App Store Hits 300,000, tough task ahead for Apple rivals
Here’s the proof to show that Apple really does “have an app for that,” the iTunes App Store now has over 300,000 apps available.
This number will keep the competing tablet computers find hard to argue with 300,000. That’s how many apps are now at the iTunes App Store, ready to be downloaded to your iPad, iPhone or iPod. The coming flood of “iPad killers” won’t have anywhere near the wide selection of applications available for the pioneering Apple tablet, and that could play a large role in which people will chose to purchase.
The iPad is likely to hold onto its dominance of the market for the next several months. That will encourage more developers to work on new apps for the iPad and maybe do an Android version as an afterthought. The escalating number of new apps isn’t going to be slowing down anytime soon.
