Apple Approved Nearly 1400 iPhone Apps Last Friday


AppShopper notes that Apple approved nearly 1400 iPhone and iPod touch applications last Friday, by far the largest number approved in a single day in the past few months. Over 300 of the approved applications were games, creating a host of new selections for consumers to choose from and continuing to feed Apple's emphasis on gaming for its mobile devices.

At the end of last week we saw a massive number of App approvals on the iTunes App Store. This resulted in a over 1300 apps (of which over 300 were games) appearing in one day alone. We had heard Apple had had quite a back log of approvals, so hopefully, they have cleared the queue for now.

Apple on Friday also launched the App Store Resource Center for iPhone OS developers, bringing together in one location a series of informational items aiming to help developers prepare for application submission and guide them through the approval process.
