App Counts and Ecosystems

A German analytics firm has researched the iOS App store and found that over 400,000 apps have NEVER been downloaded and it's only 2,000 that ever make any money.

For example, there were 1,899 flashlight apps alone.

This should end the fallacy that app counts mean larger Eco systems when in reality most apps never get downloaded at all.

Until tech sites such as this one get over the fallacy, then Windows Phone will never get kudos for having an Eco system as good as iOS or Android.
