Analyst: Play Store and iOS App Store rapidly growing, Windows Phone fails to impress


Analyst Alex Barredo today tweeted a photo today depicting the size of the app stores on all major mobile platforms. According to the chart, Android’s Play Store has the most apps, with iOS’ App Store not too far behind it. Both are growing rapidly, and both are approaching the 1.4 billion mark.

Third on the chart are iOS iPad apps, which the analyst separates from the ‘regular’ iPhone App Store. The chart shows the iPad as having about 500,000 distinctly optimized apps.

The Windows Phone App Store comes in forth and last on the list, with less than 350,000 apps, it’s no secret Windows Phone is the underachiever here.
