2022 saw a sharp decline in the number of released games and apps on both the App Store and Google Play.
According to AppFigures , app developers have submitted (and stores released) just over 1.6 million mobile apps and games to the App Store and Google Play.
Approximately 1.2 million of these were Android apps and games released on Google Play, and just over 400,000 were released on the App Store.
You may be surprised by the difference in scale, but this is quite normal and has been going on for years.
Yes, and 1.6 million applications and games can also seem like an impressive number. That’s about 3 new apps every minute!
But… This is about 12% lower than in 2021.
New app releases come in waves, but so far the biggest drop was around 3% in 2019, with growth in 2020 and 2021.
However, this is not bad news. This is the maturity of the application market. If you already have an app, now is the best time to promote it.
