Really interesting report came out recently about developer economics.
Key takeaways for me were:
- "Third party tools are a critical part of successful app businesses. There’s a strong correlation between tool use and revenues, the more tools a developer uses, the more money they make."
- 67% of mobile app developers primarily target consumers and 11% target professionals directly. The 16% of developers who target enterprises are twice as likely to be earning over $5k per app per month and almost 3 times as likely to earn more than $25k per app per month.
- 2% of all app developers pull in over 50 percent of all app revenue.
- 47% of devs either make literally no money.
Pretty damning stats.
