Report: Apple has over 1 million apps in the U.S. app store
Capture app, which allows users to record a video and send it to YouTube, Facebook, Google+ and Twitter all with one click, was lauched for iOS nearly a year ago. Despite talk that the app would eventually come to Android, so far it hasn't.
Two years ago, it was easy to see why developers favored iOS. For every $1.00 spent on apps in the App Store, only 24 cents was spent at the Google Play Store. Last year, it was computed that 1 million apps had been approved for the App Store, although not all of them had been listed at that time. Now, counting the apps that are actually on the shelves of the U.S. App Store, the number is over 1 million. It is no surprise that since 2008, more than 60 billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store. And developers have received $13 billion in payouts, which is surely another reason why code jockeys seem to write first for iOS.
