According to the “Android Market Insights September 2011” report from research2guidance, the Android Market reached 500,000 applications for the first time. Tempering that number and any associated excitement, however, is the fact that 37% of all the apps submitted to the Market have been deactivated over time, leaving 370,000 apps left. So it goes.

However, a record 42,000 apps were submitted to the Android Market this September alone, which is a good sign for Android users.

Some other interesting stats from the report include the following: Over a third (34%) of all active apps were paid, at an average price of $3.18. However, of newly-submitted apps, just 26% require your hard-earned dollars, which points to a possible trend of more free apps in the Market.

Android Market is becoming less and less cool it seems. The apps that most defined what I liked when comparing to Apple have all been banned.

Android market is very popular. Not only android tablet pcs, but android phones!

It sure is, and its growing day by day! Sure, theres lots that needs cleaned up, but I think its heading in the right direction.

But Google really does need to find ways to make it more attractive for developers, as Amazon is doing better in this point than Google is.
