At this point, the iPad might as well be some movie monster insofar as it’s inescapable. It’s also scary-expensive. And new stats from Flurry indicate that the iPad (or at least developer support of it) is growing at a rapid pace.
Two pie charts of “Flurry New Project Starts” show that things have really changed since 2009. Of course, in the 2009 chart, the iPad doesn’t have even the tiniest sliver of color. A “Past 60 Days” chart shows that the iPad’s share is now 22 percent, though.
This increase has occurred at the expense of everything else: BlackBerry, Android, and the iPhone.
So again, it’s a sort of good news/bad news situation for iPad developers, with this signaling that there may be plenty of users, but there will be plenty of competing apps. Good luck to everybody.
