Google writes on it’s Android blog


Twenty-five billion is more than twice the distance, in miles, that the Voyager 1 spacecraft has travelled since its launch 35 years ago. It’s the amount of time, in minutes, that have passed since some of our earliest ancestors began to set foot in Europe.


For comparison, Apple’s App Store that is the largest curated App Store of the world right now has over 700,000 applications available for download that have been downloaded over 30 billion time according to the data Apple made public at WWDC in June.
If you own an Android device then head to the Google Play store to buy your favorite apps while they are on sale. There is no rush though as the sale will stay on through out the week.
