Android now has over 600,000 apps, installed 20 billion timesJune 27, 2012 2 Email article | Print article
Apple App Store has 650,000 apps – 225,000 specifically for the iPad – installed 30,000,000,000 times. At today’s Google I/O conference Google revealed Android now has over 600,000 apps in Google Play Store; that number includes apps and games. While Google does not specify how many of those apps are tablet-specific or how many of those apps support tablets in addition to phones, Google does mention the apps have been installed 20,000,000,000 times.
If we take an average for the 400,000,000 Android activations, that is 50 app installs per Android device. Compare that to Apple’s “365 million iOS devices in play” comment and we get roughly 82 app installs per iOS device. Interesting. Sound off in the comments below!
