Android apps are becoming more popular as the Android operating system gains ground in the mobile market. IDC expects Android to take more than 40 percent of the worldwide smartphone market in the second half of 2011. However, with Android's growing popularity comes a growing risk of malware attacks.
The mobile app market, currently still led by app trailblazer Apple, is continuing to grow at a rapid pace: according to new research from Gartner there will be nearly 46 billion mobile app downloads made this year, nearly double the 25 billion downloads in 2011. Among those downloads, free will continue to reign supreme: 89% of those downloads worldwide will cost nothing.
You may know GetJar as the largest independent, cross-platform app store, and one of the largest distributors of Android apps outside of the Android Market. With more than 2 billion downloads and some 150K+ applications, the company continues to grow.
A mixed bag of results for Android apps according to the latest App Annie Index for W2 of 2013 which showed Google Play downloads higher than iOS App store downloads by 10%. The downside is that the top iOS apps are generating 2.3 times the revenue of the top Google Play apps.

Hi, i just got my galaxy s2 recently and theres this one problem, whenever i search up apps, many of the popular apps don't appear. for example, i searched for something like "modern combat 3", the game dosen't show up,bt lots of other random apps, but it's there on the webpage of the android market.
It’s time to break out the bubbly and party favors as Google has just achieved another major milestone. As Google now has 675,000 apps and games available in the Play Store, it can now lay claim to having over a whopping 25 billion downloads. This means as the number of Android users continues to trend upwards, so too the number of downloads in the Play Store.
This question might have beed asked here before but anyway.
