Apple's App Store is still the big dog on the block, but the Android App Market is closing in a little more every day. Android users are the only folks outside of the iPhone-fold who actually have a significant amount of choice in their app shopping decisions. According to MobileCrunch, the App Market just hit 20,000 apps. The data comes from AndroLib, an application library that has been recording information about the size and composition of the Market for a while now. Its been just 5 months since AndroLib announced that the Market had hit 10,000 apps. Less than half a year to double in size is pretty impressive growth. As Android grows increasingly popular in 2010, the number of Android apps are only going to grow. I think it's likely we'll see the Market equal (and possibly surpass) the App Store in size within the next three to four years. 38% of Android apps are paid, which points to a lot of developers finding the platform profitable to work on. We should see that fraction increase over the next year as well.
