The How App Stores Really Stack Up Infographic compares the different downloading platforms that the three major smartphones on the market use for downloading applications.
Created by BlogBerry, the chart compares Android's GooglePlay, Blackberry's App World and iPhone's App Store. Not surprisingly, the App Store provided the most apps -- 500,000 to be exact. Google Play was close on Apple's heels with 400,000, while App World features only 70,000. Despite a low variety of BlackBerry apps on the market however, the Crackberry population downloads almost 6 million a year and 13 percent of the developers are raking in the rewards to the tune of $100,000 or more.
The Android app market has more free apps than iPhone's app world, which would stand to reason then why Apple profits more from its apps than Android. 66.2 percent of iPhone users pay for their apps, which earns Apple four times more from its apps than Android.
