The sixth yearly study for Mobile Health App Developer Economics has just been released as a free download. While this might sound like an esoteric topic the report is loaded with quality data. It is full of informative charts and surprising statistics.
Three takeaways from this years mHealth report are:
There are over 259,000 mobile health apps (mHealth apps) available for download. While the number of mHealth apps has increased by 57% in the last year the demand is shrinking.
Apple Health and Google Fit dominate as the most common APIs being used in mHealth apps.
There may be money in mHealth apps, but most companies have not figured out how to make it. 79% of mHealth publishers have made less than $100,000 across all of their mHealth offerings.
