    Default Android Market applications approaching 100,000

    From the recent statistics published by Androlib, the number of Android apps is approaching to 100k!
    This chart shows the accumulated number of apps plotted against the time. The exponential growth of the apps is insane!!!






    The below chart shows the number of apps per month. In June this was 15k, so in July it will be probably more than that.
    I'd say a clear sign of world domination...

    That's really insane. BTW I have read somewhere that it will 100,000 by the year end but never expected that it will be doing it that fast .
    And u look at that its open source, u have the ability to try different different stuffs, roms and number of free apps its future looks much more promising than any other OS.

    That year-end projection was probably based on the linear growth. This is close to exponential, and the 100k line is expected to cross this month (July).

    This growth is evidenced by more and more developers switching to Android.
    I read that it is actually cheaper to be a developer for Android than for iphone, which explains the huge number of simple apps in Android Market.
