Apple's App Store and the Google Play store each claim to offer over 700,000 apps to choose from, but only a tiny fraction of them bring in significant revenue for their developers, according to research from analyst firm Canalys.

In fact, the company says, of the $120m in total revenue generated from paid app downloads and in-app purchases in the US during the first 20 days of November 2012, fully half was split between just 25 developers.

Does that mean 50% of all app sales is longtail split across many different kinds of apps?

Is this evidence of an unhealthy sales environment? What would be a more appropriate level of sales, 25%/10%/1% shared by the top 25 developers?
