Apps

  • Android To Surpass Apple’s App Store In Size By August 2011: Report (Exclusive)
  • App store analytics company Distimo has released a forecast that finds Android potentially surpassing the number of apps in Apple's App Store by the end of July 2011. Another research firm, research2guidance, backs up these findings by setting an August 2011 date. I suppose one big question is: Is this good for developers? On one hand, the app store gains a ton of traction, on the other, the apps are potentially buried beneath the sheer volume of apps entering the marketplace.
