Google Play catching up with App Store with 25 Billion app downloads and 650,000 apps available to download

Google Android have just come up with some happy news for them and Android users. Google Play announced on their official Android blog that they have accomplished a few remarkable achievements with their App Store. According to Google:
  • There are 675,000 apps on Google Play
  • 25 Billion apps downloaded
These numbers are as I said quite remarkable as during the iOS 6 keynote Tim Cooks announced that the App Store has 30 Billion downloads and 750,000 apps. Apple are winning but Google are getting there.

Beliw is what Google posted on their Android blog:
Every day you’ll be able to choose from a collection of apps from some of the world’s top developers including Gameloft, Electronic Arts, Rovio, runtastic, Full Fat and more. And all for just 25 cents. We’ll also be offering some special collections like 25 movies you must own, 25 banned books, 25 albums that changed the world and our 25 top selling magazines, all at special prices. Visit Google Play a little later today to check them out.

Twenty-five billion is more than twice the distance, in miles, that the Voyager 1 spacecraft has travelled since its launch 35 years ago. It’s the amount of time, in minutes, that have passed since some of our earliest ancestors began to set foot in Europe. And now, thanks to all of you, it’s a Google Play milestone. We look forward to the next 25 billion.
So do you think Apple is now at danger, especially if you consider the fail of their Maps app?
