The App Store is already well over 200,000 applications present, but the vast majority of them are primarily focused on the iPhone and iPod touch. It was to be expected that with the arrival of the iPad we would start to see an explosion of applications designed especially for the tablet, and this seems to be coming true: A little over two months after its launch the iPad already has over ten thousand native applications through the App Store .
The numbers are singing: in just six weeks, the number of native iPad applications has doubled, which is perfect given the huge sales the device is experiencing.
What has also been detected recently is an increase in the waiting time for approval of an iPad application . It seems that Apple is concentrating its efforts so that as soon as the iOS 4 is released together with the iPhone 4 we have a good repertoire of ready-made applications available, so that momentarily the iPad focused applications will take a little longer to be approved.
Hopefully, this situation will be reversed when the iOS 4 is released for the iPad, which will happen this fall and will allow for multitasking, application folders and the other features we’ve already seen live inside the iPhone 4 on its big brother.
