Android Market Reaches 150,000 Apps And Counting.


9 months ago, the Android market contained less than 50,000 apps. Fast forward to the present and that number has risen, dramatically. The latest word from Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, puts the current number at just over 150,000 — a 3x in crease! No, it’s still a far cry from Apple’s 300,000+, but we’ll take it nonetheless.

While Apple hit 150,000 apps back in February of 2010, iOS and the App Store has (1) been around longer and (2) featured a web store (iTunes) that users can browse through the vast library of apps with. Up until just a few weeks ago, Android didn’t have the latter meaning sifting through each and every app had to be done on your phone. Now that the tables are more level, we expect to see Android’s popularity and app count increase accordingly.
