The mobile app market has witnessed significant growth in recent years as smart phones become more affordable to a greater number of people. By 2015, independent research company In-stat believes that there will have been 48 billion app downloads across the world. That means there will have been more app downloads than there are people.
Angry Birds has so far been the most popular download, with there having been an estimated 100 billion birds flung since the game was launched back in 2009. Apple devices account for 65% of the total number of downloads thus far, with android devices accounting for just 20%.
All of this data and more has been presented by MoneySupermarket.com in their ‘Planet of the Apps’ infographic:
