  • Android App Store Platforms
    Growing competition in Android Market urges the developers to seek for alternative app distribution channels.
    Currently these distribution channels can be classified into two categories:
    1) Aggregators which only provide app information and usually just link to the Android Market. They have no direct business relation with the app developers
    2) Independent app stores with developer submission and app promotion functions. They have a business relation with the developer submitting apps onto their stores
    There are stores which combine both roles. They display Android apps collected from the Android Market Place and allow developers to submit their apps directly to their store.
    Aggregators concentrate on tracking original Android Market content and aim to provide better app discoverability and search functions, including exclusive app reviews, recommendations, user communities and variety of other services.
    Their re-distributed apps number ranges from 67 thousands to 320 thousands. The numbers include inactive apps which have been submitted to the Android market once but are being deleted or replaced by a new version afterwards.

  • Independent app stores
    There are nearly 30 independent app stores which stores and sell Android apps. 12 of them are full-catalog stores, which also provide apps for multiple platforms. All others specialize in Android apps. Other stores concentrate only on Android tablet apps. They are not shown in the graph.
    Independent app stores try to attract developers by offering additional reach for their apps, allow advanced on-platform marketing campaigns and promotion support.
    Not all independent app stores are shown in the graph because of missing app number information.
    2 The number of apps in Android Pdassi store refers to 14th of June, 2011, whereas apps in other stores were counted on 26th of May 2011.
