iPad Reaches 100,000 Apps

The iPad has reached a notable milestone: There are now over 100,000 applications made specifically for this tablet. Considering the iPad has been available for less than a year and a half and developers have only had access to the iPad's software development kit since January 2010, this is a noteworthy accomplishment.

Although the iPad launched with the promise of supporting "almost all" of the apps previously on the App Store, many applications still benefit from a design that is made specifically with the larger screen of the iPad in mind.  

When Apple introduced the iPad 2 in March of this year, the company said it had about 65,000 applications in the App Store designed with the iPad in mind. A few weeks ago at WWDC, the company said it was up to 90,000 apps.
