220k mobile apps delisted from Google, Apple in Q1 2022 — the lowest number of removed apps in over a year

Apr 29, 2022 5:00:00 AM

There are roughly 5 million-plus mobile apps available for download across the Google Play Store and Apple App Store — but hundreds of thousands of apps are delisted (removed) from app stores each quarter.

Pixalate keeps tabs on delisted apps to keep you up to speed on the latest changes in the app marketplace.

According to Pixalate’s data, 219,635 apps were delisted across Google and Apple mobile app stores in Q1 2022 alone. However, the data reveals that the vast majority of delistings occurred on the Google Play Store:

  • 214,615 apps delisted from Google Play Store in Q1 2022
  • 5,020 apps delisted from Apple App Store in Q1 2022

Q1 2022 saw Google delist the fewest number of apps dating back to 2021

The 214,615 apps delisted from Google last quarter was the lowest single-quarter delisting dating back to the start of 2021:

Nearly twice as many apps were delisted from Google’s mobile app store in Q4 2021.

Only 5,000 apps were delisted from Apple App Store — down from nearly 100k a year ago

Apple also saw its lowest single-quarter delisting dating back to the start of 2021. The 5,020 apps delisted is by far the lowest number in a quarter. In Q1 2021, nearly 100,000 apps were delisted.

A relatively smaller number of apps were delisted from Apple in Q4 2021 as well (13.6k). 

Pixalate will continue to monitor to see if the number of apps delisted from both stores continues to decrease, or if we see a spike as 2022 progresses.
