We have been hearing quite a bit about Android fragmentation recently, Google obviously thinks it is a problem as they are making changes in an attempt to stop Android Fragmentation.
It seems that Google are not the only ones who think Android fragmentation is a problem for their mobile OS, according to a recent survey conducted by Baird Research, who surveyed a total of 250 application developers, 87 percent of them thought that Android fragmentation was a problem for the platform.
Out of the 250 developers surveyed, only 14 percent thought that Android fragmentation was not a problem, which 56 percent thought it was a ‘meaningfull’ or ‘huge’ problem.
What is also interesting from the survey, out of the 250 developers that were surveyed, 71 percent are developing applications for Google’s Android Market and 62 percent are developing applications for Apple’s App Store.
The developers also expressed concern over app store fragmentation, and developers seem to prefer a unified single store rather that having to deal with multiple stores, and they are also concerned about visibility and some have mentioned the level of ‘junk’ apps available in the Android Market.
