Google Play Store Reached 700,000 Apps, Equals Apple’s iTunes

Android has seen a tremendous evolution throughout the past couple of years; while Apple was ahead in the numbers game as far as application in its store are concerned, Google was no slouch coming in a close second. It appears that the Play Store has now reached another important landmark and has now, according to Mountain View, managed to catch up to Apple.

While everybody can definitely agree to the fact that quantity is not the defining factor — as there are mediocre, to say the least, apps is all application markets — Android fans will definitely be excited to hear the news. Now that the software title offering game has reached a tie, the two companies will probably start bragging about amounts paid to developers. Apple has just recently told everyone that it paid $6.5 billion to developers since the introduction of its online store. Also, the tablet market and dedicated apps seem to the a bragging topic: Apple is proud to have more than 275,000 applications developed especially for the iPad, while Google is still struggling in that specific chapter.
