Popular Developer Calls It Quits on Android

Mobile development firm Mika Mobile has decided to stop supporting the Android platform. In a blog post, the company explained, “We spent about 20% of our total man-hours last year dealing with Android in one way or another — porting, platform specific bug fixes, customer service, etc. ? Meanwhile, Android sales amounted to around 5% of our revenue for the year, and continues to shrink. Needless to say, this ratio is unsustainable.”

The big problem, says the developer, was fragmentation. The company had to spend too much time testing that its apps worked on all of the various OS versions and Android hardware. Mika Mobile plans to continue supporting its apps for Apple’s iOS platform.
