Apple Users Are Buying 61% More Apps

I can see Apple is becoming richer with the statistics from their press release last week.

According to the data, smartphone users are showing an increasing appetite to consume apps. Number of  of apps downloaded by average iOS owners increases 61%, that is from 51 in 2010 to 83 in 2011.

Besides, users now are also willing to buy more expensive apps. The average selling price per app increases14% .

Compared to Android, Apple has double amount of apps. While the Android market has 200,00, Apple’s App Store has more than 425,000 apps. Number of downloads in Apple is also three times more than Android’s.

Actually revenue from these apps only contributes to only about 1% of the company’s total . But without these apps, iPhone and iPads won’t be selling like hot cakes.
