The growth of the Android Market is continuing to pick up pace, with the latest figures revealing an impressive 100,000 apps have so far been submitted for approval in Google’s app store.
This figure is twice as large as it was three months ago. Though the number does not translate directly into apps which are eventually published on the Android Market as many still fail to live up to Google's fairly lenient standards.
It is estimated that there are currently around 85,000 apps on the Android market, which means that up to 15,000 have been rejected.
Google is not known for being as strict in its approval policy as rival Apple, which has been criticised for its censorship of certain iPhone apps.
If Google's app platform continues to grow at its current rate then it is in all likelihood going to overtake the iPhone's App Store in the future.
That said, whether the quality of Android apps are nearly as high or as consistent to those of the iPhone’s or not remains in question as many are convinced that Apple still has the upper hand in that regard.
