According to third party analysts, we’re buying more iPhone (and iPad) apps and are undaunted by prices that are slowly creeping up.
Apple doesn’t give out detailed information, but an analyst for Piper Jaffray created a model for measuring purchases and shared it with CNNMoney columnist Philip Elmer-DeWitt.
While the story reports that app prices are up in 2011 after a decline in 2010, I have to note that there seem to be a lot of discounts offered, even by major app developers such as Electronic Arts. And 82% of apps in the store are free.
According to the story, the average iPhone owner will buy/download 83 apps this year.
