Crabs, football and smart phone apps. That’s what Maryland does.
According to a new study, Maryland ranks number 15 among all U.S. states in “app intensity,” the ratio of jobs developing iOS and Android apps to the total number of jobs in state, something that produces $436 million in revenue annually.

The study, released by CTIA-The Wireless Association and the Application Developers Alliance, counted 8,400 jobs in app development in Maryland, a state recognized as being a “burgeoning tech sector.”
According to a press release announcing the study, research conducted by South Mountain Economics to complete this new study “builds on a February 2012 study completed by South Mountain Economics that measured the total number of app jobs nationwide. Delving deeper with this study, researchers examined help wanted ads across the U.S. to measure the number of app jobs in each state, the states’ ‘app intensity’ and the economic impact of the apps industry.”
