Apple's App Store Goes 100,000 Deep
Today, Apple has announced that the 100,000th application was let loose. That's a huge, huge number. The Palm application store and Android Market both lag behind in a big way (we're talking tens of thousands less options), and it's clear that the momentum is all in favor of Apple. Of course, many will say that most of those apps go unused and are generally worthless. That's certainly true on some levels, but this 100,000 number is bigger than that. This proves that the best app developers will spend their time generating apps for Apple, and not for others. If a dev has an idea and has time to make an application for one single platform, which platform do you think he or she will pick? Exactly.
Kudos to Apple on the milestone, and good luck on your way to a million. Oh, and yes, we totally believe that'll happen in due time, particularly if the company stops rejecting so many apps on some silly grounds.
