Samsung Apps Hits 100 Million Downloads

Along with Android, Samsung has also been rolling out Bada powered smartphones regularly, since June last year. The first Bada phone, the Samsung Wave, was a huge hit, and was soon followed by the Wave 2, Wave 525, Wave 533, Wave 723 and the Wave 575.

One of the most major selling points of both Android and iOS is the number of apps and games they support. Samsung launched an SDK for Bada right at the time of launch and also launched a developer contest to entice developers into developing apps for Bada. It seems to have worked quite well, because the Samsung Apps Store just hit 100 million downloads. There are now over 13,000 apps in the Samsung application store, which is a very respectable amount. It is available on both Bada smartphones and TVs.

    100 million app downloads in 10 months sounds impressive until you realize Apple’s App Store has that many downloads *every 3 days* and accelerating.

    “The amazing story of this chart is not that apps are running at above 30 million download per day, but that the figure is growing. Growth like this is hard to get one’s mind around. Not only are downloads increasing, but the rate of increase is increasing.” Source Asymco Jan 2011

    ABI Research reports that of the 7.9 billion mobile App downloads that took place in 2010, 5.6 billion of these (71%) went to Apple iOS devices.

    It puts Samsung’s figures in perspective really.
