Infographic: Two thirds of Android users don't pay for apps

This Statista infographic compares iOS and Android users' willingness to pay for apps.

Statista recently published an infographic by Online Publishers Association that compares the willingness of Android and iOS users to pay for apps. According to the graphic, Android devices make up almost 70% of global smartphone shipments, yet 66% of the Android users included in the survey haven't paid anything for apps in the past year.

For app developers, does it make more sense to focus on Android and get a broader reach or potentially earn more money by developing for iOS? Share your opinion in the discussion thread below.
