SD card owners may wish to purchase more memory devices to cope with the increasing popularity of downloadable apps.
Developers of Google's mobile operating system Android have announced more than ten billion apps have now been downloaded from its Android Market online vending site.
The popularity of the apps is growing at a dramatic pace. According to statistics from the developers, despite Android first being introduced in 2008 it took until July last year before one billion apps were downloaded.
Since then, the downloads have come at a much greater pace, with four billion occurring since July 2011.
Android states that the downloads are increasing by more than one billion every month and that it is excited by the possibilities of the future.
With the ever-increasing range of apps available, smartphone and tablet owners may wish purchase a larger SD card. The Verbatim 16GB Premium Micro SD (SDHC) - Class 10 has enough capacity for more than 16,000 minutes of mp3 music, so should be able to cope with a huge amount of apps.
