    If you did that, new apps wouldn't have a chance.

    Aside from that, and app that doesn't appeal to most people might be perfect for something you need.

    Google needs to leverage it's search technology for the market. It's kind of ironic that the company that makes arguably the best search engine has the worst search capability in it's app store.

    I just wish they would make the market searchable from a desktop.

    Unfortunately, and although I despise apples walled garden method, 90,000 of those apps are craps

    Would love to see Google get more strict in the market BUT create a second market that has fewer requirements AND still allow us to side load. Then we'd be in busines.

    AppBrain fixes all the problems about not being able to search the market and even lets you send an app to your phone while on your PC. We have been tracking the 100,000 countdown for a week...

    I am stunned to see a one-day jump of 6,000 apps?

    I'm saying it should be an option, not the only way to search. Some people may have the time or interest in testing out these new apps, but not me. I can wait a couple weeks for other people to test them out first and post their ratings.

    Google publicly stated in the earnings conference call that the market hadn't passed the 100,000 mark yet. Considering that the only ones that know for sure is Google, you shouldn't believe what you read on other sites.

    Depends what Google include in their figures. Do they include apps that are regionally specific, side loaded from other markets like Slide Me, available direct from the developer etc?

    To be honest, I can't really get excited about a raw number, that includes a huge amount of duplication with free and paid versions etc. and so many sub par apps. What does excite me is the critical mass of devices in the market and Andoid Market's increasing capability to service the demand for paid apps internationally (which needs to accelerate). These are the factors which will draw in quality development to the platform.

    Exactly. According to Google, the Market just passed the 1 Billion mark downloads and the 70k apps milestone. By that rate, it will be few months before Google officially announces 100k milestone.

    Google does not include many of our favorite apps like Titanium paid edition. Androilib is now at 94629.

    Umm Google just announced several days ago that it just hit 70,000. So I don't think it will hit 100k already. Probably by the end of the year.
