By the end of last year, mobile apps were a $10 billion market. That's pretty impressive, but it could blossom to more than $30 billion by 2015.
Juniper Research predicts that the still-growing market of mobile apps, spurred by the iPhone and Android, will not stop exploding for at least the next 5 years, in which time it will actually triple in value.

Juniper considers the market to include revenue from advertising in free apps, what it calls "freemium" apps, as well as money paid for apps and ongoing mobile subscription prices.

There are tens of thousands of apps available across Apple's App Store, Google's Android Market, Nokia's Ovi platform, the Samsung Apps store, and Verizon's V Cast, among others. No one is predicting anything other than continued growth in a huge, huge way.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
