pocketgamer：Android Market应用增长率逼近App Store
Android平台最近频频传来喜报，不但手机产品销售强劲，而且广告市场份额也已对苹果iOS构成威胁，但从应用开发角度来看，最重要的消息莫过于Android Market应用数量也在奋力追击苹果App Store。
据148.biz网站的调查数据显示，今年10月份，开发商向Android Market提交的待审核应用首次超过2万款，仅略少于App Store。
在今年初，148.biz网站的数据表明，Android Market每月待审核的应用还不及5000款，而同一时期，App Store的待审核应用早已超过2万款。
也就是说，在不到一年的时间内，Android Market的产品数量增长率就已经直逼App Store这个劲敌。不过，在最热门的应用种类调查中，待审核的iPhone游戏数量仍然比Android Market的同类产品更占优势。（本文为游戏邦/gamerboom.com编译，转载请注明来源：游戏邦）
Number of Android Market app submissions now equal to App Store
An increase in handset sales and a surge in its ad share are both positive indicators for Android, but most important from a development perspective is the number of apps headed to its marketplace.
According to stats collated by 148apps.biz – re-published by asymco – app submissions to Android Market are now roughly equal to the number being made to the App Store.
Apps for Android
Figures for October have both topping the 20,000 mark for the first time, with the App Store slightly ahead.
It’s the sheer rate of acceleration in app submissions that will be most cause for celebration for Android, however.
At the start of the year, 148apps.biz’s figures suggest less than 5,000 new apps a month were being submitted to Android Market, compared the 20,000 plus apps the App Store was receiving.
Now, in less than a year, Android Market has as good as pulled level with its rival, although with books reportedly the most popular category, it’s likely iPhone will still holds the advantage when it comes to games submissions.（source:pocketgamer）
