Google’s Android OS seems to be going from strength to strength and hordes of developers have already embraced it as their OS of choice.
In fact, Android apps are multiplying like rabbits in heat, who were force fed a generous dose of Viagra and MDMA. The number of apps available on Android Market is expected to surpass 100,000 sometime this month. Just a year ago less than 7,000 aps were available for Android users and six months ago the number was under 25,000. In June alone, developers churned out 15,288 new apps and the positive trend continues.
Of course, a comparison with Apple’s App Store is inevitable. Apple has been the daddy of the mobile app market for a couple of years now and it still enjoys a massive lead, with 225,000 available apps. However, with such impressive growth, Android could narrow the gap and perhaps even overtake Apple over the next few quarters.
