The Mobile App Jungle [Infographic]

Knicket -- a Filter and Tag-Based App Search Engine That Enables Users to Discover the Best Apps for Their Smartphones and iPads Easier and Faster -- Releases an Infographic With the Latest Mobile App Numbers and Statistics

BERLIN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/22/14 -- The Founders of app-discovery search engine Knicket, Uwe Flade, Martin Konradi and Thomas Jung, recently released an infographic that discusses the facts and figures of the mobile app world. These statistics supplement Knicket, which helps people find high quality apps in a simpler way than the official app stores.

With 1,230,168 apps in the Apple App Store and 1,299,573 apps in Google Play -- 25% of which are games -- it can be difficult to find the right application for your smartphone or iPad, especially with 40,000 apps being released every month. By 2017, it is expected that there will be more than 200 billion app downloads per year and 94.5% of all mobile apps will be free. This is significant as the average person spends 127 minutes in mobile apps per day.

One interesting point is that 23% of sports apps, 22% of games apps, 21% of photography apps, and 11% of social networking apps are only used once. In total, 20% of all mobile apps are downloaded once and never used again.

As far as cost, 62% of iOS and 69% of Android apps are free. Additionally, 38% of iOS and 31% of Android apps are paid. For iOS, 20,000 apps cost more than $6.99, while $1.47 is the average cost, and 32% are in-app purchase. In fact, 76% of Apple's App Store revenue was from in-app purchases in 2013. For Android, 10,000 apps cost more than $6.99, while $3.74 is the average cost, and 42% are in-app purchase.

The top ten popular app categories are games, education, business, lifestyle, entertainment, utilities, books, travel, music, and sports.

The competition on the app stores is incredible. There are 5,257 iPhone Apps and 5,200 Android Apps just to help people with their daily workout. The consequence is that only a few developers earn well. While Clash of Clans makes $1,221,606 a day, an average developer publishing apps on Microsoft´s mobile platform earns only an average of $625 per app and in total $2,222 for himself. Coding for Android (Google) makes $1,125 per app and $6,000 per developer, while producing for Apple´s ecosystem generates an average of $4,000 per app and $21,276 per developer.

Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently. One of the typical use-case is remote camera monitoring. With WebRTC, people can have interoperability and flexibility for deploying monitoring service. However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
