Ovi Store has the highest downloads among App Stores

A new study by research2guidance compared the average downloads per app with Apple app store as the base point among the app stores.Ovi Store came first with over 2.5 times the downloads more than Apple's App Store.

From the study we can conclude the following

  • Symbian is still alive and kicking.
  • You have a better chance to get a success with a good app on Ovi Store rather than Apple App Store.
  • As Ovi Store is less saturated compared to others and Symbian still has the largest installed base developers shouldn't abandon Symbian.
  • Infact this should encourage new developers to see Symbian as a promising platform
