Apple joins the Guinness World Record Book

Given the 21 day wait for an iPad 2 one might think that the record may for sales.  Could be for their dominance of the tablet market?  No they have entered the record books for having the “most popular application marketplace” in the world.  Apple boasts more that 6.5 million downloads and 260,000 applications.  Apple also holds a spot in the 2011 Gamer’s Edition of the Guinness Book of World Records for the iPhone 4 which has been called the “Fastest-Selling Portable Gaming System.”

However, Apple should not get complacent because according to the recent numbers the Android App market is out-pacing the number of new apps being created for the Apple app store.  For the month of April Android added 28,000 apps while Apple added about 11,000 apps.
