Free Android Apps Outnumber Free iPhone Apps


Netherlands-based mobile analytics group Distimo released that there are more free apps for Android than the iOS, at 134,342 to 121,845. The notable things are first, when one adds free iPad-only apps, the total number of gratis iOS apps increases to more competitive 132,239. And then there is Apples sometimes rigorous vetting process, it has probably played a role in its numeric slip this report doesnt highlight things like legality, repetition, or the overall number of apps dedicated. Apple has a lot more Premium apps, giving it overall lead at 333,124 to 206,143 but between Androids rapid growth and report terms iOSs relative stagnation, Distimo expects Google to take the top spot in five months time, outnumbering iPhone and iPad apps combined a rough scenario for Cupertino to stomach, but atleast the company will still have Windows Phone to kick around a while longer.
