App Downloads From iTunes, Google, Windows & BlackBerry Up 11% in Q1 2013

App downloads from four of the major app marketplaces – Apple’s App Store, Google Play, the Windows Phone Store and BlackBerry World – were up 11% in Q1 2013 as compared to all of Q4 2012, according to market research firm Canalys’ latest App Interrogator research.

The report also revealed these four stores combined had 13.4 billion downloads, and $2.2 billion in revenue. In addition, revenues from paid-for apps, in-app purchases and subscriptions combined grew 9% in Q 2013, over the whole year 2012.

Here is more about how sales broke down globally from the press release:

Some of the strongest growth was seen in emerging markets, such as South Africa, Brazil and Indonesia, helped not least by the growing base of smart device users in those countries. But robust growth, both in revenue terms and download volumes, was seen in mature mobility markets, such as North America, up 8% and 6% respectively, and Western Europe, up 8% and 10% in Q1.

iPhone App Downloads Up 33% In October: Fiksu Report

iPhone app downloads increased by 33 percent in October, according to new metrics from Fiksu. The dramatic increase followed the release of the iPhone 5 in late September. According to Fiksu’s App Store competitive index, which looks at the average aggregate daily download volume of the top 200 free U.S. iPhone apps, average daily downloads in October reached  5.4 million. Interestingly, in October 2011, when Apple released the iPhone 4S, Fiksu saw iPhone app downloads increase by  29 percent.

According to Fiksu’s latest monthly report, which also looks at mobile app loyalty, it costs $1.06 to maintain a loyal app user, which was down seven cents or 6 percent from September’s $1.13. Fiksu’s press release explains the change: “Significant increases in organic searches and app discovery – driven by the arrival of the iPhone 5 and users’ natural enthusiasm for downloading apps on to new devices – pushed costs down and created a huge opportunity for mobile app marketers to very cost-efficiently acquire loyal users in October.”
