Hello,
I was reading and came across an author who said that apps written for the Android are the most popular. ie. Sell the most, I guess, maybe downloaded if was free.. I was wondering what is considered the native program language he talks about. Thanks!

Native Android apps are developed with Java (and XML).

But bear in mind that "most popular" (assertion suspect) doesn't always equate to "most profitable"

Can you post the details (tell us who said it, and where)? I would be interested in what context he said "apps written for the Android are the most popular": native Android apps versus web apps? Android apps versus iOS/other mobile apps?

Yeah, that's why I questioned the assertion; not only is the context missing, but the term "most popular" can mean a number of things.

Which is "most popular": a free app that's downloaded hundreds of times but not used? Or an app that's downloaded only a handful of time and used prodigiously?
