Have you ever wondered if the - now commonplace nomenclature - of « app » was a derivative of « Apple »? With the revolutionary concept of iTunes and its accompanying iPods, iPads, and iPhones, App and Apple have certainly been synonymous. As the popularity of Apple products, devices, accessories, and everything in between continues to grow globally, it is no surprise that the company has announced a few landmark numbers to its adoring public.
Apparently Apple has been ramping up its AppStore, in a mere six times there has been an increase of apps... from 425,000 in July to 500,000 this week. More impressive is the number of those apps that have been downloaded. Since 2008, iOS users have downloaded over 18 billion apps. The 15 billion marker was hit in July, which indicates that the Apple momentum just keeps building up steam. At this rate, they are tracking to surpass 1 billion apps downloaded per month. The popularity of accessories has been soaring likewise; discover the latest innovative protective solutions and premium electronic accessories from the industry's most leading brands.
In the words of the company itself, “Apple revolutionized the app industry with the App Store, which now has more than 500,000 apps and where customers have downloaded more than 18 billion apps and continue to download more than 1 billion apps per month.”
Although less inspired , but not to be left behind, the Google Android Market now has 319,000 apps. This month the conglomerate also announced that they passed the 10 billion app download milestone. The expectation is that this competing purveyor of multi-tasking inducing apps will also average a rate of one billion app downloads per month. This does have the potential to grow more exponentially than Apple because of Google Android’s greater distribution to smartphone device manufacturers and in turn being open to more markets with a greater choice of unlocked phones.
