Slide to Play just posted this article which I find very interesting. I can't believe there are so many apps in the app store! "App Store Now At 27,000 Apps, Lead By 6,000+ Games 44 minutes ago — by: Steve We recently wrote a piece about the dizzying rate at which new games appear on the App Store. Analytics platform Mobclix has the other piece of the puzzle--a rundown of exactly how many Apps and games we're looking at, in total. It's unreal. The total number of Apps now stands at a cool 27,000, with games making up just under a quarter of that total at 6,200 or so. Paid apps have seized control of the store from free apps--77% of downloads are paid. Also, puzzle games are dominating the Games section at 18% of the total number of games, followed by arcade games at 11.3%, and action games at 10.9%. The next two categories are a bit of a surprise: family games and kid games weigh in at 8.3% and 6.5%, respectively. This segment of iPhone gaming doesn't get as much attention as it should, apparently, and we're going to move to rectify that"
