Mobile App Dev 2022 Q2
Google search trends for mobile dev 4/1/22 to 7/1/22
If you are looking into mobile application development and are curious which is more popular in Google searches, I have provided some search results below. I have included some screenshots for US and Worldwide search from 4/1/2022 to 7/1/2022.
You can see that Android development searches almost consistently outpaced iOS development searches, then Flutter development fell below both. This is understandable as Flutter is a new language.
Worldwide the pattern is similar to the US, but the Android trend line is further above that of the iOS line.
I did searches on Dice.com and Indeed.com for iOS developer and Android developer in a few large cities in the USA. In each city, the number of Android developer jobs that returned were about 5–10% higher in each city.
Ultimately, this may not be the best indicator of which is more popular, as I am just sharing a single data source. From a few searches, a few news letter articles I have read in the past few months and a handful of YouTube videos discussing the topic, in general Android development general shows more interest. These trends may change over time, but it could be one factor you can use decide which platform to learn and develop on.
I plan to write more articles related to this in the future, thanks for reading.
