Apple’s iOS (s aapl) still dominates among app developers, but it may be losing its edge. According to a recent GigaOM Pro survey (subscription required), both iOS and Android (s goog) use is growing, but app developers are adopting Android at a faster rate. The web-based study surveyed 352 app developers on everything from who they are to where they sell their apps to how much money they make.
It asked them which platforms they currently use and which they plan to develop on next year. The growth in the percentage of developers using Android to create mobile apps is nearly twice that of iOS; and it’s four times as fast (on Android vs iOS) for tablet apps.
