Apple apps total over 100K

Posted: November 4, 2009 in All News

Apple today announced that developers have created over 100,000 apps for the App Store, the largest applications store in the world. iPhone and iPod touch customers in 77 countries can choose from an incredible range of apps in 20 categories, including games, business, news, sports, health, reference and travel. App Store users have downloaded well over two billion apps, continuing to make it the world’s most popular applications store.

However, behind all the media hype, Apple still has a long way to go. According to Canalys; the iPhone operating system only has 13.7% of the global market.

Nokia, Palm, LG, Motorola and Canada’s Research In Motion are already launching new smartphones this winter. Nokia, RIM and Sony Ericcson have also joined the app store frenzy. Good news for mobile developers.
