Just an idea. I don’t think I have enough time to do this though.
Make a spreadsheet, gathering list about applications showing up in various platform’s AppStore in certain timeframe. The table should contain:
- Platform name
- Application name
- Developer name
- Category and Sub-category (Game, Multimedia, Cloud service, Clock, Note taking, etc)
- Freeware/Paid (Demo included in Paid)
- (Optional) Your subjective rating about the application concept, quality apps or not.
After the table is compiled, I think the Pivot Table would show interesting things. How often new apps are spitted out, how much quality apps, the category distribution.
