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.
