According to the report on The Verge, a Blackberry App World account for a total of six million daily downloads – totalling 174 million per month. Alec Saunders, RIM’s VP for Developer Relations during the Blackberry DevCon Europe revealed the numbers.
He took issue with the suggestion, “BlackBerry users aren’t using apps, telling that there are now over six million daily downloads from the BB App World, totalling 174m per month, for an overall tally of over two billion.”
Saunders disagreed with was the idea that BlackBerry app development isn’t profitable, citing data that suggest the App World generates 43 percent more daily downloads per app than Apple’s App Store and has more paid downloads than Google‘s Android Market.
Those points somehow believes to be undeniable facts as the App World generates 40 percent more revenue for developers, with the result being that RIM‘s app platform is the second most profitable behind iOS.
