Facebook Mobile User Counts Revealed: 192M Android, 147M iPhone, 48M iPad, 56M Messenger
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Facebook!
Further proof that Android is now firmly #1 in mobile going forward:
Android’s growth momentum means Facebook for Android needs to become its premier app. Facebook’s competition with Google might make that painful, but it needs to stick to its social layer strategy. It should view building an incredible Android app as a way to take advantage of Google’s mobile install base, not the other way around.
Numbers like this always make me wonder why some companies develop apps in iOS first.
...sent from my android...
I was informed by some app developers that the Android users are less likely to buy paid apps or upsell to an in app purchase. I can't confirm this although I'm sure there is some research out there.
Older post but some of the comments agree with you.
That has been true in the past. Unclear if it will be clear in the future.
