Android Market Will Hit 100,000 Apps This Month

Accumulated number of Application and Games in the Market

The graph speaks for itself. According to Android Market web interface, the Android Market now offers users more than 90,000 apps, and is on pace to end the month in six figures. It will reach this milestone several months shy of its second birthday. A year ago, the number was under 10,000.

We’ll keep an eye on the numbers and let you know when we get there. And while, of course, not every app is great, as the pie gets bigger, so does the slice that represents quality software.

    Yea Yea, most of them will be junk and spam like "sexy …etc etc..".

    • I disagree. I see lots of very slick apps coming out every day. Android Guys points some out almost every day.

      • ziddiri

        I hope so. But this is not enough, it is pity for a great o.s. like android.

    • ari-free

      The internet has much worse junk

    • Thebewilderedprophet

      Because the AppStore on iPhone os devices isn’t full of spam/rubbish/pointless apps, how many apps that make a fart noise does a device need exactly?

    To everyone that says that there is alot of veal in the market, I agree.
    But, let's say that 99% crap. That would still mean that there are a,1.000 of high quality apps.
    And even whit apps2sd you don't put so many apps on your phone.

    I would love for someone to create an app that will allow the sending and receiving of faxes. I understand there are technological and developmental complications but whomever figures this out will become rich overnight.

      you can already use ANY online fax service to use on your Android … just pick one that sends you email faxes in PDF format, easier to read 🙂 I've used efax a while back for a long time .. very simple: just type an email to a fax number [email protected] for example and it'll send it for you. Use any documents as attachments and eFax would send them in with the same fax (using the text from your email as cover page)

      There is a fax app for Android called ‘Mobile Fax’ (a href=””) that allows you to use your camera to take a picture and fax it. It depends on you taking a good camera shot. But I have used it in a pinch for work twice and it got me some praise.

    It only takes a few killer apps to make a big difference. Once we finally get Flash (ugh come on already!) Android will get tons of games, developers and a much better web experience.
    100k is just an indicator of how effective Android is in attracting developers. They have the freedom but it is up to them to come up with something cool.

  • that's awesome man 🙂

  • observer

    I saw a few really good music theory training apps for kids for iPHone … there is nothing alike for Android 🙁 it wouldn't make the most popular app, but it'll take attract a lot of teens in school to practice your notes, intervals etc..

    Having come from a blackberry, trust me – 90,000 apps is most welcome.

  • wow amazing…… !!!!!!!! increase more man

  • oky

    wowh… fantastic….
    android is the best…

  • Android like robot in Dragon balll.. 🙂

  • android is amazing

  • Yeah most of the apps realy suck. I some times wish I would have waited for the iphone to come out for Verizon which is near january 2011 but I kind of like how my droid x looks better. I just don’t like some of the apps. Why does there need to be like 20 of the same concept apps? Like gun apps. Think their should only be about 1,2, or 3 of the same concept apps. And I also think the android market should only launch the vest apps. Not the junk ones that are just useless. I also think they should look better and look less plain
    One of the only apps that I like that is well ploted, and thaught out is angry birds. I also like it because of. Its controlls and just the way it looks. So if your some body who is making apps for the andoid marker, stop making junk!

    wowh… it’s amazing…. android is the best

  • liz

    On the plus side, ANYONE can make and release an app for the android market. It’s not limited in the same way as others. Yes, this means there will be junk apps out there, but it also means there will be way more variety coming out; and as android continues to grow, there will be more and more amazing apps coming out. If you know what you are looking for (for example a to-do list app) and search for that, you don’t end up with all the junk apps showing up. And checking the reviews can give you a good idea if it’s worth downloading or not.
