That's right you read that right out of the 650,000 Apps in the Apple's App store more than 400,000 have ZERO downloads. Nota, nill, zilch, the big goose egg. Well you get the point.This is according to a report from the app analytic firm Adeven, says that the App Store has about 400,000 dead apps.
I don't know why this so stunning to me but it just is. I mean if you made an app for the app store don't you think your mom, spouse or significant other download it just once to make you feel good about yourself?
According to Christian Henschel, Adeven CEO this stat was attributed to :
Apple’s closed system — it’s tough to discover those kinds of apps. You don’t have proper search, so the only way to discover new apps is through the top listing.
I wonder what the stats are for other OS on dead apps?
