This article is actually a battle between some of the biggest players on the mobile phone operating system market, Android, BlackBerry OS and iOS. It’s clear that each one of them has a large number of applications, but which one of them has the most. This is the question we’ll try to answer in the following paragraphs.
Android applications are well known and very popular among smartphone users. Because Android is a free operating system, many mobile phone manufacturers have turned to it, preferring it over their own operating systems, which in the past couldn’t do a lot of things. Today a large number of Android applications can be found on the internet, especially in the Android Market, which is the official marketplace for Android apps.
On the other hand, because the iOS installed on the iPhone is the latest version, it means that this operating system can run most of the apps made for the previous version. Because iPhones were the first smartphones on the market, many people claim that the number of apps available for Apple products is higher than of the apps made for other mobile operating systems. This also happens because a lot of people do freelance iOS developing. Another thing about the apps for the iOS is that they all come from the same place. iTunes is the place to find everything related to iPhones, from upgrades to music files.
In the more recent times, the number of Android developers has increased, especially because Google encourages users to start developing for their operating system, by selling them special Dev phones which can be used by developers to test their creations. Because of this, a lot more people are focusing on developing for Android than for the iPhones.
BlackBerry applications are not as many as Android or iOS apps because BlackBerry has just lately developed the improved version of their proprietary operating system. On the other hand it’s a simple matter of logic. iPhone is the single best selling phone in the world, so it’s natural to have so many apps. Secondly, Android comes installed on almost every phone model since Google’s operating system came to life. And finally, BlackBerry phones appeal to a certain niche of customers that don’t come in great numbers, so it’s clear that they have the least applications developed for their phones.
