App Store Stats (Aug 2011)

I’ve been looking at some App store stats the last week. Out of the 460,000 apps listed in the store, there are a bit more than a dozen priced as high as 999 bucks!

Other interesting things I found from the data are:

App submission:

The number of apps being submitted has levelled off since start of 2010.  Since then the number of app submission is roughly 20,000 apps per month. There are seasonal changes such as spikes at the end of the year and slower summer months.

App Price:

The majority of apps in the app store are free. This number comes down proportionally as their price point’s increase. More than 95% of the apps are priced under 10 dollars. The most popular price point for Games is 0.99 price marker.

I didn’t get a chance to compare these numbers against the Android market, but it would be worth doing so.

    What are the Android marketplace stats like? do theys how the same trends? I think the spike before xmas makes sense. I wonder if those app submissions have also plateaued as well?
