FierceDeveloper Predictions for 2011

Jason AnkenyAnother year has dawned, and you know what that means: It's time to compile your list of New Year's Resolutions--and if you're a mobile software developer, chances are you've resolved to earn some serious cash in 2011. According to a recent survey conducted by mobile advertising network Millennial Media, 31 percent of developers expect mobile application revenues to increase 100 percent or more this year, with another 17 percent anticipating an increase of 50 percent or more. Only 10 percent of developers believe revenues will remain flat.

So what's going to drive this revenue growth? A tidal wave of new iPhone owners, for starters, along with Android emerging as a growing force in the workforce--or at least that's what I'm forecasting. Read on as FierceDeveloper predicts the events and trends that will shape the year to come in mobile software development--an industry that's anything but predictable.

Check out FierceDeveloper's predictions for 2011.
