Source: https://intelligence.businessinsider.com/welcome

Apple released the latest iteration of its mobile platform, iOS 6, on Wednesday and it looks like it has already made a huge dent in the platform’s software distribution. According to ChartBoost, 15 percent of iOS users upgraded to iOS 6 in the first 24 hours it was available.

Compare this to Android, where more than half of its users are still on Gingerbread, released in late 2010. Jelly Bean, released two months ago, only accounts for 1.2 percent of Android devices.

How People Find Apps

Search is the top app discovery tool. According to Nielsen, 63 percent of Android and iOS users have utilized search to discover new apps in their respective app stores.

While most developers focus on cracking the top 25, search is becoming an increasingly important tool in the “long tail” of mobile apps. App revenue is no longer as concentrated with the proliferation of apps, which helps explain why Apple is buying a company like Chomp to revamp search in the App Store.

Mobile App Revenue Has A Long Tail

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-mobile-app-revenue-has-a-long-tail-2012-8

This chart comes from Business Insider Intelligence, a new research and and analysis service focused on the mobile and Internet industries. Sign up for a free trial here.

Mobile apps are not a “sink or swim” proposition.

According to Flurry, the revenue share from apps outside of the top 100 ranked titles on iOS and Android will increase from 45% in 2010 to an expected 68% this year.

Note that this only includes premium and in-app revenue, which Flurry expects to account for 77% of mobile app revenue this year (although ad revenue is the fastest growing category).

The changing revenue distribution of mobile apps reflects the proliferation of the app economy in the past two years, but also a repudiation of the idea that you need to be in the top 25 of the app store to make any money.

Microsoft’s Windows Division Generated Less Revenue Than Its Servers Division (MSFT)

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-microsoft-revenue-by-segement-2012-7

Here’s an incredible chart from Microsoft’s last earnings report that didn’t get the sort of attention it deserves. The Server and Tools division generated more revenue than the Windows division in the last fiscal year.

The Windows division is still much more profitable, earning $11.5 billion compared versus $7.4 billion for Servers & Tools. And one of the reasons Windows generated less revenue than Server & Tools is that Windows 7 is at the end of its run.

However, this chart is illustrative of a two big trends for Microsoft. First, while Vanity Fair wants to call it a lost decade for Microsoft, it clearly wasn’t all lost since it built a third huge new business division. Second, while people worry about the future of Windows, and whether or not it gets disrupted by iOS and Android, the truth of the matter is that Microsoft is more than just Windows.

Hangouts come to Gmail, let you launch virtual meetings from your inbox

Google’s been adding a lot of features lately to get us to Hangout, from providing digital moustaches to scheduling virtual soirees. Now, the company’s aiming to get folks video conferencing from their inbox. That’s right, you can now start a Hangout with up to nine friends or colleagues straight from Gmail with a click of a button. Users can expect better quality as compared to Gmail’s old peer-to-peer video chats, and it provides access to people with an Android or iOS device and those on Google+ in a web browser. The new feature has already started making its way to users, and the rollout will continue over the next few weeks. Still not ready to mix your Hangouts with email just yet? Perhaps the pair of videos after the break will persuade you.

Facebook Already Killed Its New 'Find Friends Nearby' Feature That Found People Around YouFacebook was stealth testing a new ‘Find Friends Nearby’ feature over the weekend that would show the Facebook users who were around you—think Find My Friends on iOS or Where You At? on Boost Mobile—but has now pulled the feature completely.

The service was admittedly half-baked, there was no official announcement about the Find Friends Nearby and when we tried playing around with it on our phones, we found nobody near us. Facebook told Wired that Find Friends Nearby wasn’t actually intended to launch. Specifically Facebook said:

“This wasn’t a formal release—this was just something that a few engineers were testing. With all tests, some get released as full products, others don’t. Nothing more to say on this for now, but we’ll communicate to everyone when there is something to say.”

Looks like we’ll have to wait a little bit longer to creep on Facebook users in our vicinity. [Wired]

The Overwhelming Android Sprawl, VisualizedYou’ve probably read about Android market fragmentation and wondered just how big a deal it is. This visualization spells out the problem tangentially: there are almost 4,000 unique Android devices out there running a single app available on Play. And only a very few of them run the most recent version.

The image was put together by Open Signal Maps to visualize the distribution of devices using their app. It includes data from 681,900 users, and breaks them down into almost 4,000 devices. Admittedly, that number is artificially high, because custom ROMs report identities differently.

But, the point here is that developing for Android is no longer as straightforward as it once was. With so many devices and an ever-expanding catalog of operating systems to cater for, it’s hardly surprising that Android support is shaky at best. By contrast, a similar image for an iOS app would only feature a handful of devices.

Oh, and if you were wondering, yes, that big green block occupying a ten percent share is the Samsung Galaxy S II. [Open Signal Maps via The Verge]
