Today RIM announced that their app storefront BlackBerry App World has served up more than 3 billion apps to BlackBerry users worldwide. Going live April 1st 2009 BlackBerry App World has grown it’s app library and feature set and boasts the highest revenue per app out of all of the smartphone app stores.
The milestone works out to an average of 2.5 million daily downloads, and seems to be picking up steam as App World matures. The first billion app took 786 days, the second took 210 days and the tried took 176 days. Keep in mind that these figures carry extra weight as many BlackBerry app publishers and developers are able to deliver their apps outside of the company’s global app store.
It’s nice to see that RIM is relying on natural adoption for BlackBerry App World. We’ve certainly found ourselves linking more and more to the world’s most convenient app store for BlackBerry.
