iPhone now has 100,000 apps

Over 18,000 games available.

Apple has announced that the App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch now has over 100,000 programs available for download, making it the "largest applications store in the world", the company claims.

According to Apptism (via Gamasutra), 18,554 of the applications are games.

Apple says it has distributed 2 billion applications since the store opened last year - an average of 20,000 downloads per application and over 4 million downloads a day.

As of this week, one of the 100,000 programs is the ads-free Eurogamer iPhone app. It's a lot quicker than Safari, supports comments, the forum and Eurogamer TV, and costs £2.39 from the App Store.
