Google: Hold Up, There Aren't That Many Android Apps

Yesterday's report from Android tracking site AndroLib that the Android Market had probably surpassed 20,000 apps was heartening for Android users and industry watchers alike. Minor issue! According to Google, they overshot the figure by about 20%. Still, the current count of 16,000 apps sit on a pretty healthy growth curve, if not a particularly steep one. So anyway, continue to party! Just a little less hearty. [MobileCrunch]



I almost feel like people would prefer to develop for the iPhone because there is only really one set of hardware, and resolution to worry about. Sure there are slight variations on phone models, but not like the android developing with all different screen types.
