Following The White Rabbit

Following the White Rabbit Android Developer infographic

Who is the mastermind behind your favorite android application? Do you wonder what kind of music they like? The Following the White Rabbit infographic from Startapp.com gives us the low down on what kinds of people are behind Android applications based on a survey they did in March 2012.

Have you ever wondered what kind of people make Android applications? Well wonder no more! We at StartApp decided to investigate this in depth by creating a special Android developer survey which we sent out to all of our Android developers who kindly participated in the survey! Therefore, we are now very proud to present our first infographic that explores everything from the companies Android developers work for to the music they listen to and everything in between. Let us know what you think!

This is a cool infographic that does a good job with the visualizations.  With survey data, it’s a challenge to visualize the results correctly.  Some survey answers add up to 100%, but some questions are asked where the respondent can “check all that apply” so these answers are separate.  The pie charts in the coffee cups, the doughnut charts  and the stacked bar are examples of survey questions that add up to 100% (except the stacked bar adds up to 101% due to rounding, so they should have displayed the tens decimal place).

“What App Markets do you use?” and “What OS’s Do You Develop Apps for?” are some of the multiple answer questions, so the answers are displayed as separate bars or doughnut charts with the appropriate logos.  A couple results are displayed with the wrong type of graphic.  “How Many Apps Have You Published so far?” and “What Would Be Your Preferred Pastime” should both be shown adding up to 100%.

The overall design is a bit crowded with a lot of visual noise, but the statistics are easy to understand.  The coffee-brown color and the overlapping visualizations give the visual impression of working late nights and juggling many details, just like an app coder does.

At the bottom, there should be a copyright statement and the URL to find the original infographic landing page.

Why didn't you comment on the glaring mistake where the designer accidentally used the exact same circle percentage graph for every answer to "What OS's do you develop apps for?" Only the first circle graph visually matches the percentage of 62%. All the others have a circle graph that shows 62% even though the responses were less.

hey, this one's definately improvable.
just try a little calculation from the beginning :

45 + 27 + 7 + 22 = 101 ...

haha, and i just revealed myself as a non-reader of the blog post : ! very funny, indeed.

(but the rounding can only happen if you have two values that had a five after the period, otherwise the parity (?!) would have been rounded correctly)

What brand of mobile device do you own?

Sum for this question might be above 100% because same person may own several devices of different brands (e.g. both HTC and Apple)

But...
53 + 22 + 6 + 6 + 5 + 3 = 95%
Confusing. Does it meant that AT LEAST 5% doesn't own any device at all?
