musiXmatch Launches Android Version Of Lyrics Finder, Hits 3m Downloads – TechCrunch

Can Starmatic And Glopho Bring Anything New To The Photo Apps Table? – TechCrunch

According to some estimates (such as from XyoLogic) around 0.1% of iOS apps get 50% of the the downloads on the app store (there are 650,000+ iOS apps), with as much as 60% of iOS apps never downloaded, and only about 30-50% of apps on Android getting any traction at all. With that in mind you can understand how desperate some app-based startups are. So it's a mystery to me that people are producing some apps that offer little in the way of new innovation to even mark them out from the crowd. Into this are
