    +1 from me. I think the more apps that show up will mean the competition will be heating up to get a better one out there. I just realized that I did not have a shopping app yet so thanks mikeinctown for reminding me on that. We will also have the nonsense apps. Hopefully the App store will be tweaked where we can sort by ratings, and have the main apps listed first then the add-ons to the apps listed afterwards.

    JayMonster makes a good point...I do not condone the idea of censoring applications and games because one of the "powers of be" feels threatens or finds it to be not needed. PC's and Mac's have done just fine with self-regulation and even minor changes in similar apps may benefit someone.

    It just comes down to being able to find what you are looking for and better sorting techniques. Maybe a better internet database that allows for sorting and searching too. As of right now an app can be buried and without constant monitoring and scrolling you will not find it...not effective without hassle. Improvements I am sure will be made.

    Rather than spend a lot of time searching the market for apps, I rely on some of the posting here by fellow Droidies. As we find stuff that works for us, we should share it with the rest. Almost 1,000,000 Droids sold so lots of room for more applications.

    many people automatically want the iphone right off the bat when they hear about 100,000 apps and everything that the phone is capable of. This is the same for the droid. I think that the number of apps is just a marketing technique to draw buyers in. People hear that there are 20,000, but the phone has only been out for a couple of months. This makes them very excited to try the product.

    How many apps do you think are actually useful with the iphone. Android will grow, just give it time.

    I hope this doesn't turn into a iphone copycat league. I don't want to see 30+ flashlight, or 30+ farts, all copy's of each other. Yeah the iphone has alot more apps, but how many of those are just copycat's of other apps? I fear the android market is going in the same direction.......

    Of course that is going to happen, unless you think you can stop people from creating apps, it's just the way it is.
