App Store Tops 100,000 Available iPad Applications

app store ipad 100k
As noted by MacStories, Apple's App Store has reached yet another milestone, now offering over 100,000 iPad-specific applications.

Apple and third-party developers have set a new record: in 453 days since the original iPad came out on April 3, 2010, the App Store has more than 100,000 iPad-exclusive apps available. Either specifically targeting the tablet, or released as universal updates to existing iPhone apps, at the moment of writing this there are 100,161 iPad apps in the Store. How do I know? The App Store app itself on my iPad shows that.

Our sister site AppShopper, which tracks iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac App Store apps, currently has the available iPad app count at just over 106,000, as it relies on a slightly different recording method supplied by Apple's API for tracking App Store apps.

Apple currently offers over 400,000 total apps in its iOS App Store, and over 5,000 more in its Mac App Store.

You are being way to kind there. If more than 1000 apps on the market are not garbage I would be surprised.

Thanks for coming back to your routine. Your first post in this thread didn't make sense, after all.

But did you also know...

The Android Market is having 2X-3X more applications de-published every day compared to the App Store for a net gain of more applications still going into the Apps Store compared to the Android Market.

The problem with Distmo and other similar numbers is they only look at applications going in and not applications coming out. With Android, the out-going number is HUGE!

But the Android Market also has a much higher attrition rate which means many more are being pulled from the market as many are just experiments.

Here you go: http://www.readwriteweb.com/mobile/2011/06/android-app-attrition-rate-much-higher-than-ios-32-percent-vs-19-percent.php

Google is also removing a lot of them, given the 400% increase in malware.
