In mid December our good friends at Quixey published a very interesting infographic on the app ecosystem. We first met Quixey at TechCrunch Disrupt in New York.
Quixey is an app search engine that searches for apps in a more natural way. Type in an app by name you’ll find it. Type in an app by what you want it to do, and you’ll find it. Quixey is backed by Eric Schmidts venture fund as well as others. They also offer social media components in their intuitive app search.
With a focus on the app ecosystem and economy, Quixey was able to release some very informative data on apps.
Their infographic shows that they found that most app developers still have just one published app.
At the time of publication Apple owned 54.7% of the U.S. mobile app market.
16% of mobile apps are over $3.00
Of the 40 most buzzed about apps 60% of them have Lite or Free in the title. The top three were Angry Birds (of course), Assassin’s Creed, and Oregon Trail Free. Also according to their data developers will develop a title for iPhone before Android.
