“Two services that track the iPhone App Store – AppShopper and 148Apps, announced on Saturday that there have been over 10,000 iPhone applications released on the US App Store,” Raven Zachary reports for O’Reilly Radar.
“The number of currently available applications is just shy of 10,000 due to discontinued apps and a few that have been pulled by Apple (e.g. trademark disputes, terms of service violations, etc.). AppSherpa believes that it will only be a few more days until there are 10,000 iPhone applications available for sale on the US App Store. Total international App Store numbers are not being tracked by anyone outside of Apple, as far as I can tell,” Zachary reports.
Zachary also notes, “The most expensive application currently for sale is iRa by Lextech Labs for $899.99. This is video surveillance application that integrates with a number of CCTV systems.”
