Apple’s App Store has been overrun by ‘zombies’

Apple App Store Downloads

Apple has claimed that 90% of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch apps in the App Store are downloaded at least once a month. According to data from tracking service Adeven, however, more than two-thirds of apps in Apple’s marketplace are “barely ever installed by consumers.” The firm argues that the sheer size of the App Store has made it harder for smaller developers to get noticed, BBC News reported. It revealed that 579,001 apps out of a total of 888,856 apps in its database are “zombie apps,” or apps that go unnoticed and never appear on any of Apple’s most popular worldwide app lists. The exact number downloads for these “zombies” is unknown because Apple doesn’t reveal this information, however Adeven researchers believe the figures are “very small.”
