iPad: the record of 10,000 apps has already passed – Macitynet.it
Over 10,000 apps for iPad are already available on the App Store. This new record of the Apple tablet was recorded in the last days of last week thanks to the data found on the App Store via the PadGadget Apps Tracker app. The App account takes into account both the apps written specifically for iPad and the universal ones, that is, individual programs already ready and optimized to work on the iPhone, touch and also to take advantage of the larger screen of the tablet.
iPad can obviously count on an already functioning and established app market, so it is not surprising that it took only 63 days from the April 3 launch in the USA to reach the milestone of 10,000 apps. For iPhone it took about 5 months to reach the same goal, while for Android it took 11 months. Based on the total available apps, iPad ranks as the third mobile platform after iPhone with 250 thousand apps and Android with 50 thousand apps.
