Since the Android Market is the closest in number of apps available to Apple's App Store, the current numbers leader, people have been following Android's number of apps closely and speculating if and when Android will surpass iOS.  Today Android took one step closer to that goal, as the Market has reached 100,000 apps submitted.  This news comes courtesy of AndroLib, an unofficial site that counts apps in the Market and in other markets, as well.  The number of actual, active apps is a little lower, at 83,000.

It's true that 83,000 apps is an impressive number, but there have been some complaints that there is a lack of quality apps available to Android users.  Another thing to remember is that these numbers are still unofficial, as Google doesn't often come out with official numbers.  However, when the Market does end up hitting 100,000 apps, which should happen soon at the rate the Market has been growing, I'm sure the big G will have something to say about it.  In honor of this news, what are some of you favorite apps, Android fans?
