ABI estimates mobile app downloads will more than triple this year, to 29B. It also believes Android Market (GOOG) passed the App Store (AAPL) as the download leader in Q2, with a share of 44% to the App Store's 31%. Nonetheless, ABI asserts Apple's "superior monetization policies" have translated into "a better catalog of apps." iTunes revenue hit $1.5B in Apple's calendar Q3.
