Who’s Winning the Battle for the Best-Stocked App Store?

first_imgRegardless of the platform, the report does point out that many of the top app developers publish across platforms. 58% of the 50 most popular publishers have already developed applications for non-Apple platforms. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The report also assesses how the introduction of more tablets may change the make-up of these app stores. Will other tablets follow the same pattern as the iPad did in terms of app sales? According to Distimo, iPads apps have become more expensive over time, while other stores seem to follow the opposite trend. The app store analytics firm Distimo has released its latest report on the size of the various mobile app stores, as well as the types and prices of apps that are most successful there. The report compares the Apple App Store for iPad, Apple App Store for iPhone, Apple Mac App Store, BlackBerry App World, GetJar, Google Android Market, Nokia Ovi Store, Palm App Catalog, and Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. Despite all the buzz surrounding apps and mobile devices, the report finds that these stores only experienced moderate growth over the last few months.No surprise, the Apple App Store still dominates, fueled primarily by the number of apps available for iPhone. However, when you separate that store into two – iPhone apps and iPad apps – you get a different picture. Despite being the largest store, the Apple App Store for iPhone was among the slowest growing stores in terms of relative growth. Even so, that growth was still second only to the Google Android Market in terms of absolutely growth. audrey watters Related Posts Tags:#mobile#web What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Google Android Market is now the clear leader in terms of free apps. As of March 2011, the total number of free apps there exceeded that in the Apple App Store for iPhone by more than 10,000. However, the number of paid apps in the Android Market is barely a third of the number of paid apps in the Apple App Store.Distimo predicts however, that the Android Market will catch up with Apple iPhone’s App Store by July. It also predicts that the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace will be larger than the Nokia Ovi Store and BlackBerry App World, prior to the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace being available for even a full year.

Ind vs SL Live Blog; Live cricket scores and commentary

first_imgPhew! India made a meal of this in the final overs of the first ODI between India and Sri Lanka from Hambantota on Saturday. Score | Photos Sangakkara played a wonderful knock and Thisara chipped in with a wonderful cameo. But, in the end, the asking rate was too much and Sri Lanka were always behind the eight ball. Malinga got some batting practice towards the end. Barring Irfan Pathan who bowled well, all the Indian bowlers were carted around. The Indian fielding was also very sloppy and they have a lot of work to do ahead of the second ODI.Ind vs SL: India 314/6 (Kohli 106, Sehwag 96) beat Sri Lanka 293/9 (Sangakkara 133; Irfan Pathan 2/37) by 21 runs10:45 pm | 49.6 overs: Umesh Yadav to Malinga, no run, India win by 21 runs, yorker length ball on the off stump, Malinga jams it hard to extra cover and he does not take the single, he is just walking to the other end as the fielder throws it to Dhoni, Malinga could have been run-out but Dhoni does not whip the bails off, good win this for India.49.6 Umesh Yadav to Malinga, no run, India win by 21 runs. 49.5 Umesh Yadav to Malinga, SIX, straight down the ground  49.4 Umesh Yadav to Malinga, FOUR, poor bowling this from Umesh, another short delivery that sits up nicely for Malinga on the stumps, he backs away and muscles the pull to the deep square leg fence  49.3 Umesh Yadav to Malinga, no run, Umesh comes round the wicket and bowls a short ball on middle, Malinga mistimes the pull to the leg side  49.2 Umesh Yadav to Malinga, SIX, oh boy, he has really hammered that, slow and short delivery outside off, Malinga fetches it from outside off stump and swats it crisply over the ropes at deep mid wicket  49.1 Umesh Yadav to Malinga, no run, full and slower delivery on middle, Malinga drills it to long on and he does not take the single advertisementRight, barring a massive miracle, India have sealed the deal. Umesh will bowl the final over. 10:38 pm | 39 overs: Sri Lanka require another 38 runs with 1 wicket and 6 balls remaining.Last man Nuwan Kulasekara, right handed bat, comes to the crease48.2 overs: WICKET! That’s the 9th one for SL. Irfan Pathan to Thisara Perera, out Caught by Virat Kohli!! That could be the end of the innings. Full ball on the stumps, Perera again clears the front leg and looks to launch it down the ground, he miscues it and Kohli at long on takes a simple catch.

