In yesterday’s blog post we spoke about the large market share of Android, and some important development considerations. According to a recent report by comScore Android OS has achieved a market share over 50% in America. 51.8% of American smart phone users use Android, 34.3% iOS, 8.1% Blackberry, and 4.3% use Windows Phones.
