29 percent of existing Apple users and 13 percent of non-Apple owners said iCloud could make them more likely to buy Apple products.


The Flurry reveals the data it has tracked from developers. It states

During the second quarter of this year Android holds only 28 percent in the total app development projects startups. 57 percent of projects were attracted by iPhone and iPod Touch app development, while iPad attracts 15 percent.

In the first quarter Android was in a better position with grabbing 36 percent of project startups and iPhone got 54 percent, leaving 10 percent for iPad app project startups.

According to experts, these facts reveal the impact of the launch of Verizon iPhones and iPad 2. We think Android can provide a fitting reply to the challenge of Apple.
