Apple’s App Store Processes 59% Of All Mobile App Downloads
A new report issued by Research2Guidance shows that Apple dominates among other mobile application stores in terms of application downloads. In first quarter of 2011 59% of all applications were downloaded from the Apple’s App Store. Though the numbers are quiet large, they demonstrate a fall in 22% comparing with 81% then the App Store first opened. During the report 58 application stores were surveyed. Noteworthy, there were only 18 application stores when the iPhone App Store launched in July of 2008. The Android Market is the strongest competitor to the App Store that led to 24% fall of the App Store’s share of application downloads. Though, resent numbers show 2% increase of App Store’s share. Moreover, users, who already spent significant amounts of money on apps, unlikely want to switch to other mobile platform.
