Research firm Research2Guidance has made a study public which shows that Google’s Android Market has surpassed the 500,000 published apps mark as of last month. As a comparison, Apple made the numbers official for the same amount of software back at the end of May.
While Apple’s iTunes App Store is now beyond 600,000 titles, the study shows that more than 37% of the applications published to the Android Market were removed at a later time because of various reasons. In contrast, Apple App Store titles were only removed in amount of 24% from the total published. Of course, numbers are great to see regardless of the platform of your choice but the real battle comes down to usable and useful apps. At 500K+, chances are you’ll pretty much find anything you’re looking for, just ignore the “uninteresting” ones. If you are interested in further details, hit up the source link.
