Apple's iPad is picking up steam, in April 2010 when the original iPad was launched, there were only a few apps available. At the end of March this year, the the iPad App Store reaching the 75,000 apps milestone in less than 365 days.

Now, today is a special day for Apple's tablet which now counts more than a hundred thousand apps in the iPad App Store. In other words, 25,000 new iPad apps were added since then, averaging to about 280 new apps a day. Strange how Apple isn't making a big deal out of this milestone since the wealth and the breadth of apps are probably the biggest differentiators with Android.

Yet Apple and third-party developers have set a new record: in 453 days since the original iPad came out on April 3, 2010, the App Store has more than 100,000 iPad-exclusive apps available. Either specifically targeting the tablet, or released as universal updates to existing iPhone apps, at the moment of writing this there are 100,161 iPad apps in the Store, as the App Store app on the iPad shows.
