Google Google has confirmed on the official Android Developer Twitter account that the Android Market has surpassed the milestone of 100000 applications. In perspective, Steve Jobs said last week that the Apple App Store now contains over 300000 applications. Having said that, the Android Market has now arguably reached a point where the difference becomes almost immaterial in a practical sense, because even with only 100000 applications it is unlikely anyone will be short-changed for choice.

...i counted 'just' 32667 packages. That is packages! Not applications.

How you can have more than 100000 useful applications in an app-store is beyond me.
'Crapplets' is indeed a good way to explain that.
