Here’s some interesting information for you:
Splits up available apps by price, category, platform, etc.
Particularly intriguing was this data point:
“Number of unique developers: 62,126″
Presumably they mean “the number of developer accounts offering apps for download”. But how many is that, actually? Take us, for instance, personally we’re the only developer behind all the apps in one, two, three … twelve different accounts total it looks like. So if everyone was like us, there’s less than 5,200 actual iOS programmers out there. However, no doubt our ratio of 1/12th of a programmer per developer account — and counting!! — is on the unusual side. Probably a good number of those other 62,114 accounts have multiple programmers, in fact. So one does wonder what the actual number of active iOS programmers out there is. How about all of you? How many different client developer accounts are you responsible for?
