The US produces 65% of all Android apps
A new market analysis report is out by Distimo showing that 65% of all Android app developers are based in the US, 20% in the Euro Zone (Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Spain), 12% in the UK, and only 3% in Japan. What's also interesting is the average prices, with apps from the Euro Zone costing the most with an average of $4.42, followed by UK at $3.31, US at $2.96, and then Japan at $2.28. Up next is how much different apps cost between platforms, with the most expensive being BlackBerry App World averaging $8.26, followed by Windows Marketplace at $6.99, while the Apple app store, Nokia Ovi store and Android Market were all about $3.50. Now that you know all the prices, you might be asking what the top Android apps are? The top paid Android apps were twidroid PRO, Advanced Task Manager, MyBackup Pro, Power Manager Full, Weather Widget, Taskiller Full, CoPilot Live Navigation UK+IRE, Beautiful Widgets, Pure Calendar widget, and Open Home. But what about the top FREE Android apps? Those would be T-Mobile My Account, Pandora Radio, The Weather Channel, Facebook for Android, MySpace Mobile, Backgrounds, US Yellow Pages Search, DailyHoroscope, ShopSavvy, and Barcode Scanner. How many of these do you have on your Android phone???
