Complex says: It seemed like everywhere you turned, someone was Shazaming a song or playing the year’s most downloaded game, Angry Birds, on their Android phone. Apple's App Store has over 300,000 apps and 7 billion downloads to date, making it the largest app store on the market. The Android Market gained steady ground as well by featuring over 175,000 apps and registering 2.2 billion downloads this year. With BlackBerry, Windows, and Nokia all joining the app-market soiree, 2011 looks to be a ridiculous year for apps.
