Android Market is in a continous growth. Recent news says that the Android Market has now 400,000 active applications. Of course in this high number of apps, you’ll find great quality apps, but also you’ll find apps that have a poor quality, and somehow are useless for some devices.
Though the Android Market is not so popular as the App Store from iOS, be sure there are alot of very high quality apps. If you want to find only the best Android apps you can use an extensive app store.
