Google Play tops 700,000 Android apps

Google has officially indicated that there are now more 700,000 apps in the Google Play Store, available for smartphones and tablets.  The news comes just a short week after Apple made the same claim for its App Store and looks to be a race to the next milestone.  After getting a late start against Apple four years ago this month, the Google Play Store/Android Market has grown some serious momentum en route to becoming the largest app distribution channel.
