iTunes App Total Downloads Finally Overtook Song Downloads
Here are some interesting data of the app store growth rates in iTunes.
From the graph, you can see tremendous growth of app downloads. App download reached 15 billion app threshold within three years while song download reached the threshold in 6 years and 10 months.
Download rates for songs recovered a little in the last six months.
The app download rate is now at least 31 million per month while the song download rate is about 12 million per month. The App Store is now delivering at least 44 million new content downloads per month.
App download rates are volatile according to the last chart.
Although song downloads recovered unexpectedly where daily downloads went from 8m/day to about 12m/day, total app downloads are still more than song downloads.
