The identification of relevant iOS Apps in "Medical" and "Fitness/Health" is still considered impossible because of their large number. Since the end of 2015, day-to-day, nova motum´s AppQualifier database has been able to determine the exact number of iOS apps and their Android counterparts in both categories at any time. On 31.01.19 at about 8:00 a.m. Berlin time, the total number of iOS Apps worldwide in the two stores DE + US was about 104,400 iOS Apps. Of these, about 8,900 were iOS apps, which are only listed in the US store.Our statistics include the growth in new apps as well as the development of apps that are no longer listed.
Examples for searches by indications:
- Depression: approx. 1,050 apps
- Diabetes: approx. 2,150 Apps
- Cardiology: approx. 950 Apps
- Cancer: approx. 2,000 apps
AppQualifier shows that almost 50% of "Medical" apps are exclusively available for iOS devices, alkso were not created for Android!
