Apple passes milestone in Apps on iOS platform

It's not surprising that it wasn't too long ago when we had talked about Apple celebrating 100,000 apps on the iOS platform and 2 months ago they were at 250,000, now we are looking at over 300,000 apps! Think back when the App store had first been revealed when the first iPhone was released and the first iPod touch. It was back in 2008 and looking at 2 years later I think Apple have gone through a huge milestone! Much of all these apps on the app store are thanks to the popularity of the iPhone and iPod Touch and that is mainly thanks to Apple's great marketing skills.RIM had also just recently only passed the 10,000 mark but have a long way to go in order to compare to the iOS platform. The massive amount of apps cover mostly books, and games then comes entertainment. So this goes to show the iPhone and iPod Touch along with the iPad make a great gaming device more over than any BlackBerry. The results show that just more than 1/4 of all apps were free apps. so that makes just around 75,000 apps, which is quite a lot. So yet another milestone for Apple and many more hopefully to come.

Apple Inc came clean on July 2, 2010 about an embarrassing software glitch that overstates network signal strength in its hot-selling iPhone, as complaints mounted about the phone's wraparound antenna. Apple admitted its signal strength miscalculation dates back to its original 2007 iPhone. It promised to fix the glitch in a few weeks, but did not directly address concerns that its antenna design causes reception problems for iPhone 4, its newest phone.  REUTERS/Eric Thayer/Files (UNITED STATES - Tags: BUSINESS SCI TECH)
