According to the company, Flurry Analytics are being used by 55,000 companies over 135,000 applications. During 2011, analytics were set up for about 50,000 apps. The chart below shows the number of apps integrated with Flurry by quarter. The percent of new projects created for iOS is in gray and the percent of projects for Android is in green. Notice it's estimated that 73% of apps launched in Q4 will be iOS apps.
