Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have been looking all over the internet to find the answer to this question, but I haven't succeeded yet. Is there anyone who can help me to share such information? I would love to know what is the market share by country/even by continents for the top app stores (Google Play, Amazon, AppBrain, Samsung Apps, SlideME etc.).

I would really appreciate any help!

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions which are Android-independent, such as "Does Carrier X have prepaid plans?", are off-topic. Consider taking advantage of other resources that may be appropriate for your question." – t0mm13b, Matthew Read

Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts, Martin! As already indicated, this question is not in the scope of this site (please consult our help center for details), as it falls into the category "market research". A hint, though: You might wish to consult Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? to find a better fitting place. –  Izzy Feb 26 '14 at 11:26
@LOG_TAG Meta Stack Exchange is for questions about the Stack Exchange network itself. This kind of question isn't appropriate there. Please don't recommend people ask a question on a different site unless you understand that site's scope and what is on-topic there. –  Dan Hulme Feb 26 '14 at 12:35
@Izzy I'm voting to leave this question open. We have several other market-share questions on the site and end users tend to say they find the information interesting. –  Dan Hulme Feb 26 '14 at 12:39
Just because a question is interesting doesn't make it on-topic. Still and all, I'm not sure that this question is explicitly off-topic. –  Al E. Feb 26 '14 at 12:49
That said, I don't know that anyone can really answer this question either. As far as I know, no such data about alternative markets has ever been published. I don't know that it can even be measured. At best, each of the markets could publish how many apps have been downloaded and how many unique devices have logged in. That still won't give you a share number, because I'd expect there to be significant overlap. –  Al E. Feb 26 '14 at 12:51
