According to a recent report regarding app market purchases, Android is set to become the most popular app platform in the world within the next few months. Driven by new devices from Samsung, Google's app store, called Play, has surged ahead, despite a continued lack of top-end applications and consumers who still spend lower amounts. There are now 900million Android devices in the market compared to 600 million Apple products.
Although Apple recently celebrated 50 billion app downloads, users of Google's Android platform are currently downloading 500 million more apps per month.
Apple says that more than 850,000 titles are available at its App Store, while Google recently said that 48 billion apps in total had been downloaded from Play. Approximately 2billion iOS apps are downloaded each months, compared with 2.5billion from Play.
Continuing at current rates, Google is expected to be in the lead by October. Great news for Android lovers :)
