The total number of mobile applications available across the top smartphone platforms in the world is now approaching the 1 million-app milestone.
This is further highlighting the rapid growth of the smartphone and tablet software market.

In the last 12 months, Apple apps grew from 338,000 to 589,148, and Android apps went from 115,000 to 319,774. Concurrently, according to mobile tracking firm Gartner, US sales of smartphones grow from 67 million in 2010 to 95 million in 2011.
In the early days of the app market, most of the apps were dedicated to games and entertainment. However, the nature of the app environment has changed quickly and dramatically – new apps are now designed to improve our lives, disseminate news, give us weather reports, and, perhaps most importantly, give us one of the best and most cost-efficient marketing tools to both new and returning customers!
