New Android Apps story updated with five new apps.
NEW YORK (
TheStreet) -- While
(AAPL - Get Report) App Store still boasts more than three times as many apps as
(GOOG - Get Report) Android Market, this disparity may not exist for long.
Overall, there are more than 300,000 Android apps, compared to
Apple's 500,000 iOS offerings. But the number of Android apps has more than doubled since last August and should outnumber programs for Apple's iOS devices by mid-2012, according to mobile app security company Lookout Mobile Security.
As app developers continue to create programs for Android, new apps are launched every day, and old favorites are continually updated. Here are 35 of them.
Zaarly is a new service that lets you bid on services and items. Let's say, for example, you're busy at work and need someone to pick up your dry cleaning and lunch for you.
Once you're registered on the site, type up a short description of the task you'd like to get done and the amount you're willing to pay for the service. Then list the how quickly you'll need for it to get done (from 1 hour to 1 week). Other Zaarly users can then browse the site and send bids to you if they're interested in fulfilling your request.
We browsed the Zaarly board for nearby listings and saw a user looking for someone to play Santa Claus at a office Christmas party, someone searching for New York Giants tickets and another person requesting Christian Louboutin heels in a size 8.
We asked for someone to pick up McDonalds for us and got a response from a Zaarly user in under five minutes.
