What will more app stores mean?

It is probably fair to say that the whole app store concept from apple has been a big winner, especially as everyone else is jumping in or making noises at the least.

So, what will it mean for mobile music apps? Will we see the same kind of developer activity as in the app store as with Apple? Will there suddenly be loads of Windows Mobile music apps again, and Palm (webOS) too, if that’s possible?

Will the developers who are currently writing code for the iPhone branch out and port apps to new platforms, or write different apps?

It’d be interesting to know if any developers had given it any thought?

What have you stopped?

I think it is fair to say that there’s been a bit of an explosion in the number of music apps available for the iPhone and iPod Touch platform. I would estimate that the number of music making apps of varying type dwarf those on both the Palm OS and Windows Mobile put together, even though the market is less than a year old.

So, since the launch of the app store, what have you discarded? Which apps, good and innovative at the time, have fallen off you device or simply out of use completely.

For me I started off with the Moo Cow apps as they came out, but find now that I don’t use them at all and have removed them from my iPhone now.

How about you?
