Google Play Store Reaches 700,000 Apps

By Editorial Staff

Google has been trailing behind Apple in their application market, but now Google has closed the rather significant gap between the two. The Google Play Store has reached 700,000 applications available across all Android devices.

Last week at Apple’s iPad Mini event they announced that they have 700,000 applications available for download in the App Store, and less than a week later Google announced that they have reached the same amount of applications in the Google Play Store.

While the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store may have the same amount of applications avaliable for download, Apple still leads the pack with over 35 billion downloads and Apple has a much tougher approval process.
