1567% Growth Rate Gut Check on Michelle MacPhearson http://www.michellemacphearson.com/1567-growth-rate-gut-check/
Check out this statistic from Nielsen:
In 2009, there were 300 million app downloads!
In 2010 there were 5 BILLION app downloads.
That’s a 1567% rate of growth!
(Little tip here… Apple is also responsible for 99.4% of those downloads. That means the Apple App Store.)
But it’s probably just a fad, eh?
Not according to research form Gartner, who forecasts app downloads to top 17.7 BILLION in 2011, with $15.1 billion in revenue from those app downloads.
