Thanks to John Gruber’s clever arithmetic, we now know that the iPad is outselling Android tablets 24-to-1.
It’s easy to forget in the marketshare battle that Apple’s dominance is much larger than phones. iOS software runs on three platforms: iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, with a combined install base of over 200 million units. Not to mention Apple’s 11% North America market share in the computer world, which has its own app store.
That’s why we’re focused on delivering native software for Apple platforms. While we see room for growth in the Android market, we believe that the iPhone and iPad will continue to be the #1 mobile development platforms for the forseeable future. The iPad is growing so quickly that it’s eclipsing the need for PCs in many situations, but only at the rate that important software can be written and adapted, an important bottleneck.
We’ve written many iPad applications for companies large and small. Contact us to learn about how the iPad can work for your business today.
