Android is the most popular mobile operating system globally and we have talked about it in one of our previous articles.

Google Play as the Google store app has a process implying much less strict guidelines for Android app developers to comply and the review process takes much less time compared to the Apple’s App Store. The positive side of this is that developers can push their apps on the Store much faster but as a consequence, they will compete with a large number of malicious Android apps too.

21.12% of apps in the Google Play Store had generated 100 to 500 downloads and only 0.1% of apps managed to accumulate more than 5M downloads.

Interesting facts and stats about Android include:

➔ Current number of Android apps on Google Play is 2,551,074.
➔ Android share of the global mobile operating system market is 87.7%.
➔ Android share of all devices connected to the internet globally is 37.93%.
