A few days back Google reached 10 Billion Android App downloads – The Android App market has been growing faster than its rival Apple’s Mobile App Market. It is also expected that number of Android apps will cross number of iOS apps in next couple of months.
Looking at the numbers – Android Market had 319,161 active applications as compared to 459,589 for Apple App Store by end of 3rd quarter of 2011 (Sept. end).
These 320k odd android apps have been downloaded over 10 billion times – Google shared a brief breakdown of these numbers in form of a Infographic, which give you an idea of What, When, How, where and who of Android App World.
Interesting to note is, out of Top 10 most app crazed countries, India does not figure in the list. India probably has some of the cheapest Android phones in the world and smartphone numbers are also one of the highest. Still we are not that App crazy.
