This is a interesting question, because number of Apps in Google Play Store may vary every day. For this moment we have in our database a number of 1.7 million apps. For more details about this database you can go here.
From the very beginning, one of the core services TheWebMiner provided was aggregated data and insight into the mobile app landscape. We managed to offer our clients custom aggregated data for all major mobile app marketplaces (iOS AppStore, Google Play, Amazon AppStore etc.) as well as primary analysis on the extracted data.
This year was a great year for setting new trends and directions of development for the it market. Now, with the year having almost ended I think that it is only fair to have a retrospective look over the things that counted and influenced our decisions this year.
I will start this series of articles with the recent published its top best apps of 2014 and describe the best apps from every category as published by apple. Before starting it is to appreciate the fact that this year selected apps are mostly focused on wellness and health which can only be the next app trend.
This year App Of The Year trophy was claimed by Elevate a simple but intuitive app meant to develop one’s cognitive ability by series of daily exercises. The App is also adaptive so it challenges your brain according to previsions results. Its Runner-up was Instagram’s very own app Hyperlapse.
Also, for the best game, Apple chose a self development one giving the first place to Threes!, closely followed by Leo’s Fortune a physics-based puzzle game.
A number of various apps followed these most important ones into the rank but i won’t bother you with details. What we have to learn from here is how the trend is to promote self development apps whether they are games or not or even paid or not.
In the end I would like to remember you that the entire database for App Store and Google Play can be found updated to day on TheWebMiner along with description, price and other significant indicators. To contact us, please follow this link.
