The flood of iPhone apps hitting the AppStore doesn’t seem to be abating anytime soon. While the likes of the BlackBerry App World and webOS App Catalog add handfuls of apps at any one time, the AppStore last Friday saw an incredible surge of 1,394 iPhone apps going live. Apple, in a single day, approved more apps for the AppStore than there are apps in the entire App Catalog (many times more, in fact)!
To be fair, most of those iPhone apps were probably crap. We’ve seen too many free iPhone apps of marginal quality making their way into the AppStore to believe that more than a couple dozen of the nearly 1,400 newly-minted iPhone apps are anywhere near useful. But, that still doesn’t take away from the fact that the AppStore is still red-hot and still attracting mobile app developers in droves.
