It seems that the number of Android Apps being downloaded is exponentially growing alongside the incredible growth of 500,000 Android activations per month. A statement from Google’s mobile advertising sales director for Europe, Ian Carrington, indicates that the number of Android Apps downloaded total so far is now up to 4.5 Billion. To put some perspective on that figure, after the first two years of Android being in the marketplace, the number of app downloads had grown to 1 Billion, and within the last sixty days Android had that many downloads! Here's the quote from Mr. Carrington,
"A year ago [Android App downloads] was one billion, and that first billion took two years to happen. The last billion took 60 days."
Talk about some accelerated growth! Android fans sure do love our apps, don't we?
