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.

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.
