- BlackBerry App Developers Make More Money Than iOS and Android Developers
  • BlackBerry App Developers Make More Money Than iOS and Android Developers

    According to many, BlackBerry as a platform is starving on the app front. The biggest argument I have with iOS and Android users is about how our apps suck and our phones are slow. Obviously we know this isn't totally the case as many of us depend on certain killer 3rd party apps that hard working developers make. With the launch BBM 6 and many apps becoming BBM-connected, developers are definitely helping make BlackBerry a stronger app based platform.

    This investment seems to be paying off for developers as well. A recent study conducted by Evans Data Corp asked which platform's developers make the most money and the results were surprising. According to the study, 13% of BlackBerry app developers make over $100,000; which "considerably more than Android or iOS developers."

    For some this is shocking, but I believe there's a certain logic to this fact. In an "app-starving" ecosystem, users are more likely to pay for solid apps than users on a platform that have 15 versions of the same app, with 10 of those versions being free. Apps like QuickLaunch, BerryBuzz, BerryWeather; etc, might not have had as much success on a platform that has 6 other developers making apps with similar concepts and offering them at half the price or even for free. So while for the users, app prices might be higher than on other platforms due to lack of strong competition; for developers, the BlackBerry platform is still ripe for the picking.

    The message to developers is clear: We want good apps and we're willing to pay for them.