Herath run out (Raina) 0(1) (SL 271/8 in 47.3 overs) Rangana Herath, left handed bat, comes to the crease 10:28 pm | 47.1 overs: WICKET! And Umesh gets rid of the man India wanted! Umesh Yadav to Sangakkara, out Bowled!! Umesh gets a massive wicket and that ends a fantastic knock. Sangakkara was walking to the off side as he looks to paddle it down to fine leg, but Umesh stays calm and bowls a full and straight delivery from round the wicket on leg stump, Sangakkara misses the paddle and the ball crashes into the leg stump. Sangakkara b Umesh Yadav 133(151) [4s-12] (SL 269/7 in 47.1 overs)10: 14 pm | 44.6 overs: Zaheer to Thisara Perera, FOUR, awesome shot from Perera, full ball and in the slot outside off, Perera clears the front leg and winds up to thrash it straight down the ground for a boundary, 14 runs in that over and this contest is very much alive.

It may just be on the line, and the umpire’s taking his time. A close call that, the angle from behind the stumps seems to give a clearer indication but since it’s a very close call, and not 100% conclusive, the benefit of the doubt has gone to the batsman. Not out, says the third umpire.advertisement9:50 pm | 40 overs: Sri Lanka are 203/6 with Sangakkara batting on 104 while new man Thisara Perera is on 6. Sanga is keeping the Indians a bay.9:45 pm | 38.6 overs: Century up for Sangakkara! A resolute one too. Ashwin to Sangakkara, 1 run, angled in on the pads, Sangakkara pushes it to long on to get to his 14th ODI century, it is his fifth against India, well played Sanga.

Fine bowling this from Ashwin. This is the carrom ball and it skids through on middle and leg stump, Thirimanne is caught back on the crease as he tries to work it to the leg side, misses it and gets hit on the pads, Ashwin appeals and the umpire raises the finger to send Thirimanne back on his way.

Two slips in place for Thirimanne. 9:35 pm | 35.2 overs: WICKET! Zaheer to Mathews, out Caught by Gambhir!! Clever bowling this from Zaheer. It was the knuckle ball and he lands it on a short of length, it kicks up from the deck outside off as Mathews makes room and looks to slash it over point, the ball hits the bat high on the splice and the miscued shot is safely taken at point by Gambhir. Mathews c Gambhir b Zaheer 7(17) (SL 172/5 in 35.2 overs) 9:10 pm | 32 overs: Drinks! Sri Lanka are 151/4 at the stage with Sangakkara holding fort on 70 while Mathews is batting on 4. Sri Lanka are still too far off the margin and need to score at 9.11 runs an over in order to overhaul the target of 315. India clearly have an edge here.9:00 pm | 30 overs: Sri Lanka are 137/4 at the stage with Kumar Sangakkara (60*) and new man Angelo Mathews (1*) in the middle.Angelo Mathews, right handed bat, comes to the crease8:54 pm | 28.3 overs: WICKET!

The arm ball from Ojha and it goes straight on, Mahela lunges forward and attempts the paddle, misses it and gets hit on the pads, Ojha appeals and the finger is raised from umpire Oxenford, that ball pitched in line and would have hit off stump. Mahela Jayawardene lbw b Ojha 12(8) [4s-1] (SL 132/4 in 28.3 overs)advertisementMahela Jayawardene, right handed bat, comes to the crease. Sangakkara is holding fort amidst the ruins. 8:40 pm | 25.2 overs: WICKET! Umesh Yadav to Chandimal, out Caught by Dhoni!! Umesh gets a vital wicket. Good length ball outside off and it straightens, Chandimal gets forward and pushes at it from slightly away from the body, gets a thick outside edge that is taken by Dhoni.

That brings up the 100 for Sri Lanka. They still have a mountain to climb.8:20 pm | 20 overs: Sri Lanka are 88/2 at the stage with Kumar Sangakkara batting on 38 and new man in the middle, Dinesh Chandimal on 1. The run rate at the moment is a poor 4.40 while the require run rate has escalated to 7.56 runs an over – tough ask for the Lankans.Dinesh Chandimal, right handed bat, comes to the crease8:15 pm | 18.5 overs: WICKET! Ashwin to Tharanga, out Caught by Sehwag!! That’s a good catch by Sehwag! Ashwin built the pressure with some dot balls and gets his reward. Gets this to bounce and turn a bit, Tharanga looks for the cut and gets a thick edge, Dhoni tries to take but it goes off his gloves to 1st slip where Sehwag takes a sharp overhead catch. The partnership was beginning to grow in strength and has been broken at a right time. Tharanga c Sehwag b Ashwin 28(47) [4s-2] (SL 86/2 in 18.5 overs)8:00 pm | 15 overs: Sri Lanka are 68/1 at the stage with Tharanga (22*) and Sangakkara (25*) in the middle.7:40 pm | 10 overs: Sri Lanka are 41/1 at the stage with Tharanga (13*) and Sangakkara in the middle (11*).

