Late last year, the number of iPhone apps in the iTunes store was somewhere between 760,000 and a million. A dedicated employee at Gigaom figured out that if you bought all of the paid apps your final bill would total $1.13 million! That’s a lot of cash up for grabs and that’s just a small portion of the total. Add in Android and Windows apps and all of the in-app moneymakers and ads on apps. . . .
Gartner says that by 2017, mobile apps will generate revenue of more than $77 billion, making apps one of the most popular computing tools for users across the globe.
