Report: Android Apps Downloads Surpass Apple's In Q2 2011 [businessinsider.com]
According to fresh data from ABI Research, more Android apps were downloaded in Q2 2011 than iOS apps.
Makes sense since Android is a bigger platform, but we think this is a first for the rival mobile platforms.
The good news for Apple: It still gets more downloads per user than Android.
And, ABI says, "Apple’s superior monetization policies attracted good developers within its ranks, thus creating a better catalog of apps and customer experience."
