During the Android event in San Francisco, Sundar Pichai (VP of Android and Chrome) not only announced the latest Android version, and the new Nexus 7 tablet, but also marked the occasion as a celebration.

According to him, Google Play is officially number one as the largest app store, with 1 million apps. Apple’s App Store has about 900,000 applications, and is now occupying second place.

Mr. Pichai also informed us that Google Play Store developers have managed to increase their revenue 2.5 times in the last twelve months, which is not surprising considering the 50 billion app downloads milestone which was crossed recently.

So, for now Google Play holds the largest collection of digital books, millions of songs and thousands of TV shows, and it can only get better from August, when the repository will be getting a new Textbook category.
