Developers who are 'very interested' in developing for each platform (IDC / Appcelerator)
Developers saying they are 'very interested' in iOS and Android development is still much higher that Windows Phone (89% for iPhone, 86% for iPad, 77% for Android Phones, and 64% for Android tablets), but 39% of developers plan to build cross platform apps for three or more operating systems.
In terms of trends to watch out for, developers expect to see more...
- Mobile enabled commerce.
- Purchasing and retail using NFC.
- Augmented reality becoming commonplace on smartphones.
