50,000 Apps Surpassed by Android Market
Google’s Android platform is still very much in its infancy, but it is spreading across numerous smartphones and with it the Android Market, and according to an article over on the boy genius report, Android application growth is getting better.
The definitive tracker of Android apps, AndroLib states that the Android Market has surpassed the 50K app milestone, although the figure is unofficial as Google has been somewhat restrained in disclosing actual Android Market app numbers.
Google has however said that they are aware the Android Market has 38,000 apps but the accuracy of that figure was calculated at an undisclosed time. The word is last month the Android Market grew by some 9330 applications, which isn’t a bad figure for a month.
Obviously the Android Market has a long way to go before getting anywhere near the Apple App Store in terms of app number offered, but it is improving nonetheless, and will no doubt continue to grow and come closer to becoming a force to contend with.
