The Tall Tail of the App Store or The One That Got Away
This pretty picture tells the story from the developers' perspective. The timeline is, of course, the startling part. November 2008 wasn't that long ago.
What happens next? Well the exponential growth apparent here might continue for some time. Even if developers leave the platform and apps are abandoned, the apps won't get removed from the store. But it would be interesting to track an aging of app updates. That might present an indication of whether the app population is starting to flatten out and resemble a logistic curve.
