Unofficial Count Has Android Market Hovering Near 25,000 Apps

It has been barely a month  since we talked about the number of apps unofficially hitting the 20,000 mark and we’re ready for another milestone.  At some point in the next few days, the tally should put the Android Market at 25,000 apps.

Keep in mind that these numbers from Androlib don’t match exactly the totals in the market but as there are no other proven way of getting these figures from the official Market pages they can still be considered an indication of the growth.

So the predictions we’ve made in December about hitting 30,000 in the next 2-3 months might have been underestimated!

It is also interesting to note that, the number of paid apps is getting (slowly) higher. Last September it was 35.7%, in December 37.7% and today 39.2%.

In term of satisfaction, 62.14% of users are happy with their apps with 42.8% of them at 5 stars rating (English Market). Considering there sheer volume (so far), it sounds like a lot of crappy applications polluting the Market.
