日前，美国移动广告服务商Mobclix公司的数据调查表明，苹果App Store应用数量已超30万款。据悉，该数据是App Store可下载免费应用和付费应用的总合。这也意味着，苹果只用了两年多一点的时间，就将App Store打造成最受欢迎的应用平台之一，其应用总数在今年8月28日时已超25万。
App Store于近日新增加了1000多款应用，目前总数已达30.0975万，其中20.6828万为付费应用，另外9.4147万为免费应用。这是苹果App Store领先其他应用商店的又一个里程碑，也预示着App Store应用数量正日渐逼近100万。
《财富》杂志的有关人士表示，App Store中还有许多不活跃的应用没有被市场调研公司统计入列。148apps调查指出，App Store目前共有33.4199万款已通过审核的应用，其中5.5508万是非活跃应用，另外27.8691万是活跃应用。AppShopper的调查则表明，苹果共有33.5257万已审核应用，非活跃应用为5.5282万，活跃应用达27.9975万。但没有一项调查可以有效统计App Store仅在海外而非美国本土发行的应用数量。
Apple’s App Store crosses 300,000 apps
Apple’s App Store now has more than 300,000 apps as of the past day.
Mobclix’s data shows that in the past 24 hours, Apple added the 300,000th app to its App Store. The number includes both free and paid apps available for downloading. That means that in a little more than two years, Apple has created one of the most population application platforms of all time. Apple crossed 250,000 apps on Aug. 28.
More than 1,000 new apps were added in the past day or so. At the moment, there are 300,975 apps, including 206,828 paid apps and 94,147 free apps. This is yet another significant milestone that shows how far a lead Apple has on others. How long will it be before there are a million apps on the App Store?
Our friends at Fortune have pointed out that there are a lot of inactive apps on the App Store and that other firms don’t count them. 148apps notes there are 334,199 apps approved, 55,508 inactive aps, and 278,691 active apps. AppShopper says there are 335,257 approved apps, 55,282 inactive apps and 279,975 active apps. Neither of these has found an efficient way to count apps that are released overseas but not in the U.S. App Store.
By comparison, AndroLib.com reports there are 113,123 apps in the Android Market, though Google said last week there were 90,00 Android apps.（source:venturebeat）
