Apple's iPad crosses 100,000 app mark

Apple’s App Store now has more than 100,000 iPad exclusive or optimized apps

When Apple first launched the iPad back in 2010, one of the biggest knocks on the tablet was its lack of native apps and its similarity to the iPhone. However, after taking the lion’s share of web usage in a recent study, the iPad is once again showing just how much of a success it has been.

As noted by, the iPad has managed to break the 100,000 app mark. The 100,161 apps counted are applications that are either iPad exclusive or versions of older apps that have been optimized for the iPad. Surprisingly, it only took developers 453 days to reach the milestone, at a pace of ~220 apps per day

Once again, we are reminded of the fact that Apple’s iPad dominates everybody else the tablet arena. However, even with 100,000 iPad apps available, we’ll never cease to be amazed by the lack of a native Facebook application for the device.
