Report claims that the App Store has up to a 90% market share in mobile apps

0. phoneArena 21 Nov 2011, 12:15 posted on

According to Gene Munster, since opening its doors, the Android Market has brought in only 7% of the gross revenues generated by Apple's App Store over the same time period which leads the analyst to state that the latter has a 85-90% market share in the mobile app market...

iPhone apps also have ad revenue so not sure what your point is here.

Look it's obvious that android users are mostly broke teenagers. We all know you guys hate to pay for anything. Even .99 for an app is too much for an android user.

Pirating music, apps, movies etc is what android users are all about.

lol,
what part did i discredit exactly? The part where I said
apple will still win in overall downloads

or where i said
apple will still win in over all money

hmm.. which one was wrong?? yea, reading comprehension is a good thing taco.

and ok.. 2 or 3 of 48 means that 45 were not bloatware to me. bloatware is subjective. Other android phones come with a lot more.

how many apps come on an iphone?

hmm.. the SGS3

Octocore, 1440p holographic images that pop about 5 feet off the phone.. 3nm thick.. 20 min charge for a battery that lasts 3 months with straight video. .. oh and when you play music, giant floor speakers pop out of the device. Awesome sound.
You dont even wanna know what happens when u watch porn. :)

hey, if u wanna spend your mom's money when you dont have to because their is a legal way that you can have the app, and the dev still gets paid.. thats on you.

study after study has shown that long term app revenue nets developers more over all than a 1 time up front fee. so who is really being paid? Unless your going to tell me that Rovio, the biggest mobile developer, is full of crap.

and i already explained that point.. if u dont get it, thats on you.

any carrier is like that depending on where you live.. from metro to VZW.

its all relative.

and you think that because the bigger (yet worse signal) company is buying tmobile something is going to improve? lol, 98% of their markets over lap. it might get a little better once its all ATT, but not much. your iphone will still drop calls . :)

alas, i forgot to mention that building coverage is also determined by what type of tech you use. GSM is easily blocked by a thick building compared to CDMA. GSM 3g is much faster, but CDMA travels farther per tower. ATT buying Tmo isnt going to cure the GSM in building issue in most cases.

"It's ok your buggy Nexus will be out "sometime this year" with no flash and 16gb no other option for memory."

It seems that VZW is delaying the release so that the issues can be fixed before the handsets get into users hands. As opposed to iDevices, where the issue is first denied (antenna-gate) and then free covers are provided to mitigate the issue. Who knows, Flash may be released for ICS right when the GALAXY Nexus is ready. Which contrasts with Flash being banned from iDevices.

"Try not to listen to music on it as it randomly adjusts the volume."

Kind of hard to do with a phone that hasn't been released yet. You have a stronger argument if the G-Nexus is only available with 16 Gb, but instead, you chose to focus on an issue that will be resolved.

Where in the above post is remixfa saying Android is better? He is offering his opinion which in this case is valid. It does not make this report invalid but it does point out that it may not be a 100% accurate view on app market share.

Ya dumb ass.

Remix is probably one of the most objective posters on this site. He may not always be right, but his posts are generally pretty well thought out.

If you believe otherwise you are f**kin' retarded.

Quit crying over the fact that the people on this site (whether you think they are "fandroids" or not is another thing altogether) just simply disagree with your dumb as f**k opinion.

so.. everyone has to be at everyone's throat, gallito? we cant show mutual respect to each other and give credit where credit is due?
so were we dating when i gave you credit for being right? When I said taco was right about something.. were we dating too?
or is it only dating when the other person acknowledges that you said they were right or did something well? screw politeness, right?

for some reason, i'll take my philosophy over yours. :)


hey its ok, tomorrow taco will compile a random list of things he didnt win, but says he did.. bet money this will be in the list.. lol.
