Apps are expected to generate $25 billion this year – up 62% from a year ago. They are expected to double 2013’s numbers by 2015, when over $50 billion in revenue will have been generated.
There are 1.4 million apps available between Google and Apple, but 64% of them are free. The app sales, which average $3.18 per app bought for iphones, will exceed the entire book market by this time next year.
Windows only has 125,000 apps and Amazon has a paltry 70,000, so if either one builds on its app business, we may see an even bigger expansion of an already exploding sector.
