As with any modern innovation, you can track the steps that brought us to where we are now.
Shoutem, an awesome start-up that helps individuals and businesses build mobile apps without any coding knowledge, took the time to make an incredible infographic that outlines the history & dynamic growth of mobile app stores.
It’s fascinating to see & interpret how competition triggers certain actions. For example, literally the day after RIM announced they will be creating a mobile app marketplace, Android launched their marketplace.
In the matter of 8 months from April 2009 to December 2009, the iOS App Store went from 1 billion to 3 billion downloads.
But enough from me. Check it out for yourself below – the growth is incredible & the numbers speak for themselves.
