Android Will Have 1 Million Apps by June 2013 (And Will Outspace the Apple App Store)
When the OS war started back in the days, numbers were thrown around often and one of the supposed reasons why iOS was better than Android was the number of available apps. But as Android adoption grew, so did app development, and today both Android and iOS have more apps than we could ever use. All the major companies have apps for both platforms so numbers don’t matter that much anymore but since we all like numbers, let’s give it a go.
Just a few months ago, Google announced that it had reached 700.000 Apps in its Google Play store and it is said that Google is now just a stone throw away from catching up with iOS. According to a new report by The Sociable, Android app development is outpacing iOS and Google is expected to reach the 1 million app milestone before Apple does and this probably in June 2013. Hurray! If we all need 1 Million apps and if all those apps are useful or even functional is another question but hey, congratulations Android!
