Statistics and facts about mobile app usage
Mobile apps are software applications designed to run on smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. They are typically available through app stores which are operated by the owners of the mobile operating system. By 2020, mobile apps are forecast to generate around 189 billion U.S. dollars in revenues via app stores and in-app advertising. Some of the most popular operating system-native stores are Apple’s App Store, Google Play, as well as Windows Phone Store and BlackBerry App World. As of June 2016, there were 2.2 million available apps at Google Play store and two billion apps available in the Apple’s App Store, the two leading app stores in the world.

Faisal Abid – Google Developer Expert, Entrepreneur, and Engineer

I’ve been a IEEEmadC judge for the past 2 years now and it’s been a really great experience. I was very surprised at the amount of creativity there is among students. It’s hard to choose just one project which impressed me because there are so many that i love. It sounds cliche but every student who participates for IEEEmadC has the potential to change the world with their talent and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for me this year!
