Are smartphone owners beginning to suffer from app fatigue? App marketing firm Fiksu estimates iPhone app downloads fell 30% M/M in March, returning to pre-iPhone 4S levels. Assuming the figures are accurate, the many firms betting their futures on mobile apps need to hope the slowdown is just a short-term aberration from the torrid growth the market has been posting. App downloads made up a big chunk of Apple's (AAPL) $1.9B FQ2 iTunes revenue.

    Unbeleivable how many rumours and BS metrics are put out there on "Apple Decline" and "Apples in Trouble" on an almost daily basis- it's all just bloggers and sites in search of an audience

     

    Who the hell is Fiksu and how have they ever had any relevance to measuring Apples business ?

     

    Child please

    Maybe people were outside enjoying the nice weather...?
