It seems like every company on the planet has its own app store these days, though some certainly fare better than others. Falling squarely into the some category is “Samsung Apps,” an app store Samsung launched in June 2010 that is accessible from various smartphones and connected televisions. Samsung on Thursday stated that its app store has now served over 100 million downloads globally less than one year after launch. Samsung Apps is showing no signs of slowing down, either. “We are anticipating that Samsung Apps will show a rapid growth in 2011,” the company said in a statement. In celebration of the 100 million-app milestone, anyone who downloads an app from Samsung Apps between March 25th and April 30th, 2011 will automatically be entered to win one of several prizes including Samsung Galaxy Tab tablets, Galaxy Players, UBS sticks and free app downloads from the Samsung Apps marketplace.
