The Appys 2012 – Mobile/Tablet/Social/Web

The Appys 2011 saw over 250 apps entred to the competition and over 300 people attended the awesome event in Dublin’s Mansion House. This year we aim to be bigger, better and smarter.

MOBILE SMARTS
By the end of 2012 at least 50% of personal phones in Ireland will be smartphones. The European average is about 20%, suggesting Irish consumers are early adopters of smart handsets, as we were of mobile phones in general.

TABLET MOUNTAIN
Apple sold 15.4m iPads in the final quarter of 2011. 39% of the 26.8m tablets that shipped that quarter were running Google’s Android operating system. There are over 180,000 iPad apps

A TSUNAMI OF APPS
There was a time when it was important for Apple and Android to promote app development and tout the number of apps they have in store. This is no longer true. There are well over 600,000 apps for iPhone and 500,000 apps for Android. No one is counting anymore. It’s the quality of the apps that counts.

NEW TO THE APPYS 2012

Cloud apps – the web apps that are changing the way we work.

Social apps – apps developed for Facebook’s Timeline – a revolution in the way we share information
