App Store Report March 2010 App Store Report March 2010 Document Transcript

  • App Store Report March 2010 This monthly App Store Report is provided courtesy of WIP, and is based on the entries from the WIP App Store Wiki (http://www.wipconnector.com/appstores), the leading online resource listing app stores for mo- bile developers. The WIP APP STORE WIKI keeps on growing! It now counts nearly 60 App Stores, up from 46 last month. The big announcement from MWC was the Wholesale Applications Community, an effort from about 25 opera- tors around the world (representing more than 3 billion mobile subscribers), three handset vendors and the GSMA. Also trending this month were recommendation-based stores. These often are built on top of an existing app store, and seek to make the store -- and the reviews of it apps in it -- more accessible to custom- ers. Check out the WIP Connector blog at http://www.wipconnector.com/blog for more insight and analysis of the latest app stores and trends! As of March 2010, the App Store Wiki lists 57 App Stores: Airtel App Central Handster Orange App Shop AndAppStore Android Market HouseOfPalm Palm App Catalog Androlib Idea Application Store Play Now Arena AppBrain iPhone App Store Pocket Gear AppCentral iWikiPhone PreCentral.net webOS App Gallery AppComments.com Kero Mobile Premier App Shop Appsfire LG Application Store Samsung Applications Store AppStoreHQ.com Mikandi SHOP4APPS AppUp Center Mobango SlideMe AT&T AppCenter MobiHand Storeoid Blackberry App World Mobile Market Symbian Horizon Camangi Market MobileIron Enterprise App Store VCAST Apps Storefront Cellmania Mplayit Vodafone 360 Cydia Store mstore web2go FastApp Store My Hub whiteapp Flypp Netfront Widgets Wholesale Applications Community GetJar neXva Windows Marketplace for Mobile Handango Nokia Ovi Store zanox Application Store Handmark.com Optus Application Store www.wipconnector.com March 2010
