'Hard to believe' that Apple's App Store accounts for 99.4 per cent of app revenue
ComScore has questioned this morning's Gartner research report, which claimed that Apple's App Store accounted for 99.4 per cent of all mobile app downloads in 2009.
Commenting on the Gartner numbers during a presentation at the Mobile Games Forum in London today, comScore analyst Alistair Hill said:
"I think somebody's missed something out on the maths there... I find that hard to believe. We know iPhone users buy a lot more apps than anybody else, but that [the Gartner claims] still doesn't work."
Hill also suggested that BlackBerry users "buy more games than the average person" in response to a question about RIM's platform.
Gartner says more than $4.2 billion of revenues were generated by mobile applications in 2009, with the App Store accounting for a stunning 99.4 per cent of those revenues.
