According to AppShopper, Apple's App Store has surpassed 100,000 approved iPhone and iPod touch applications. The mark is an unofficial milestone, however, as the count of currently available applications stands at only approximately 92,000. The difference results from the removal of applications from the App Store by either Apple or the applications' developers.
Apple's most recent official announcement of App Store application count occurred in late September, when the store surpassed two billion downloads with 85,000 available apps. The 85,000-app figure was repeated at Apple's earnings conference call earlier this week.
