Amazon Appstore, 5500 Apps on April 16

Amazon Appstore, with 5,500 Apps on April 16, is seeing decent growth now and provides a good (curated) alternative to the much bigger Android Market.

The last check for apps was on April 6. The following chart shows the growth of Amazon’s Appstore within the first month (actually the first 26 days). Although the store started slow, lately, the growth rate has improved; it has been adding apps at an average of about 100 per day.

The top app continues to be Angry Birds Rio and is followed by Zenonia 2.
