Apple App Store Milestone: 100,000 apps

Reaching yet another milestone, Apple's App Store has broken the 100,000 approved applications mark. According to TheNextWeb, Apple has approved 101,713 applications and games.

Of course, not all of these are available immediately as many have just been accepted. The App Store currently has 93,000 released applications. This is up from a reported 65,000 in August.

According to iPhonesTalk, analysts have predicted the 200,000 mark will be reached next year and by the end of 2010, there will be 250,000 applications.

Some recent additions to the app store include an app from NASA which brings countdown clocks, videos and Twitter feeds to the iPhone. Reportedly, this app will even let you know when the Space Station is passing overhead! Also, TomTom has released an App offering turn-by-turn directions.

100,000 apps certainly offers a lot of choice to the end-user and App Store users should be pleased with the milestone.
