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...

you didnt respond to my points lol. because if you did, there wouldnt have been such a blind troll response. and to answer your question, my SGS1 which comes kinda light compared to some other phones for apps came with 48 apps. And almost all of them are things I use. except maybe 2 or 3. How many did your iphone come with?

PS right now i have about 135 apps active on my phone and another 20 or so stored in Titanium for when i need them.

That's bloat ware. You just said you don't use them.

You still can't respond to my question of which apps that are not bloat ware your phone comes with and iPhone doesn't.


You also proved my point by immediately trying to discredit this study.

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?

So if All 45 Polled said Apple was easier, but only 47% of those polled developed for both, So for all to say apple was easier, you would have to guess they all developed for iOS. That said if you are somewhere that every developer you poll is an iOS developer, probably going to get a bit of a bias answer, and on top of that 53% of them answered that apple was easier even though they don't program for android.

Remix is one of the biggest trolls on here throwing out half truths or lies that are always anti Apple. Fandroids don't care about trolls as long as they're anti Apple

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.

dont know who told you that. I get full HSPA+ in the middle of a big thick hospital that I work at. I get better service in there than VZW and Sprint. Surprising? yea.. but like anything its all about where you are located.

I had T-Mo once.. and paid the ETF because as soon as I went into a building...lost signal... their customer service si horrendous... hope they get bought .. to fix some of that...

27. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


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.
