Samsung says that they have reached 1000 TV Apps on their Smart TVs – but these also include local apps. The most popular apps are YouTube, Maps, Accuweather, Vimeo and vTuner – not really a surprise, because these are all pre-installed.

Samsung also reports that they reached the 10 million downloads mark in September and they expect to react 11 million before the end of October. Samsung reached 5 million in May. The other manufacturers have not announced any numbers but looking at their Smart TV platforms it is clear that they still ahve some catching-up to do.
