Android Market is growing rapidly, fear that it will overtake Apple’s App Store in size by August 2011, according to research2guidance.
The company feels that Android Market will accomplish 425,000 apps by next August. In April. Recent new apps added by Android is 28,000; whereas, iOS only added 11,000.
Android Market’s high growth rate does not necessarily mean more revenues for developers.
“On the contrary, the success of an app store is negatively correlated to the success of an average developer. All analysis on the early months of an app store including the Android Market shows that average download numbers decrease dramatically after the first months or even weeks after the launch of the store. The long tail gets longer and longer while the top 5% gets richer and richer.”
At the speed the Android is moving , it would be a hard task for Apple to stay close with Android.
