Android facts: 600,000 apps on Google Play, 20 billion downloaded apps
posted by Victor H. / Jun 27, 2012, 12:53 PM
Google is killing it with new announcements at its Google I/O event - the all-new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Nexus 7 tablet and Nexus Q, but while those are products that we're still to get used to, one thing that strikes us now is the amazing Android growth. Now, there are 1 million Android devices activated on a daily basis, and 600,000 app downloads on Google Play.
In just one year, daily Android activations have grown from 400k at Google I/O 2011 to 1 million this year.
This means that Google's app catalog is quickly catching up with Apple's App Store. The leading app catalog has now only 50,000 more applications, and if all continues at the same pace, Google Play could soon become the world's biggest mobile app store.
To better illustrate the store's growth, we should just remember last december when Google celebrated 10 downloaded apps. Now, in just around six months that number has doubled. Apple in contrast has recorder 30 billion app downloads since the App Store launch in 2008.
Will Google Play outgrow the App Store soon? Let us know your thoughts on the topic below.

But I think Apple has much higher QUALITY apps in the AppStore due to the app authroization process or whatever it is called.

On the other hand: Google play has a lot more FREE or cheaper apps in the store, thanks to the low fees and the more flexible authorization process. Everything has advantages and drawbacks! It just depends on ytour personal preference: either expensive but high quality apps or much cheaper ones but you may miss some. I like the second choice, as I never missed any app in the Android ecosystem.
