    Android users are becoming a ravenous bunch when it comes to consuming payed apps in Google's Play Store. According to analytics company App Annie, the Play Store has seen a wopping 137% growth in revenue during the first seven months of the year. This is a very good thing for developers and customers because it [gives] devs an incentive to keep developing for the platform and the customers benifit from the influx of apps. Developers follow the money and rightfully so. Android and it's developers may see some numbers close to what Apple is seeing in their App store relatively soon, and that is quite a feat despite how ones feels about the competition.

    I've been seeing a lot more high quality apps in the app store and have been purchasing them too. Some are because my daughter is 6 and there are some great educational apps too.

    I knew...I just KNEW that once the prepaid hit shelves and people saw them become readily available, the app store purchases would soar. Low and behold it did.

    This is actually great news because this only includes sales of the prepaid cards or any apps purchased for the n7 in July since both came out then I believe. Wondering what the sales increase for that month was.

    I think several discounts like we just had, help. I've bought more (even at $.25) than I did in a year. each day I'd buy at least 2-3, and previous sales too. I had gotten an app last year and got another app from the same developer this time around. Same with Where's Perry. I wanted it when it came out, but never did, and now I got it.

    I've barely bought an app that wasn't 10 cents or 25 cents....

    Only Titanium Backup honestly was bought at full price....

    Funny as one of the reasons I am staying with Droid is the few apps I have paid for are still half what I would be paying in the app store

    Many people, like myself, got a $25 store credit for buying a Nexus 7.
    The store credit expires in 9/2013, I believe. I'm buying things I normally would not have bought.
    Now all that Google Play Store credit purchases wouldn't be contributing to those sales numbers, would it? ;)
