According to AndroLib.com the Android Market hit 30,000 apps on February 24th, 2010. TechCrunch reported the 20,000 app milestone on December 15th, 2009 and predicted the Android Market would hit 50,000 apps by Q2 2010, I’d say that’s about right… well IN Q2 of 2010. Probably more like mid-May.
Anyhow, here are my calculations for when we can predict the next 40,000 app milestone:
12/15/2009 – 20,000 apps
2/24/2010 – 30,000 apps
In the last 2 weeks – +3,000 apps
At this rate, it should hit 40,000 on or around April 14th, this is of course assuming the rate stays the same and doesn’t increase. We’ll see. Have your own prediction? Post it in the comments.
