The first billion was reached in 786 days. The second was reached after 210 and more in just 176 days, and then the figure has reached three billion. These are the numbers that measure the distribution of the app for BlackBerry Smartphone. An average of more than 2.5 million apps downloaded per day. Not to mention the BlackBerry app store downloaded from third parties, those placed internally to companies around the world or those taken directly from the web.
The App World has reached the 90,000 apps currently available for purchase, also included themes and wallpaper, productivity apps, games and the like. The company prefers to stick to a more concrete “available to purchase” as given, unlike other platforms that relate to their products “presented” or “approved”.
Certainly the numbers seem small when compared to those of the app store from Apple, which has surpassed the 25 billion downloads, or Google the store Play. However, these figures are a ray of sun through storm clouds that cover the RIM recently and are considered the major company in the world of the late arrival of the app. They also represent an index of the proper functioning of the ecosystem of developers that Canadian society has built around its products.
In short, if the rapid growth of the diffusion of his app will continue to happen at this rate, is certainly an important aid for the RIM can finally breathe a sigh of relief upon arrival of the next season of Blackberry products, scheduled for early next year.
