Back in March we reported
that the Android Market hit 30,000 total apps, but now a month later it has hit a new mark of 50,000 apps. This information is provided by Androlib
which tracks the total amount of Android apps and the amounts added each months, which is quoted saying "Honestly, we cannot guarantee we have everything but we think we are doing a pretty good job at it. Our number is high as some applications might have been taken out of the market. We count everything that has ever been added to the market. Updates do not count towards the overall number obviously." While 50,000 still does not match the amount of apps for the iPhone, the site AndroidPolice
believes it will hit 100,000 Android apps by September.
