App Downloads set to Double by 2016

A new report from Juniper Research predicts that mobile device users will download upwards of 66 billion apps by 2016, over twice a much as what was downloaded in 2011. This is a huge opportunity for developers as Juniper says that 87 percent of the apps downloaded in 2016 will be free, with benefits of in-app purchases and subscription sales. Games are expected to still be the most popular apps downloaded, with Multimedia apps coming in second place.
