Oh wow, what a surprise! Just kidding of course. According to Distimo, an app store analytics provider, Google’s Android Market is currently offering 134,342 free apps while Apple’s App Store is only offering 121,845 free apps. It might not be much but we’ll take 12,497 more apps as a great step in the right direction for Android apps at large. Engadget says this is a shocker. To them, we say that it isn’t!
The area that needs more work for the Android Market paid applications. The number of paid Android apps is only a third of Apple’s paid apps. Distimo tells us to expect the Android Market to dethrone Apple’s App Store and become the largest store in terms of number of applications within the next five months!
