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.
