2iOS Market Momentum
3Apple App Store
There are 425,000 apps in the App Store. Google just hit the 200,000 plateau for the Android Market in May. However, Verizon and Amazon also sell Android apps through their stores, which Google isn’t accounting for. Still, Apple has at least double the apps. The numbers don’t mean much by themselves, but most people argue Apple app quality is better.
