Asia Loves Android Apps, Has Most Downloads Per Capita [INFOGRAPHIC]


The Infographic of the Day series visually expresses important stories from Asia and the world of technology.

To commemorate its 10 billion apps milestone, Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) has released a great infographic which shows more details about Android’s astounding achievements. Now with over one billion app downloads every 30 days, Android’s growth shows no signs of slowing. And according to Google, Asia sits at the core of that growth.

Their graphic shows that four of the top five “app-crazed countries” [1] are in Asia: South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore. The USA comes in at number four (see below).

We’ve also seen that Android’s growth in Japan is strong as well, with higher growth trajectory than iOS when last we checked – though the iPhone 4S may have thrown those numbers for a loop.

Anyway, you can check out Google’s infographic in full below, which also touches on the top app categories, and other interesting factoids.
