Report: Android Market surpasses 100,000 apps
According to a report from AndroLib, Google's Android Market for mobile applications has surpassed 100,000 applications. The AndroLib team say they're confident that "at least 100,000 applications have been submitted to the Android market since its creation", but also point out that not all of them are active apps. They estimate the active number to be closer to 83,000.
It's worth noting that the statistics reported by AndroLib aren't officially provided by Google. In mid-July as part of its second quarter 2010 financial results, Google said that the Android Market had reached more than 70,000 applications. Four months previously, the market only officially contained 30,000 apps, up from just 16,000 in mid-December of 2009.
AndroLib also provides other statistics, including the number of new applications by month, new applications and games published per day, and per day break downs of each of the markets, such as the US, UK, French and German Android Markets.
