App Count

Philip Elmer-DeWitt:

The number of offerings on the App Store — the venue for independently produced programs that helps distinguish Apple’s smartphone from all others — hit 1,001 on Monday night.

The total app count isn’t that interesting to me, because the majority of the apps are just plain crap. The real question is how many apps in the App Store are actually of decent quality. My guess is around 100. (Sturgeon’s Law at work?)
