Next The Mobile Revolution...Starting with the Apple App Store-3 Next

In the last five years, many leading OSs disappeared from the mobile market altogether (i.e., J2ME), while other strong OSs, such as BlackBerry, significantly slowed down. This put the focus and challenge on only two major players: Apple and Android. Throughout this change in leadership, mobile apps and mobile users continued to grow exponentially – and so did their expectations. A bug, a slow app, a confusing interface – all are reasons for an end user to ditch the app and move on to one of its many competitors.

Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone to the world on January 10th, 2007. In the five years since the initial launch, the iOS operating systems – phone and tablets – have redefined the entire world of mobile computing. In fact, Apple recently reached its 50 billionth download, while Google is behind at 48 billion. Today, mobile continues to develop rapidly and the Apple App store grows, reshapes and changes every single day.

Here are five ways that the Apple App store has influenced mobile computing over the past five years, as identified by Perfecto Mobile.
