and Bluevia finds that Android is the most popular mobile platform amongst developers, with 67 percent of mobile developers indicating they're developing for Android in 2011-that's an 8 percent improvement over 2010."

We have a winner, folks! A new survey just released from Vision Mobile and Bluevia found that Android is the most popular platform for developers! But not far behind is development for iPhone. Does this mean that Android is slated to be the market leader in years to come?

So How Are You Using Your Tablet?

"Google has released results of a survey (PDF) on user behavior with regard to tablet computers, the vast majority of which are iPads. Responses indicate that tablet ownership significantly changes our media consumption habits and computer use."

Wednesday we posted a story about how the iPad might be killing consumer PC sales and asked the question of you, was this true for you? What do you use your iPad for and did it replace your PC? There were varying answers to our question, and now this study comes out that shows just how people are using their tablets. In this study (available here in PDF form) it says that for 43% of the responders, the tablet has replaced their PC. Also interesting to me is that playing games tops the list. I would have thought "consuming entertainment" or one of the reading categories would have displaced that, or that they would have at least been higher on the list. But that is my perspective I suppose, since that is what I use my iPad for most of the time. How about you? Does this go along with how you use your tablet or do the results surprise you?

Android Users Hate In-App Ads Way Less Than Other Mobile OS Users Says Nielsen

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android News" @ 03:00 PM

"Android users are more likely to click on ads within apps than people using other mobile operating systems, according to a new report on mobile applications by the Nielsen Company. One-third of Android users have clicked on an in-app ad compared to 29% for those with Windows Mobile, Apple's iOS, 26%, Palm, 22%, BlackBerry, 15%, and other types of operating systems, 24%."

This is quite an interesting writeup of a recent Nielsen cross platform mobile app survey. The biggest takeaway is that Android users are more likely than any other mobile OS user to click on those in-app ads. This is good news for developers out there looking for a little extra cash flow. It is also good news for Android in general as it may be a good attractor to get new developers over to the platform. The rest of the article is worth a read as it goes into more detail about what type of app different OS users download most and paid vs free and such. So what about you? Are you an in-app ad clicker or hater?