And Pathan strikes early! Irfan Pathan to Dilshan, out Lbw!! He has given him! That didn’t look out initially but let’s have a look at the replays. Replays in, and I’m not convinced still. Pitched on length on middle and nipped in, Dilshan was rooted to the crease and hit high on the pads. I think that might have gone over the stumps, Dilshan can’t believe it but Irfan Pathan strikes early. Sehwag will be relieved.. Dilshan lbw b Irfan Pathan 6(6) [4s-1]  (SL 9/1 in 1.2 overs)0.3 overs: Zaheer to Dilshan, no run, catch dropped by Sehwag. The favour is returned. Dilshan dropped Sehwag on 0, Sehwag drops Dilshan on 4. Simplest of chances at 1st slip. Have to feel for Zak – bowled a perfect outswinger and got the outside edge, went at a comfortable height to Sehwag but he miraculously managed to spill it.6:45 pm | 0.1 over: Zaheer to Tharanga, no run, good start that for Zaheer! Perfect length and perfect channel just outside off, straightens after pitching and beats Tharanga’s pokeSRI LANKA INNINGS: Target 315INDIA INNINGS – 314/6 in 50 overs (Sehwag 96, Kohli 106; Perera 3/70) India will be happy with the effort. They’re playing after a long break but they didn’t look rusty at all. Gambhir fell early but Sehwag and Kohli put on a huge 150+ stand. Sehwag fell short of his century but Kohli carried on and got his 12th ODI ton.  Sri Lanka, on the other hand, were sloppy on the field throughout. They dropped catches, missed a few run out chances and looked tired on the field. They will have to show a lot more energy if they are to chase this down. Join us shortly for the chase.6:16 | 49.6 overs: INNINGS! Thisara Perera to Irfan Pathan, 1 run, another low full toss, Pathan whips it to deep mid wicket, ends the innings with a single. India post 314 – a massive total thanks to Virat Kohli’s ton and Sehwag impressive 96 at the top.  6:15 pm | 49.5 overs: Thisara Perera to Irfan Pathan, 2 runs, catch dropped and 2 runs added. Poor, poor stuff from Thirimanne. Pathan mishits the lofted shot to long on where Thirimanne drops a sitter. Perera is furious, he isn’t happy with that fielding effort 6:14 pm | 49.3 overs: Thisara Perera to Irfan Pathan, no run, a bump-ball! Perera on a hat-trick. They’re appealing for a caught and bowled. Was it a bump-ball? The umpires are checking with the TV umpire. Is it another hat-trick for Perera? No. It hit the pitch before it flew to Perera. Ravichandran Ashwin, right handed bat, comes to the crease 6:12 pm | 49.2 overs: WICKET! And Dhoni’s helicopter fails to clear the man at the boundary. Thisara Perera to Dhoni, out Caught by Thirimanne!! Another good catch! And suddenly, Perera is on a hat-trick. Full and straight, Dhoni tries the helicopter whip-lash again but doesn’t get enough power behind it, Dhoni c Thirimanne b Thisara Perera 35(29) [4s-3 6s-1] (IND 307/6 in 49.2 overs) Irfan Pathan, left handed bat, comes to the crease6:10 pm | 49.1 overs: WICKET! Raina falls in the last over of the innings. Thisara Perera to Raina, out Caught by (sub)Senanayake!! Good catch that but Raina will be unhappy to miss out on a scoring opportunity. It was a full toss and Raina tried to heave it over the on side, mistimed it completely and hit it high towards mid wicket, Raina c (sub)Senanayake b Thisara Perera 50(45) [4s-3 6s-1] (IND 307/5 in 49.1 overs)6:07 pm | 48.3 overs: 50 up for Raina! Malinga to Raina, 1 run, missed run out! And it nearly injured Raina as well! Amidst all this, Raina has got to his FIFTY.5:55 pm | 46.1 overs: Malinga to Raina, SIX, they can get more than 300 if Raina continues to bat like that. That’s the first 6 of the match. In the slot for him and he lofts it over long on, 92 meters says the official reading. Big hit indeed.5:50 pm | 45 overs: India are 260/4 at the stage with Suresh Raina (30*) and MS Dhoni (14*) in the middle.MS Dhoni, right handed bat, comes to the crease 5:23 pm | 39.6 overs: WICKET! And Virat Kohli falls on the last ball of Perera’s over and that ends a brilliant knock from Kohli – yet another century for him – that’s this 12th one in ODIs. Thisara Perera