Android users finally began to buy applications

The theory that users of smartphones on Android do not buy applications is incorrect, they say the results of a new poll, during which it turned out that 93% of device owners are buying applications.

A new study conducted by the developer of the keyboard application for Android Swiftkey showed that over the year the number of users who have more than 20 paid applications doubled.



As you can see from the graph, the number of buying applications on iOS and Android is no longer different, but quite comparable - 26% and 19%, respectively. The number of users who never pay for applications is almost equal - 6% and 7%.

In total, more than 17,000 users took part in the survey.

Did Google Play finally grow or did the quality of Android applications increase so much that people finally consider it not shameful to pay for them? Most likely, both of these factors have developed here. One way or another, Android is no longer a platform for never paying users, but a commercially successful ecosystem.
