The App Store as a metric for success.

John Gruber has a great post up on Daring Fireball that really addresses the misconception of “more apps = better”. It’s something I’ve been thinking about too, and talking about with others, as discovery becomes more of a problem with the voluminous amount of software within the store. Until search improves, and the browsing method changes, bragging about having multiple thousands of applications really only helps people who don’t already have iPhones make the decision to buy them. Once you’ve got one, the challenge becomes separating the wheat from the chaff.
