Distimo Mobile App Store Stats and Trends

Below is a really interesting presentation that was shown at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona by a mobile analytics/trends company called Distimo.

The data shows Apple winning by a mile for mobile app store size with Android coming in second and Nokia Ovi third. Android has however seen the fastest between December 2009 and January 2010 and has the most free apps (Android 57%, Apple 25%) .

In terms of what is being downloaded, Games wins hands-down. In the report Distimo state that 58% of all apps downloaded from the stores are games. The most popular categories being: Action (22%), Arcade(9%) and Adventure (9%).

Distimo also cover the fact that the most expensive apps are not necessarily the highest grossing – at the time of writing this DoodleJump (59p or 99 cents ) is the highest grossing app on apple app store. If you’ve played it, you’ll know why…
