According to, an Android apps directory, the Android Market now offers more than 10 000 apps to users. The figure represents more than 100% growth for the apps market in just four months, although no official figures have been released by Google.

The other interesting figure is that approximately 64% of all apps in the Android Market are free. Seeing as we can only download free apps in South Africa on the market, at the moment, this is pretty good news. Coincidently, or otherwise, AndroLib's statistics reflect that approximately 64% of apps on the market have received "satisfactory" ratings by users. 

You can download the market for your HTC Android device on the Leaf website. The other good news is that more Android devices will soon be available in SA from manufacturers such as HTC, Motorola and Samsung.
