Android Now Has Just as Many Apps as iOS

Apple recently said that there are 700,000 iOS applications in its iTunes App Store. Google’s Android platform, which has typically trailed Apple’s iOS in terms of the number of applications available to its users, is now all caught up.

AllThingsD today said that a Google source has confirmed that it now also has more than 700,000 applications. That’s impressive growth for Android, which hasn’t had an app store as long as Apple has. Meanwhile, Microsoft said yesterday that the Windows Phone Store has 120,000 applications, but that it’s also growing quickly. More here.

This is great news. I think it's pretty incredible how quickly Android have managed to catch up with Apple when it comes to applications, that's interesting stuff because competition is always good for companies like that
