Android 3.0 has just 50 native apps

Posted on Thursday, March 31 2011 @ 21:54:20 CEST by

ARS Technica reports Google's Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" operating system has only about 50 native apps, and that's including apps which have been resized to take advantage of the tablet's larger screen. Appetite among developers seems very lackluster, considering that Apple's iPad had 1,000 native apps available on launch day.
One month after its launch, the Xoom currently has about 50 native apps available for Android 3.0 Honeycomb, Google’s version of Android optimized for tablets. That’s pitiful compared with the iPad, which was released last year with approximately 1,000 native apps on launch day. The Xoom debuted with a paltry 15 Honeycomb-native apps available for download in its catalog.

50 apps is a pretty small number, and the actual total may be even smaller. The official Android online market, as well as other online message forums for Android enthusiasts, place the number of Xoom apps somewhere close to 50. But this number hardly seems accurate, as it includes existing Android applications which have been resized to take advantage of the tablet’s larger screen. The number of apps with interfaces made specifically for the tablet is probably diminutive.
