The iTunes App Store is officially crowded as hell, as Apple announces more than 100,000 applications now available for you to weed through in order to find anything good.
With over 2 billion applications downloaded across 20 categories in 77 countries, Apple is probably right when they call The App Store the "world's most popular applications store." Now that they've surpassed the 100,000 application mark, perhaps they can get around to making it a bit easier to find something useful.
"The App Store, now with over 100,000 applications available, is clearly a major differentiator for millions of iPhone and iPod touch customers around the world," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. "The iPhone SDK created the first great platform for mobile applications and our customers are loving all of the amazing apps our developers are creating."
I'm not saying there aren't a bunch of really great apps to be had, especially in the popular games category, but any store housing more than 100,000 titles is bound to be a real bitch to navigate.
So congratulations to Apple for this amazing achievement. We'd break things down by category to see how many of those 100,000 titles are games, but frankly trying to do so gives us a mild headache.
