Free vs. paid apps: “more than 89% of all downloads are free”

If we are to see a reversion to the mean and use online as an analog, the percentage of free should be closer to 99% than 89%. That’s how I see this trending over the long run.

At Distimo we think more than 89% of all downloads are free and we expect the proportion of free downloads to even increase in the coming years due to the success of in-app purchases.
