Would you be surprised to hear that more than 60% of the apps in the App Store have never been downloaded, even once? That's the conclusion of analytical firm Adeven. The latter even counted the number of flashlight apps and found that Apple iPhone users in need of a quick light have 1,899 choices. Christian Henschel, Adeven CEO, said that there are only a "couple of thousand apps" that get downloaded in number from Apple's on-line applications store.
Just goes to show how inflated the claims about how important each platforms respective App store is. Truth is, all major platforms could easily accommodate the majority of users as most of the "big guns" are covered, even on Windows Phone. The only litmus test for such a large number of apps is perception where people equate numbers with quality.
