Google is looking to take a bigger bite out of the downloadable app market, according to the Wall Street Journal. The market generated by the popularity of their Android platform is significant enough to warrant their decision to hire more developers to create in-house apps that can be sold. In-house apps created by Google gather 100% of the revenue for the search giant, rather than the 30% share they receive for third-party apps.
Google’s mobile aspiration is just another example of a rapidly opening job market for mobile developers in both Android and iOS platforms.