to Virat Kohli, out Caught by (sub)Senanayake!! Gone now! Good bowling by Perera – he bowls a slow, loopy leg cutter and invites Kohli to go for the big shot, Kohli obliges and tries to drive it over extra cover but doesn’t get the elevation. Senanayake is sharp and takes a good overhead catch. Virat Kohli c (sub)Senanayake b Thisara Perera 106(113) [4s-9] (IND 228/4 in 39.6 overs)Stats: Kohli’s ton came off his 106 balls and was decorated with nine fours.5:13 pm | 37.4 overs: Malinga to Virat Kohli, 1 run, there it is! 12th ODI CENTURY for Virat Kohli. Drives a fullish ball to sweeper cover and gets there with a single, that’s his 4th ton against Sri Lanka – he loves batting against them. Removes his helmet and raises his bat to the cheers. He’s happy, and not angry. Good to see.  5:05 pm | 35.5 overs: Mathews to Raina, no run, Mathews is pleading for an lbw but I guess that pitched outside leg. 5:00 pm | 35 overs: India are 194/3 at the stage with Kohli batting on 84 and new man in the middle Suresh Raina on 1.4:56 pm | 33.6 overs: WICKET! And Rohit falls on the very over in which the Lankans took the bowling Powerplay! Mathews to Rohit Sharma, out Bowled!! Timbah! Rohit Sharma can be a bit lazy at the start of his innings and Mathews has hit the top of off stump with one that nipped in. Rohit was stuck on the crease and a bit late in bringing his bat down and that proved to be his downfall. Angelo is all smiles and Sri Lanka are fighting back. Rohit Sharma b Mathews 5(8) (IND 191/3 in 33.6 overs).4:52 pm | 33 overs: India are 187/2 at the stage with Kohli on 80 and new man Rohit Sharma on 3. Sri Lanka decide to take bowling Powerplay. A good move with Sharma still new to the crease.Rohit Sharma, right handed bat, comes to the crease 4:43 pm | 31.3 overs: WICKET! Run out and Sehwag falls 4 short of his ton! Poor decision there was absolutely no need for a risky single there. Thisara Perera to Virat Kohli, out Sehwag Run Out!! Expect Sehwag to commit harakiri and he does just that. There was no way he could’ve got a single as the ball was played to the left of the bowler who turned around and hit direct at Sehwag’s end. Sehwag run out (Thisara Perera) 96(97) [4s-10] (IND 180/2 in 31.3 overs).4:37 pm | 30 overs: India are cruising along on 130/1 at the stage with Sehwag batting on 95 and Kohli on 67.4:35 pm | 29.2 overs: Thisara Perera to Sehwag, 2 runs, worst cricket all around. To start off Sehwag played a lazy pull and a lazier effort from Malinga running in from fine leg.4:30 pm | 29.1 overs: Thisara Perera to Sehwag, FOUR, lot of room for Sehwag to play his favorite cut shot. Slashed away over point and beat third man comfortably. Moves into the nineties now.4:18 pm | 25 overs: India are 135/1 at the stage with both Sehwag and Kohli way past their half-tons.4:10 pm | 22.4 overs: 50 up for Kohli as well. Herath to Virat Kohli, 1 run, driven to long off, and that brings up 22nd ODI fifty for Virat Kohli. His amazing dream run continues in ODIs – this is his 5th successive score of 50 or more in the shorter format of the game.4:00 pm | 20 overs: India are 104/1 at the stage with Virender Sehwag (56*) and Virat Kohli (41*) batting steadily against the Sri Lankans.3:56 pm | 18.6 overs: Herath to Sehwag, FOUR, Sehwag spoils the good work done earlier in the over by Herath, that’s bowled flat and short on middle and he paddles it really fine, short fine gives chase but can’t drag it back in, 100 up for India.3:50 pm | 16.6 overs: 50 up for Sehwag. Herath to Sehwag, 1 run, gets to his 38th ODI fifty with a calm drive to long on. His 6th against Sri Lanka and though this has been Sehwag’s best knock, he has gutsed it out. Raises his bat to his mates. India are 89/1 at the stage.3:40 pm | 15 overs: Drinks! India are 75/1 at the stage with Virender Sehwag (42*) and Virat Kohli (28*) in the middle.14.4 overs: Perera to Sehwag, 1 run, appeal for lbw, Sehwag did move across to whip it square, short of a good length, got a thin inside edge, they scramble a quick single.3:20 pm | 10.4 overs: DROPPED! Perera to Kohli, no