This is a single insight from This Week in Apps - Shopping Showdown?. Check out the full article for more insights.


Earlier in the week, I polled my Twitter followers to see if they could guess how many apps turn 10 this year. For the first time ever, the votes were split between the right answer and the very wrong answer.

73,599 iOS and Android apps will turn 10 in 2023. That is, apps that were released in 2013 and are still available on the App Store or on Google Play.

If your app is on the list congrats for sticking it out for so long. 10 is a big number!

The split between the App Store and Google Play is nearly identical with Google Play owning 52% of the total.

Games were the single largest category, just as you'd expect, with 12,289 titles. Utilities, Education, Books, and Business round out the top five categories.

Can you guess which apps are on the list?

Here are a few names you may recognize:
