Palm Pre App Catalog exceeds one million downloads

Palm logo"On launch day, Palm sold 50k devices and their App Catalog experienced 100k downloads - that's an average of 2 apps downloaded per device and 5,500 downloads per app (with a low of 600 and a high of 20k)," wrote Bryan Barletta on the Medialets website . "18 days later and they've tripled the user base to 150k units, averaging 6+ apps downloaded per device and 33.3k downloads per app (with a low of 2.4k and a high of 114k)."

While Barletta conceded that the iTunes App Store was the "most successful app store in the mobile market today," he insisted that there really was no "common ground" for the two competing stores based on the "numerous factors involved."

"The App Store hit the 1 million download point about 17 days earlier than the App Catalog, housing more than 16x the amount of apps and was accessible by more than 26x the number of devices than the App Catalog," explained Barletta. "Looks pretty bad for the Pre, right? Well, that's until you take a look at the downloads themselves."

According to Barletta, the average Palm Pre user downloaded 26x the number of apps that iPhone users had, while the average application in the Pre Catalog experienced 16x the number of downloads compared to App Store programs.