run, dropped, but this was a really difficult chance, Thisara was in his follow through, Kohli pushed one uppishly to the left of the bowler and he dived to his left, stuck out his left hand, but just couldn’t hold on.3:18 pm | 10.2 overs: Thisara Perera to Sehwag, no run, Kula came charging forward and seemed to have pulled off a blinder at mid off. But the replays proved inconclusive and the Benefit of Doubt went to Sehwag.Has Sehwag holed out? He isn’t walking. What a catch by Kula at mid off. Replays show that it may have bounced in front of Kula. Tony Greig on air has already declared it out. But his opinion doesn’t matter. What matters is the opinion of the TV umpire who has been called into play. Amidst all this Kula immediately went to ground after catching the ball, he might have pulled his hammy. He was holding his left leg. The TV umpire is taking a lot of looks at the replays which generally means one thing – the BOD will go to Sehwag. Will it be the same this time as well? Not-out is the decision and in the end the right call has been made. 3:15 pm | 10 overs: India are 45/1 at the stage with opener Virender Sehwag, who is making a comeback, and vice-captain Virat Kohli in the middle. Mathews to Virat Kohli, no run, full outside off, Virat Kohli drives well and finds cover. 2:55 pm | 4.6 overs: India are 18/1 at the stage with Sehwag and Kohli in the middle. Nuwan Kulasekara to Virat Kohli, no run, solid forward defence to end the over from Virat Kohli. Harsha Bhogle tweets: oh dear, absolutely nobody in hambantota…..as evening descends maybe….?Virat Kohli, right handed bat, comes to the crease  2: 45 | 2.2 overs: WICKET! And the opener walks… Nuwan Kulasekara to Gambhir, out Bowled!! Dilshan will be a happy man. After nearly being run-out last ball, Gambhir falls to the next one. Bowled around his legs. Exposed his leg stump as he tried to flick, it hit the pad and then ricocheted onto the stumps. Not a great delivery, but a wicket is a wicket. A soft one at that and India are 7/1 in the third over. Gambhir b Nuwan Kulasekara 3(6) (IND 7/1 in 2.2 overs)  2:35 pm | 0.6 overs: Nuwan Kulasekara to Sehwag, no run, big inswinger, drifting down leg, catches Sehwag on the pad who missed his flick. India are 2/0 at the stage. A regulation start there.Kohli: The break was good. It was good to get away from the game after a long season. We didn’t have the best of tours in England and Australia so the break was much needed. I’ve been preparing the same way as I did before, so nothing much has changed. I don’t like to throw away my wicket – that’s something I learnt, batting at the number 3 position. I just go out there and analyse my game according to the wicket and the situation. I don’t think about my batting when I’m waiting in the pavilion. I start thinking about it only when I walk in to bat. It is not going to be easy for us, hopefully we can start the series on a winning note.  Teams:  Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara(w), Mahela Jayawardene(c), Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews, Lahiru Thirimanne, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath India (Playing XI): Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni(w/c), Suresh Raina, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Pragyan Ojha, Umesh Yadav Mahela: It has been a tough season for us but the boys are working really hard. The results have come our way so the boys are confident. We should try and match India in the energy level despite having a busy season so far. The youngsters have played a part in our successes so a lot of things to look forward to in the series. Jeevan Mendis goes out, Herath comes in. Dhoni: I’ve been practising tosses during the off days so it’s good to win a toss! It looks a good pitch, it looks hard but not as hard as the practice wickets that we got. The breeze may be a factor as well. We’ll bat first. We want Pathan to play – he will be an all-rounder and both Ojha and Ashwin are playing as well. 2:00 pm | India have won the toss and elected to batlast_img read more
