Welcome to my online directory, this area is great for SEO descriptions!


Chrome Web Store Growth

Recently Google posted 4 Million Users Have Downloaded At Least One Marketplace App.

Here at ChromeOSApps.org we’ve been recording Chrome Web Store data and thought it would be fun to compare these two Google outlets.

For starters, the Chrome Web Store hasn’t reached 4 million users yet. However, after about 11 days (12/20), the Web Store reported slightly over 3 million users. By the way, the Marketplace took six months to reach 4 million.

The Marketplace counts more than 200 installable apps. The Web store launched with nearly 600 apps. As of 12/21 – over 1,600 apps are available.

Top Chrome Web Store Categories

Google ‘says’ the Top Installed Categories on the App Marketplace include Project Management, CRM and Accounting and Finance. Data from the Web Store shows Utilities to be the leader of the category groups.

As for the apps themselves – the following table lists the top ten for both outlets.

Are we comparing apples to oranges when we compare the performance of the Chrome Web Store vs. Google Apps Marketplace? The answer is probably. However perspective is always welcome and sometimes difficult to keep.
