Android Developer Survey (Infographic)

Have you ever wondered what kind of people make Android apps? This infographic has answers, not only about their working environment but also about their pastimes and preferences

It presents the results of a survey conducted in March 2012 by StartApp of the developers enrolled in its monetization and distribution platform for Android applications.

StartApp offers developers $50 per 1000 downloads of their own apps in the US in return for incorporating its search engine and $10 per 1000 for downloads in other parts of the world - and this probably accounts for the fact the United States comes top in response to the question "Where do you live?". 

The other respect in which the survey may not be representative is that a third of the respondents haven't yet published an app. Even so the answers are fairly revealing:

58% are independent developers

Only 22% work in companies of 10 or more people

For 58% Android App development is their main job

46% develop apps for tablets as well

The clearest statistic from the survey is that 93% of the apps developed are free - but if you are getting plenty of revenue from an app you probably wouldn't enroll in StartApp's monetization scheme.

So who is the typical Android dev?

There's no info on gender but we are safe in assuming male predominates. He's in has late twenties, enjoys outdoor activities and listens to rock or pop.Well that's an oversimplification and there's plenty of information included in the graphic.
