    Haven't seen a mention of this but from about 553 apps on Thursday, the count went up to about 660 on Friday and now looks like 713 (going by the "All iPhone App list" in iTunes).

    I took note of this when my drawing app, "No.2", was added yesterday. Anyone know what's new today? Anyone notice any changes in the front page of the store ("New" apps, "What's Hot", etc.)? Looks the same as Thursday to me... hope they start rotating these!

    Edit: continuing US Store count - 718 on July 13th, 790 on July 14th.

    Yeah I think the New, Whats hot, etc. have been static but the Top 100 Paid/Free have been updated a couple times per day (mine is in the top 100 Paid :D )

    To see what's new, sort apps by Release Date.

    By release date there are only 9 new apps today, but by the count there are about 50.

    I found some new good ones today. I like the concept of LiveSportz better than SportsTap, but the implementation is much worse, for now. The latter is hard to navigate and has many sports I don't want, but the former often doesn't load and is horribly slow when it does.

    Also, lots of updates to "old" apps. I think I had 5 updates today.

    It looks like many of the apps are eBooks. Looks like those are really going to clutter up the Entertainment section.

    I think Apple needs to create an eBook section.

    I could be wrong, but I think Apple will create sections as they decide they are needed. If the existing categories are all we have in a year, with say 10,000 applications we're going to be in trouble. :eek:

    Where exactly can I find that list of all apps? I found the links "All iPhone apps" and "All iPod Touch apps" in the left column of the App Store homepage on iTunes. Or is this something that I can only see on the mobile AppStore?

    All iPhone Apps is the complete list. You can sort it by release date to find the newest. But there are 34 'pages' of apps, 21 apps to a page (the last page is one app shy of being full)...that makes 713 apps.

    ...plus a bunch of Apps that are not released in the US. Browsing through the Japanese store I've already seen several of those.

    Since developers choose the categories, popular categories could still get cluttered... they eventually need more subcategories (like they have in games), a way for users to complain about misplaced apps, and more ways to search and filter results. I'm pretty sure Apple has plans to expand the store in these and other ways but they are waiting for the store to fill out a bit first so there aren't any empty sub categories.

    I definitely agree they have to do something about those eBooks.

    UK store also has 34 pages, albeit a slightly different collection due to regional differences.

    I see 9 released today, 10 yesterday.

    Here's my solution: eBooks are not applications...they are content.

    Build an eBook reader and let people buy/download the "books" once they have the app.

    Selling individual ebooks as applications makes little sense to me.

    All the books listed are for free in the Public Domain but not many people know about this. They are currently not formated for the iphone but this will change, already Fictionwise has a iphone cat on their website. People are doing this for the money. They pull the PD book, reformat and sell it on itunes. A buck for their time to make it pretty. Capitalism at its best. They couldn't get people to buy them on their own website.

    Instead of an Ebook section they need a ripoff section.

    99 cents for public domain books.

    99 cents for flashlight apps.

    Someone in another thread was asking how to create a blank icon on the home screen. I am going to create a blank icon app and sell it for 99 cents.

    And the US store flies up to 718 apps on July 13th. Much bigger drop off than I expected. Hope it picks up tomorrow!

    I would guess that many more apps are added during the weeks than the weekends.

    Hopefully mine is accepted tomorrow...

    Bigger jump today. US Store is up to 790 apps. I still don't see any change in the apps listed on the front page (except for the "Top" lists on the right side). Only 14 apps describe themselves as being released today though (July 14th)... so the release dates are still inaccurate.

    I really wish Apple would create an RSS feed for new apps.

    ....or someone could create a thread (and make it sticky) listing Apps as added (with link of course).
