Android Market could host 100,000 apps by the end of July
It’s no secret that the number of apps available through Google’s Android Market is rapidly growing – and the latest report from AndroidLib comes to confirm this once again.
Apparently, right now there are slightly over 90,000 Android apps available, with more than 9,000 of them being added since the beginning of the month.
The numbers can only go up from here, so it’s quite possible that we’ll see 100,000 applications in Android Market before the end of July.
To further boost the number of apps, Google has launched App Inventor for Android. As the name suggest, this literally lets you invent applications – and you don’t even need to be a developer, since App Inventor “requires no programming knowledge”, and “instead of writing code, you visually design the way the app looks and use blocks to specify the app’s behavior.” Find out more here at Google Labs, or in the video below (which shows how a completely useless app is being developed):
Meanwhile, the number of apps available through Apple’s App Store has surpassed 200,000. Yes, Android Market’s still far behind, but with the huge number of Android phones activated daily now, it should catch up soon.
