Android Downloads Could Top iOS Downloads for the Year

Market research firm Ovum is predicting that Android users will download 8.1 billion apps this year, while iOS users will download 6 billion apps. That’s a huge increase for both platforms, as Android had 1.4 billion downloads last year and Apple had 2.7 billion.

“Consumers’ seemingly insatiable demand for mobile applications is set to continue this year, with downloads from app stores increasing around the world,” said Ovum’s Nick Dillon. “The outlook for the longer term is also positive, with consumers set to continue to use apps to add new features to their phones and to access their favorite services on the go.”
