iOS Apps Rejection Rate

AppleA 30% rejection rate on iOS App submissions is a bit higher than I thought it would be. Well.. now that I’m thinking about it, maybe not.

of the 26,000 applications submitted for review each week, 30 percent are rejected for failure to meet developer guidelines. – Tim Cook (Apple CEO) – via VentureBeat MobileBeat

All of this is coming out of  Tim Cook’s response to letters from G.K. Butterfield and Henry Waxman, ranking members of a congressional subcommittee dedicated to protecting the little people from evil things – like iPhones ; )


Store Wars

App Store WarsEnjoyed the Store Wars infographic forged by WebPageFX. Facts that caught my attention incude:

  • An estimated total app store revenue of $15.1 billion in 2011, up from $5.2 billion in 2010
  • The average number of apps used on an iPhone – 48 – 35 on Android
  • Average price of Top 100 paid apps is significantly lower on the iPhone – $2.15 vs. $4.57 on Android

It’s easy to see why Apple, Android, RIM, Amazon, and others are joing the Store Wars. Dig the theme WebPageFX, thanks for putting this together.
