Android Market Stats: 200,000 Apps, doubles since July
Google’s Android Market has been growing exponentially over last few months, it has now attained 200,000 apps mark.
Looking at the stats of Apple’s App Store for the iPhone, iPod and iPad, they still are higher in number at 300,000 but the gap is closing down much faster than we expected.
It has doubled since July in nearly 5 months.
At this point the word is not official but the Android Market tracker AndroLib.com is currently showing a total number of over 200,000 application and games available for download via the software portal. The point to be noted is that they ONLY have apps that are ON the market, no other stuff.
Download Stats: There is an significant rise in download stats as well. There are Over 103 downloads per second on average at the moment.
According to some of the latest estimates, the operating system would be able to beat iOS in 2011, and eventually take the first position on the mobile market by 2014, beating Symbian, but no one would be surprised if it happens before that.
Until official word on the number of applications and downloads in the Android Market is released, you can have a look at the latest stats available on AndroLib.com here.
