Android Market Hits 500,000 Published Applications

It’s been a long time coming but according to the data from “mobile app market intelligence firm” Research2Guidance, the Android Market seems to have hit the half a million app mark with a little over 500,000 applications published for the month of September. Another tidbit I found interesting is that over 37% of app submissions have also been removed at some point for various reasons.

In comparison, the Apple App Store stands 600,000 apps strong and has about a 24% removal rate. What’s more is according to the data, Android developers seem to be a tad more “productive” than their Apple’s counterparts, publishing around more than 6 apps to the Android Market since its launch. Compare that to around 4 published apps per developer in Apple’s App Store.

While this is quite a landmark for Android, there’s always the argument of quality vs. quantity. Let’s hope now that the Android Market has the quantity, Google may begin policing their Market a little better and get rid of things like duplicate apps and blatant theft
