What PowerBuilder Users Are Planning for Mobile Development

The first sets of results are in for the Mobile Development Survey

The first sets of results are in for the Mobile Development Survey. After only a few weeks of release, there have been hundreds of responses from PowerBuilder users. Here's a little sneak peek at some of the results we've compiled so far:

The eternal battle between Android and Apple-iOS continues, so which platforms are a must for organizations developing with PowerBuilder? Eighty-seven percent are looking to use Android, with Apple not far behind at 77%. It's no surprise that the two OS industry leaders are strongly represented in the survey. However, Windows Phone 7, representing only 1.5% of today's smartphone market sales, has taken a surprising third place. This is in line with the predictions of certain analysts, who see a successful return of Microsoft on the OS mobile market. Only time will tell if these predictions will come true...

As a whole, the survey shows the profile of mobile developments that PowerBuilder users are currently preparing:

  • Will they target Smartphones or Tablets?
  • Are they going to be HTML5 or native applications?
  • Will developers migrate existing PB applications or create new ones?

To find out the answers to the above questions and more, click here where you can get access to all the results after filling out the survey yourself.
