  2. 2. Distimo Report May 2010 United States REPORT To analyze the popularity of the most popular applications over time, the average number of days that an application has been ranked in the Top 100 for the Top Overall, Games, Business and Entertainment categories is displayed above, with the provision that the application has been in the Top 100 for that category during the period November 2009 - April 2010 for at least one day. Paid applications in the Top Overall, Games, Business and Entertainment categories stay in these categories for 27, 39, 59 and 38 days on average, respectively. One might expect that free applications stay in the Top 100 for a longer period of time due to there being approximately three times less free than paid applications in the Apple App Store, which might result in less competition among free applications. This is true for applications in the Entertainment category: paid applications stay in this category for 38 days on average, while free applications stay in this category for 43 days on average. It is different for the Top Overall, Games and Entertainment categories however, where paid applications actually stay in the Top 100 for a shorter period of time. The difference between the Games and Entertainment categories is also especially interesting: while the percentage of free applications is around 30% for both categories, free applications stay in the Entertainment Top 100 for a longer time than paid applications, while that is not the case for Games. Please note that results may be influenced by different application counts in each category (April 2010): Games (35k, 32% free), Business (4.9k, 58% free), Entertainment (23k, 30% free).
