Native iPad apps top 100,000 mark

Still dwarfed by number of iPhone, iPod apps

The number of native iPad apps has surpassed the 100,000 mark, a check of the App Store app for the tablet reveals. Apple tends not to publish regular App Store metrics, only updating during press events and quarterly results calls, or else when the store as a whole reaches major milestones. The last official tally of iPad apps came during WWDC 2011 in early June, when Apple remarked that 90,000 titles were available.

Native iPad apps continue to represent just a fraction of App Store content. There are more than 418,000 entries overall, pointing to an overwhelming margin of iPhone/iPod-only apps. Many iPad apps are furthermore "universal" titles, designed to work on all three platforms and not necessarily optimized for the iPad beyond graphics and layout. Dedicated iPad apps can require Mac-like scales of development and frequently cost more to the public.
