App Sales Booming
The researchers forecast that apps will bring in revenues of $5.6 billion in 2012, $6.9 billion in 2013 and $8.3 billion in 2014. They note, however, that the rise of the Windows Phone Marketplace from Microsoft, helped along by Nokia's push in Windows Phones, could impact those forecasts. Currently, when it comes to making money, Apple is bringing in more than all the others combined, notes mocoNews. The company is projected to bring in $2.91 billion in gross revenues in 2011, and continue to hold on to 60% of the market by 2014.
