But according to statistics, more applications will soon be downloaded from the App Store for iOS devices than songs from the iTunes Music Store . What’s more, if everything stays as it is (with a download rate of thirty million applications per month), that’s when March will come.
On the one hand, analysts justify the higher rate by the fact that many users advertise more the apps they buy from the App Store than the music they buy. On the one hand I agree, in social networks such as Twitter or Facebook without including the numerous blogs more applications are recommended than songs; but on the other hand the use of services such as Spotify (music via streaming) have affected the way we consume music, something I’m sure you already know at Apple. I’m sure that, as we’ve mentioned at Apple, it’s time for iTunes to make the jump to the cloud.
In conclusion, it’s logical that application downloads outnumber music downloads even more so when you consider that Apple has sold 90 million iPhones and 7 million iPads. And that each user makes an average of sixty application downloads. That’s crazy numbers.
