App Store passes 250,000 active apps

The App Store has kicked every single member of the competition’s butt so hard that they’re still staggering to catch up. To date, no one’s even come close to matching the numbers that Apple can lay claim to in their App Store. As of right now, they’re sitting at a staggering 252,227 applications available in the store, and another 49,696 applications sitting inactive, collecting dust. This month, there’s been 17,424 applications approved at the rate of 622 applications per day.

That’s a lot of code. The numbers are already up from 225,000 active applications last month. Apple’s not kidding when they say there’s an app for everything. If you can think of it, you can probably already find an application. But, finding the excellent applications in a saturated market are a little bit more difficult, and we’re doing our best to help highlight our favourites in our review section.

Oh, and if you’re looking to add some more fuel to the fire, some other news out today is that there’s a lot more for pay applications in the App Store than there are in the Android marketplace, so if you’re looking to start developing for a mobile operating system you might want to keep that in mind.
