According to unconfirmed figures collected by AndroLib, Android users have now downloaded more than one billion applications, with the rate of downloads increasing at a very nifty pace.
The AndroLib site features a real-time estimated view of the number of applications being downloading in the Android Market, and it’s hurtling upwards at a terrific rate.
New applications are steaming into the Market at an incredible speed too, with over 14,000 new apps arriving in May, 15,000+ apps in June, and July’s running total has already passed 11,000.
Doubling in size
With the Android Market passing the 50,000 app mark in late April/early May, it’s already doubled in size in just two months, which is a remarkable achievement.
With Google saying that it is now activating 66,000 new Android handsets per day (and rising) and a slew of new Android handsets coming up, it’s fair it’s all going a bit Yazz for the platform.
