Android jobs rocket as iOS jobs stagnate

Using data from 230,614 positions posted in Q3, Freelancer.co.uk saw 16 percent growth in the number of Android jobs, at 4,795. Meanwhile, the number of iOS jobs rose a comparatively small eight percent to 5,509.

In the previous quarter, the number of Apple jobs shot up by 30 percent. To an extent, this quarter’s comparatively feeble growth came about as developers waited for the release of iOS6 in September. But there’s no doubt that the poor reception for the iPhone 5 had an effect.
