[Infographic] How the App Stores “Really” Stack Up

If you liken app stores to race horses, Apple is the biggest, baddest thoroughbred in town. Google Play is a fine specimen with some distinct qualities but has a lot of work to do in the practice yard before catching up. Everything else is an also-ran. Windows Phone has been growing rapidly, increasing from 40,000 apps in Nov. 2011 to 70,000 at the most recent count. Then there is BlackBerry App World. For all of Research In Motion’s troubles, its app repository is tied with Windows Phone at 70,000, which includes 15,000 specifically designed for the BlackBerry PlayBook. There are no tablet apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace, mostly because there is no Windows tablet (well, one worth anything).

Move like Google

A nivel interno, nos encontramos con una empresa que siempre aparece en los primeros puestos del ranking de “Mejor Empresa para Trabajar en el Mundo”. Una empresa que es capaz de mantener la motivación de sus empleados con acciones sorprendentes, atrevidas y siempre con el trasfondo de colaborar, unir esfuerzos, crear equipo. Algo tan simple como dar a cada empleado 50 dólares final de año para destinarlo al organismo benéfico que consideren es un ejercicio capitalizable y meritorio.

“Muévete como Google. Ésta podría ser la frase lapidaria que deberíamos tener todos los comunicadores para adaptarnos a los actuales tiempos de radical transparencia y conectividad. Hace unos días tuve la suerte de leer un libro titulado “¿Qué haría Google?”, del reputado periodista Jeff Jarvis, y su contenido me apasionó.

¿Seguimos en las empresas tan cegados que pensamos que tenemos el control absoluto sobre las decisiones de nuestros clientes, sobre nuestros empleados? En su libro, Jarvis defendía que el gran acierto de Google había sido dar el poder a la gente, abrir las puertas de su empresa y sus secretos, para que el público le enseñara a ser mejor; le marcara el camino para crecer.

Nadie puede decir lo contrario hoy en día. Si no existes en Google no existes en absoluto. Además, estamos hablando de una empresa que ya obtiene beneficios gracias a la red. Concretamente el año pasado ingresó por publicidad más que todos los periódicos de Estados Unidos juntos. Google ha sabido sacar rentabilidad de internet y su crecimiento es absolutamente imparable gracias a ti, a mí y a todos los que nos movemos por la Red de Redes. Google ha cedido el trono a sus clientes y éstos le han devuelto aplicaciones a 0 euros de coste para ellos. Le han marcado y creado nuevos contenidos que le permiten ser un buscador más inteligente, más eficaz, mejor… Y por lo tanto más imprescindible para nosotros. Leer más “Move like Google”

Google Aggregates Their Entertainment Offerings Into ‘Google Play’

Jamie Rosenberg, Google’s Director of Digital Content, recently posted on Google’s official blog about the new Google Play integrated service. It allows you to store your books, movies, apps and games on the cloud, and then lets you access them from whatever Google device you desire. This is a smart move that not only helps remove the frustration of copying files from one place to another, but also helps Google future-proof against privacy — once users are using Cloud systems more often it will be easier for Google to ensure that you’re using paid-for apps and movies.

According to the blog post, “starting today, the Android Market, Google Music and Google eBookstore will become part of Google Play.”  It’s not entirely clear whether they’re going to rename the market completely, but it does seem like that’s the plan — your Android market application will be updated and renamed in the coming days and the Google Market will be no more.
