According to a new report from App Annie, the mobile development industry has created more than 15,000 apps for the Apple Watch. That’s a sizable increase since June when the wearable launched with 6,352 apps available.
Apple Watch apps fit into a very broad range of categories. While the games category is growing quickly, it still accounts for a much smaller percentage of the total share of apps compared to the iPhone and iPad. The report concluded, “The Apple Watch category mix will and should show variation versus iOS apps. The wearable’s hardware constraints stand unique among Apple products.”
