Google Play reaches 700,000 apps; ties Apple App Store

Google Play has reached a total of 700,000 apps available for Android devices.

Google announced just last month that they have reached 675,000 apps, and it seems that they were able to quickly catch up with Apple’s App Store, which was reported to also have 700,000 apps during the launch of the iPad Mini. Apple has made their abundance in apps for iOS a selling point against Android devices, but this milestone for Google evens out the playing field.

Microsoft has yet to catch up, with only 120,000 apps available for Windows Phone.
