Reassessing the financial opportunities for app developers

Once upon a time there was only one mobile eco-system worth developing apps for: iOS.  Why?  Because that was where the money was.  It was generally accepted that the only place that people would pay for apps was the Apple App Store.

Not any more.  A recent article in the Financial Times (free subscription required) suggests that, whilst the revenue generated from the top 200 apps on the Apple App store has risen from $15 million per month to $18 million, the Google Play store has seen an astonishing growth from $3.5 million to $12 million.  And this does not include regions where the Google Play store is unavailable and where third party app stores might bolster this number even more.

Protecting Android users from malicious apps

A news story on Mobile Entertainment today has revealed that 99 per cent of mobile malware attacks are aimed at the Android platform. It’s no surprise to see Google’s open source OS an easier target for malware violations but what is also surprising is the lack of concern from Android users: 40 per cent of smartphone and 42 percent of tablets users fail to take action to prevent attacks, according to research from Kaspersky Lab.

Mobile malware comes in many guises including malicious apps waiting for unsuspecting users to download them. And this strain of malware is growing at a rapid rate: last year, Kaspersky Lab discovered 35,000 malicious apps; in the first half of 2013 47,000 have already been detected.

Why 100,000 Apps Isn’t Enough For Windows Phone

Windows Phone: Nothing to see here

Apps come in so many shapes and sizes that it’s really hard to actually imagine how many of them exist. When you hear that Google Play has over a million apps and iOS just under the same mark, it’s such a big number that you can feel blase about what that means in terms of what’s on offer. That is, until, you get your hands on your first Windows Phone device.

The OS remains, despite strong support from Microsoft and Nokia, weakly stocked when it comes to apps. Even though it has hit the 160,000 app mark, a number of products that would be staggering if all were stacked up in a bookshop say, there remain some glaring weak spots in the App Store which really holds the whole system back.
