    App Store Not Named iTunes Heads To a Billion Downloads
    By KEVIN C. TOFEL of GigaOm, July 29, 2010

    App Store Not Named iTunes Heads To a Billion Downloads - NYTimes.com

    Today, GetJar, a San Mateo, Calif.-based company, announced it is delivering over 3 million downloads a day to more than 2,000 different phone models. Adding support for Google Android devices last year has helped boost the daily downloads, as Android is already the second-most-used platform for GetJar customers. The company says it has seen tremendous growth over the past year, with downloads up 300 percent from the prior year.

    GetJar bills itself as the “second largest app store,” boasting over 73,000 software titles. With roughly 225,000 apps, Apple’s iTunes App Store is the largest. But Apple’s store only supports a single platform in iOS4 devices, so GetJar goes after the remaining market, which is magnitudes larger. GetJar is a centralized software store for Android, BlackBerry, Symbian, Windows Mobile and Java devices. With such a wide variety of supported platforms, the company is on pace to deliver 1.1 billion mobile applications over the next year.

    GetJar’s app store is intelligent enough to determine what device a handset owner has, and only shows applications compatible with that device. And as a central repository, GetJar gains useful metrics and data on what consumers are downloading, which in turn can help developers. Today, for example, the company says that customers in India are downloading more productivity apps than consumers in Europe or North America. Armed with that type of information and support for multiple platforms, developers can target different types of software in regions where consumers are likely to buy it and thus earn per-download revenues.

    GetJar Hits Three Million Downloads Per Day

    GetJar Hits Three Million Downloads Per Day | Business Wire

    SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GetJar (GetJar - Appsolutely Everything for Nokia, BlackBerry, Android, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, LG, Palm.), the world’s second largest mobile app store, announced today that it has reached three million downloads per day, outpacing like-competitors in the mobile app market. GetJar is second only to Apple iTunes, with over 1 billion downloads to date, and is available across all mobile platforms including Android, Blackberry, Java, iPhone, Symbian and Windows Mobile.

    GetJar conducted a review of more than 70,000 apps within its store to identify user interests and trends among its millions of users. As of July 2010, YouTube, Facebook and Yahoo! Mobile remained among the top, with games “Warships Sea on Fire” and “Racing Mania” top among its category. Other leading categories include lifestyle, entertainment, music, maps, search, financial, sports and productivity downloads.

    “We’re thrilled to have reached three million downloads per day, which allows us to tap into consumers’ perceptions and attitudes, and what is trending across the U.S. and the rest of the world,” said Ilja Laurs, GetJar founder and CEO. “We’ve seen our daily downloads grow more than 300 percent year-on-year with significant growth coming from North America, Western Europe, Asia and South Africa. As consumers move from ‘browsing and searching’ to ‘downloading and tapping’, we are seeing that apps are becoming a mainstream way for people to consume content not only in the developed markets on smartphones but all over the world on all different types of handsets.”

    With downloads coming from more than 200 countries and 2000 different handsets, GetJar is also uniquely placed to see shifts in demographic trends in consumption by region, platform and handset and content type.

    “Clear patterns are starting to emerge,” said the company’s CMO, Patrick Mork. “We see Indian consumers downloading more productivity applications that enhance the usage of their phone compared to Americans for example and English consumers downloading more entertainment apps then Indians. Religious apps are popular in the Middle East. Downloads by platform are also shifting quickly. Android wasn’t even a part of our business last year. Today, it’s the 2nd most popular platform developers are submitting on when uploading content to GetJar and we have at least 3 devices in our top 20 list of devices in the US that are Android powered.”
