9 3 0

Internet consumers are paying for apps more than ever before.

In the first quarter of 2019, global consumer spending on iOS and Google Play surpassed $22 billion — the most lucrative quarter ever. This is a 20 percent growth over last year, according to app analytics provider App Annie.

Not only that, overall app downloads, too, hit a record high of 30 billion during this quarter, up by 10 percent year-on-year.

Individually, too, both app stores recorded their best quarter. Spends on iOS increased by 20 percent to cross $14 billion, while that on Google Play neared $8 billion, a 25 percent growth.

'Entertainment' and 'Games' continued to be the largest contributing categories to app store revenues.
