Does iOS have more apps than Android?

Are there more apps on the App Store or Android Market?

I think they are even-ish at this stage. But once you're past 50,000 it's all just noise to me :p

The official figures aren't released very often. Last time they were iOS was in the lead with Android catching up fast. They're both massive app stores though with hundreds of thousands of apps.

Nowadays it really doesn't matter which one you go for, they're both so comprehensive when it comes to app selection. As a general rule iOS apps do tend to be of a higher quality though, not that there aren't good Android apps either.

Also, to put what Jan said in perspective, if 50,000+ big enough both the App Store and the Android Market are currently circa half a million apps.
