Google’s Android Market surpasses 500,000 successful submissions

In September, Google’s smartphone and tablet application store, the Android Market, surpassed 500,000 total published applications, according to a new report from research firm Research2guidance. With Apple’s App Store seeing more than 600,000 successful submissions, around 20% more than its rival app marketplace, the Android Market has seen more than 37% of the applications published be removed later, either by developers themselves or by Google, whereas Apple has seen less than a quarter of its apps (24%) removed in comparison, at the end of September. Research2guidance puts the increased number removals on Google’s platform down to the open nature of the Android Market, which allows developers to publish test applications, trials and low-quality applications, compared with Apple’s strict approval system, which prevents developers from submitting a number of trial applications and non-tested apps.
