Just dropped by the iPhone AppStore to see if any new health & wellness applications have been added to the site since the post I did on July 23rd.
Imagine my surprise in seeing some 64 separate iPhone apps – a doubling of the number of apps in 2 short weeks.
Now the question is: Will we see continued exponential growth and if so, for how long? Or will it quickly plateau once it reaches a critical mass of the main apps consumers seek?
One thing is for sure, if it continues at this rate, Apple will have to re-categorize apps to make them easier to find and select.
The coolest app I saw today BTW was Stride, an app that leverages the accelerometers in the iPhone (they are mainly used for gaming) to turn the iPhone into a pedometer. Slick
