Appsfire, a company that specializes in user acquisition for iPhone and iPad apps, tweeted today that the App Store has hit 950,000 apps, according to its tracking system.
That number may be driven in part by developers moving to submit new apps to take advantage of iOS 7. Since the App Store hit 900,000 apps in mid-July, it may take around two months until we see a developer submit the millionth app, if the pace of submission keeps up. Of course, only time will tell.
Once Apple hits a million apps, though, it will be a bit late to the party. Google announced that Android had hit the million app mark at an event in July.
