According this very good study by Mike Ratclife

  • To date, only 30%, or 30 companies out of the 100 surveyed have Apps in the Apple Apps Store
  • The 30 companies with Apps had launched 101 Apps. 
  • Nearly two thirds have only launched one or two Apps; The largest number of Apps sponsored by any one single company is nine – Merck and Sanofi.
  • All are free whether for the iPhone or iPad. The iPhone is the most popular platform accounting for 75% of all Apps, 50% are on the iPad and 25% are on both platforms.
  • These Apps are targeted at either consumers (patients), or professionals (providers). Nearly two thirds are aimed at consumers, while one third at professionals.
