It is a new gold era for mobile App devel­op­ers and the plat­form war is already live on our screens. It is notable that new App devel­op­ment is ris­ing at a fast pace while users are expe­ri­enc­ing the mobile lifestyle much more on a daily base and for many dif­fer­ent purposes.

Accord­ing to a report by the San Jose Busi­ness Jour­nal, devel­op­ment mar­ket share for mobile plat­form is for the sec­ond quar­ter expand­ing for Apple iOS and shrink­ing for the Android ecosystem.

Out of 100 devel­op­ers around the world, 57 of them are devel­op­ing Apps for iOS, 15 are embrac­ing the tablet mar­ket tar­get­ing the iPad and 28 are in the wild with the Android mul­ti­facet plat­form. Between Q1 and Q2 2011 it is a 3% raise for iOS, 5% raise for iPad and 8% shrink for Android.
