Mobile apps across major platforms approach one million

Mobile apps across major platforms approach one million
The total number of mobile applications is close to reaching a million across the four biggest platforms: iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry, according to a report by analytical company Mobilewalla. It doesn’t take into account Symbian applications from the Nokia Ovi Store, which would have tipped the number over a million.

Obviously, iOS and the App Store are still the dominant players with a total of the whopping 590,138 applications available. This makes up 60% of all apps across the four biggest platforms with Android only a distant runner-up with its 320,315 apps, nearly half those on iOS.

Mobile apps across major platforms approach one million
Still, the rest in the ranking are way behind Android and iOS with only a marginal 4.42% for the BlackBerry App World and 3.6% for the Windows Phone Marketplace. We all know numbers aren’t everything - ultimately, it all comes down to a connection between numbers and quality. The trend however is clear that mobile apps are growing faster since competition between app stores kicked off around 2008.

Plus, you find the same app on App Store, Android Market, BB App World, Windows and Ovi Store. So technically, they're not close.... #JustSaying and stand to be corrected
