According to a study from OpenLogic, a software services vendor, licensing for open source are used widely in app store apps for mobiles.

The study looked at more than 450 Google Android and Apple App Store apps and discovered that 88% of Android apps had a source component that was open source. The corresponding figure in Apple iOS apps was 41%. This information highlight’s the firm’s new service known as OLEX App Store ed. This is set up to assist App Store developers to maintain compliance regarding licensing requirements in open source.

Although the open source component in Android apps is relatively high, OpenLogic says it is important to take note of the fact that the same number of Apple iOS and Android apps were examined during the study.
