We are very proud you are using our service to discover the great apps within this huge collection, and you made us the leading website to discover Android apps. We will keep working hard on your feature requests and on making AppBrain even better in the coming year!
Now we would like to have a look back and share some interesting statistics we gathered over the year.
Most popular Android search terms in 2010
What are the most searched-for apps? The following table shows the top 10 search terms on AppBrain.com over the whole year:
Half of these search terms are for very popular Android apps. It is very interesting to see that the generic search terms are for apps which are focused on customizing the Android phone, eg live wallpaper, widget and launcher.
Also the search for battery shows that there is huge interest in knowing more about the state of the battery and in tools to extend the battery life time.
Most popular Android apps in 2010
The top 10 apps viewed on AppBrain over the last year were:
The success of Angry Birds is amazing, especially considering that “Angry Birds Seasons” just didn’t make it into the top 10 as it was placed at 11.
Most popular Android phones in 2010
The 10 most popular Android devices among all the AppBrain users in 2010 were:
It is great to see that the most popular phones are quite powerful and run Android 2.1 or higher. This allows to develop more powerful apps for the users and less extra effort for the developers to support outdated platform versions.
Hopefully there will be Gingerbread, dual core, and tablet devices in this list next year :)
We wish you a happy new year and hope that 2011 will be another great year for Android!
