Illustration for article titled Apple Approved Almost 1400 iPhone Apps Last Friday...Fourteen Freaking Hundred

The popularity of the App Store simply cannot be overstated. Last Friday, Apple approved their most ever apps in one day. 1394 of em. Over 300 were games.

That's like if the entire Blackberry App World catalog were published in just one day. 1400 is more than double the number of games currently on the PS3 (557) and just a tad short of the number of titles in the PS2's library (somewhere around 1,900).

In short, it's a lot of freaking software in terms of pretty much any platform...and it all came to the iPhone in just one day.

Now if only 1393 of the 1394 apps weren't tip calculators and digital whoopee cushions, we'd really be on to something. [App Shopper via MacRumors]

There is no app worth paying for. They are mostly crap. The really killer apps that people would want (Netflix, Hulu, VOIP, Google Voice, etc.) aren't getting approved. The games are mediocre. Who is going to play anything on the iPhone when they can play better games on their home setup?
