androidAndroid has come a long way since it was introduced by Google and today it was being reported that Google’s Android mobile operating system has more than 100,000 applications available in its marketplace! Android Dev tweeted which said “One hundred thousand apps in Android Market”.

Android marketplace is available in more than 20 countries across the world which was a push to help kick start more android development. In comparision, Apple has 280,000 iOS application in the market that you can download on your iPhone. However Android suffers from its tremendous growth which fragmented the OS which results in customized copies of the OS.

Market Analysts predict that at the current rate it will be a matter of time before the Android app numbers will over take the iPhone app numbers.
