Mobile app downloads to almost top 100 billion by 2015 According to new figures by Berg Insight, mobile app downloads will reach 98 billion by 2015.
The number will compound at a rate of 56.6 percent from 2010 to 2015.

Revenue from app stores like the Android Market and iOS App Store will jump to $11.8 billion by 2015, as well.

In 2010, that revenue (paid apps, in-app upgrades, subs) grew exponentially to $2.15 billion.

Into the future, Apple will remain the the largest "direct monetizing force behind of mobile applications," with Android in second and Windows Phone in third.

The report also notes that HTML5 "apps" will eventually rule, but until 2015, downloadable apps, based on Flash, Java and other libraries will continue to grow.
