Posted May 5, 2011

According to application store analytics company, the Android Market is expected to out-grow the Apple App Store in terms of size by the end of July 2011. research2guidance, another app store research firm based in Germany, agrees with Distimo but believes that the change will happen in August. Research2guidance expects that the Android Market will hit 425,000 apps by August. In April 2011, the Android Market grew 28,000 apps and the Apple App Store grew by 11,000 apps. This does not necessarily mean that developers are making more money on the Android Market. Google has yet to release the number that they have paid out to their developers. [MobileBurn]
