Navigating the App Store
Apple now has around 25,000 applications in its application horde, Google had about 2,300 in March, and RIM has about 1,000. Apple now has sold over 1 billion applications, Reuters reports.
I'm quoted in the article, saying that the app choices can be a trifle overwhelming at times, and I do think that the next change that needs to happen with these app stores is to find more and better ways to search for what users want.
For instance: When looking at a new application on the G1, it would be nice to get a list of other applications that users who downloaded that program had also downloaded. I'm sure readers have other ideas on this, too.
