Cellphone App Sales On The Rise

March 17, 2010

US (Chattahbox) – A new study in consumer and technology trends has found that the sale of cell and smartphone applications are no a steep rise.

According the study done by Getjar, gross earnings from the sale of applications for various phones is set to hit $17.5 billion in just two short years.

This is after a projection of an incredible 92% year-by-year increase that has since been proven an underestimate.

Getjar also found that the iPhone would be unlikely to remain on top.

With more cell manufacturers bumping their capabilities, you can now get cells that run some smartphone third-party software, with increasing upgrades sure to come as competition in the market closes in.

“We wanted to find out the real value of the industry because we felt certain segments like the iPhone were being over-hyped and so-called feature phones were being under-hyped,” Getjar founder, Ilja Laurs, explained.

There are now 48 app stores available for the purchase and download of various programs, ranging from the helpful to the pointless.
