Behold, "The Smartphone App-O-Graphic!"
Each smartphone OS provider has its own set of rules and procedures to follow. Now the folks at [x] cube labs have made it easy to compare those offerings by releasing an easy-to-read chart, which we’ve presented here. Called the “The Smartphone App-o-graphic,” the [x] cube labs tool looks at the current practices of six OS providers. These include: Apple, Google, Research In Motion (RIM), Nokia, Palm, and Microsoft. For each company, [x] cube labs provides information on:
- When the OS was launched
- Number of Apps (in the United States)
- App Downloads Per Day
- Platform Support
- Developer Revenue Share
- Billing Methods
- Developer Submission Fee
