iOS Share of Mobile Web Usage Has Fallen 11%



The latest report from NetApplications shows that Apple’s mobile web share has fallen 11% in the last 12 months. The main reason for such fall is probably the mass production of cheap Android smartphones and tablets that become more and more popular in Europe and Asia. Looks like things aren’t so good for the company from Cupertino.

According to survey results released Sunday, iOS' share of Web usage hit an all-time low of 54.9% in August, down 11 percentage points (16.7%) from the 65.9% it held in August 2012. Android, meanwhile, surged to 28.1% from 21% last year, up 7.1 points (34.3%).

Anyway, there’re still some chances for Apple to get out of serious troubles. Yes, I’m now talking about the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C releases as well as about the two new iPads, which are expected to be unveiled this fall.

Plants vs Zombies 2 gets 25 million downloads



On August 16 PopCap introduced the highly awaited Plants vs Zombies sequel.  Ten days ago it reached the level of sixteen million downloads. Today it was announced that the game was downloaded twenty-five million times. It means that nearly a million copies were downloaded every day.

It is also stated that the number of Plants vs. Zombies 2 downloads is bigger that the total number of  the original Plants vs. Zombies game.

In fact the two games can hardly be compared, as he original one is a paid-app, while the sequel can be downloaded for free from AppStore. The number of Plants vs Zombies 2 downloads is certain to grow once the game is released for Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Android platforms, which is expected to happen later this year or next one.
