Apple is ready to carry out some "spring cleaning" of its App Store. It announced in an email last Thursday that it will remove apps that “no longer function as intended, don’t follow current review guidelines, or are outdated.” The following chart shows why Apple feels that step is necessary. 90 percent of all apps in the App Store are invisible or "zombies".
