How Many Apps Exist for the iPhone?

iphoneHave you ever wondered how many apps exist for a cell phone? It may seem silly to try and answer this question but there are hundreds and maybe thousands of apps to consider for certain devices.  This means you can pretty much find an app that suits any of your interests.  It can be interesting to learn about different apps and how they work.  Researchers say there are over one million apps created for devices running on iOS (operating system for iPhone and other Apple products).  Some apps are known to take up a lot of space on a cell phone, but if you understand different options you may be able to better utilize storage space you have on your device. Here is some information to know about cell phone apps.

Common Paid Apps
There is a wide selection of paid apps people download and use regularly such as Hide N Seek, Cut the Rope 2, Survival craft, and Minecraft (pocket edition) to name a few.  The App Store may list the most common apps first to help others know their most popular.  These types of apps give an idea of other options you can find when you do more research.  Some may argue free apps are used more often or are more popular than paid apps. This could be true, but keep in mind some paid apps offer more options that free options.

Common Free Apps
There is a wide variety of common free apps many are familiar with such as Facebook, Candy Crush, Skype, YouTube, and Chrome web browser to name a few.  The free apps are common since they are connected to a number of products and services people are familiar with.  You may also have apps already downloaded on your iPhone when you purchase it.  Yet, few of these options people rarely use or they decide to uninstall so they can make room for other apps.

Using Your Device to Find Apps
You may have an App Store app on your phone you can use to gain access to apps.  You could also use your internet browser to learn about potential apps; you will then be directed to the App Store where you can download the content compatible with your device.  When you use your device it is easier to review options made for your phone.  You can review the store and check options based on genre. You can compare options based on features, price, and feedback from other users.

Conducting an Internet Search
You can use your computer or go on the internet to learn more about potential apps.  There are various types of websites that mention they have an app you can download such as news, entertainment, weather, and more.  Aside from learning about apps to download you may find forums, blogs, or online groups offering tips and advice on how to get apps to work properly.  Keep in mind some apps are only compatible with certain devices.
