Android Market to Hit 100,000 Apps Soon
Google’s mobile OS app store, Android Market, is experiencing rapid growth; the store has 90,000 apps in its library at the moment and many are predicting that if the growth rate continues Android Market will hit 100,000 apps before the end of the month. Additionally, if Android Market can sustain its growth, it will soon be able to catch up to the iPhone’s App Store. Whether the apps are up to snuff, Google’s non-curated store model has really been a success despite talks of fragmentation, which Gingerbread may aim to resolve in a move that parallels Microsof’s Windows Mobile to Windows Phone transition.
