CWmike writes “A majority of mobile app developers see Android as the smart bet over the long run even as they vote for Apple’s iOS in the short term, according to a survey conducted jointly by Appcelerator and IDC. The survey polled more than 2,300 developers who use Appcelerator’s Titanium cross-platform compiler to produce iOS and Android native apps. Of the 2,300 polled, 59% said that Android had the ‘best long-term outlook,’ compared with just 35% who pegged Apple’s iOS with that label. But three out of four said that iOS offers the best ‘near-term’ outlook, with 76% tagging Apple’s operating system as the best revenue opportunity.”
