    I like to affectionately refer to it as the CrAPP-Store

    Some Good, Some Bad, but it's nice to have a wide selection to choose from. :) I'm sure with these new android phones on Verizon, the apps available for it will blow up over the next year.. Just takes some time!

    I totally agree. Open source allows for so much variety and creativity. With the propogation of multiple devices across multiple platforms, app developers have more incentive to get programs into the hands of as many people as possible. I could even see it catching up to the Apple App Store over time and even, yes I'm saying this, surpass it unless the iPhone goes to more carriers.

    True, does anyone know how many wireless customers Verizon has compared to AT&T?

    From the article: "According to AppsFire's analysis, by the time you hit the 1000th app (as far as popularity), you're looking at only 1.76 percent of users with the program installed. Once you pass the 2000th program, the number of active installs is barely a blip on the radar."

    Wow. 98,000 worthless applications.
