According to the recent survey conducted by Strategy Analytics, the number of application development for Windows platform will double in the coming year. The poll was performed on more than 1,600 Mobile Apps Developers and it was discovered that at least 32 percent of developers plan to create applications for the Microsoft platform.

Windows phone in comparison to iOS and Android lies far behind with 64 and 84 percent developers dedicated to these platforms, respectively. Mostly, the developers mentioned that the reason behind higher percentage of iOS and Android apps is primarily due to the huge user base. But with this substantial jump (as the survey shows) Windows will soon be able to bridge this gap.

Some of the other platforms on the rise, includes HTML5 from 33 to 43 percent and Firefox from 3 to 10 percent in 2014.

This has been really a busy year for Microsoft with its landmark deal to take over Nokia’s devices, including the merger of mobile and desktop developer accounts. Thus, it seems that Windows is all set to become the third ecosystem soon.
