In total, Google Play has also received 48 million app installs across all developers that have launched applications in the Android marketplace. They intend to increase those numbers, and cited that with 7 billion total people in the world they have a lot more room to grow.

In the last month alone, there have been 2.5 billion app installs. Furthermore, in the last four months more money has been paid to developers than the entire total for last year. That's insane! In just four months developers have made more money than an entire year's worth of revenue.
