A new survey from IDC and Appcelerator finds that 79 percent of mobile developers plan to integrate HTML5 into their apps this year. However, because different browsers handle HTML5 content in different ways, fragmentation will make use of HTML5 tricky.
When it comes to mobile platforms, Apple still reigns with 89 percent of survey respondents very interested in developing for iPhone and 88 percent very interested in iPad. Interest in Android has flagged somewhat, falling from 87 percent to 79 percent very interested in developing for Android smartphones. Only 66 percent of those surveyed are now interested in Android tablets. Fragmentation may also be to blame for some of the declining interest in the Android platform.
