Four weeks ago I prepared a short statistics on the success of the 21 app categories in the Mac App Store. Today, I visited the store again and compared the number of apps of each category in the US paid apps top 180 list with the number of four weeks ago:
There are some movements, obviously. Games are still extremely popular and make up more than a quarter of all apps in the top 180 list. Productivity and graphics & design apps are the winners and gained ground, the same is true for health & fitness, medical and business. Utilities lose ground, as well as education, weather, video, lifestyle and social networking. Sports and travel apps still don’t seem to be really popular.
