According to a report by Ovum, the total number of mobile apps downloaded across all platforms this year will hit 18 billion.
To put this figure into perspective last year’s figure was 7.4 billion so that’s a huge increase. It is forecast that from this total, some 8.1 billion will be for Android handsets, whilst downloads on Apple smartphones will provide approximately 6 billion.
Last week we reported that Android now has 47.8% of the UK Smartphone Market and this latest report enhances that fact.
One reason for the increase in Android sales is the return of Motorola who have some fantastic Android devices. If you haven't already done so check out the New Motorola Atrix by clicking here
