On March 24, 2011, Samsung announced that the Samsung Apps TV and mobile application store has already seen almost 100 million downloads since the launch of the service in June 2010. The milestone was reached in about 10 months and the store currently offers over 13,000 applications for Samsung’s hardware offerings. As a comparison, the Angry Birds series has achieved the 100 million mark in early March (on the 14th), even if the game is offered across several platforms (including BlackBerry, Android, iOS and others) and in many titles.
However, Samsung Apps are currently available in 120 countries, with most of the applications arriving from France. Spain and Germany are third and second, respectively. These three countries put together account for an important 40 percent of all application downloads from Samsung’s store. The first device to support Samsung Apps was Samsung’s Wave, which was released last summer.
