The Android Market has reached over 500,000 successfully submitted applications, according to data collected from the mobile application market intelligence firm, Research2Guidance. According to the same report, Apple stood at just over 600,000 submissions or 20 percent more than Android.
Report also mentions that over 37% of the applications published were later removed from the Android Market for various reasons, whereas the Apple App Store has removed just 24% of published apps in comparison, as of the end of September.
This is a huge milestone for Android and hopefully things get even better. This might very well be due to the open nature of the Android Market, meaning quality control is not that high compared to Apple’s rather strict (some say draconian) approval system. What do you think, and who will end up as the winner in the end?
