Apple Apps Revenue Surpass Android
Android was earlier widely thought to have a trend to globally dominate the Smartphone market considering the units sold and apps downloaded. Just in late October 2011, ABI Research released a study, which showed that Android app downloads has overtaken those of iOS.
Google’s Android platform is widely used by smart phone manufacturers, and the Android-based smart phones appear to slightly outnumber that of iPhones. However, the fact is that it is more difficult to make money on Android than on Apple iOS. Let us have a look at the comparison of the apps that charge for a download between on Android and iOS. According to the statistics from Distimo, Apple’s App Store has 211,369 paid apps while Android Market has just 71,801.
Below are other statics for you to understand better.
-Downloads for the paid applications for Android are strikingly lower than they are for free apps. The percentage of all free Android applications that have been downloaded less than 100 times is 24.8%, and the percentage of paid apps that have been downloaded less than 100 times worldwide is 79.3%.
-The top 10 free and top 10 paid applications together have seen only 26 applications in the Google Android Market, while there have been 94 applications in the top 10 free and paid in the Apple App Store for iPhone.
While Apple app store now no longer focused on the growth numbers, but more on app quality as the company’s app guidelines states that if you’re submitting junk apps, your app may not get accepted for the iOS device iPhone, iPad, iPod etc. Thereby, the safe and reliable apps developed by Digiarty and other well-known app developers are approved to serve the iOS device users.
