Number of apps available in leading app stores Q3 2022
Average app priceApplications generate revenue in several different ways, such as charging users a price for the download of an app, charging for access to premium features of an otherwise free app or simply selling ad space. As of November 2021, the average price of an app in the App Store amounts to 0.88 U.S. dollars per app.
Google Play may have the bigger number of apps available for download, but the Apple App Store is doing a better job at monetizing its mobile content. In the third quarter of 2021, global consumer spending on mobile apps via the Apple App Store amounted to 21.5 billion U.S. dollars, absolutely crushing the still impressive 12.1 billion U.S. dollars of the Google Play platform.
