Apple’s well oiled machine continues to draw a disproportionate share of developer attention and love to its iOS platform. And not just “fart apps”. Increasing numbers of developers are betting on iOS as the best positioned mobile OS to succeed in enterprise market.
A recent survey from Appcelerator now pegs that 53% of app developers are chose iOS as the enterprise winner vs. 38% picking Android. As Blackberry (among its many problem) has learned to its woe, developer sentiment and dedication are a huge factor in gaining and maintaining market penetration for a mobile OS. And iOS is the undisputed (at least for now) 900 pound gorilla in this category.
Hopefully this increasing push into the enterprise space will cause Apple to move to fix some of iOS still not insignificant security and device management issues.
