Around 2.5 billion Android applications are downloaded from Google’s Play Store every month and that, according to one analyst, puts Android way out in front of Apple’s iOS platform for the first time. 

Downloads from Apple’s App Store are pegged at around 2 billion a month and the iPhone-maker recently claimed its 50 billionth download. Android is closing the gap quickly, however, with a confirmed 48 billion downloads thus far and will surpass Apple’s impressive total downloads inside the next few months on account of its higher monthly download rate, reports suggest.

Speaking to the Financial Times, Horace Dediu of Asymco said, ‘The [download] rate for [Google] Play is higher so I would imagine it will have a higher total in a few months if not sooner.’ 

‘The sheer weight of Android units will generate more downloads but on a per device basis the iOS devices do seem to consume more apps and the gap is not narrowing,’ he added.

‘Not only is Android set to be crowned the most popular mobile operating system for apps, Google is also starting to make more money from Android apps,’ reports The Inquirer. 

Google Play's share of daily revenues has increased from 19 percent in November to 27 percent in April, according to analytics firm Distimo.

Apple is expected to unveil the new-look iOS 7 at the company’s WWDC 2013 developer conference next week.
