FOR THESE PLATFORMS?



With more than a million Android devices activated every day, who doesn���t want to be best friends with Google?



ANDROID 1,000,000 apps



Android is expected to hit the one-million active app milestone faster than Apple, so there���s plenty of room for growth in 2013.



CHROME



Google Chrome is currently the fastest-growing web browser and takes about 35 percent of the worldwide market share. Its generous revハラヤsharing model also makes it appealing to developers.



APPLE 35% growth



Apple���s cult-like following

guarantees a flourishing market for a wide variety of apps. The iPad market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 35 percent - good news for developers who want to work on iPad-based apps.



FACEBOOK +1

More than a billion people are on Facebook, with

680 million users who access the site on a mobile platform. Developers such as Zynga, Wooga and Electronic Arts have earned billions of dollars in revenue through Facebook games.





WIX.com



Wix has a hyper-targeted audience of 30,000,000 small business owners and entrepreneurs. Premium apps are subscription-based, so you���ll benefit from a recurring monthly payment - not just a 1-time fee.



Your app gets massive exposure without you investing any marketing dollars, and competition isn���t as fierce as with the other saturated platforms. Yet.
