I agree, which is why I said that the problem isn't number of apps, but number of quality apps. On my iOS device, I have about 110 apps and 100 on my Android (thats out of 100s of thousands of apps, the majority of which are useless). In order for me to view the app experience on BlackBerry as a success, they would honestly need maybe the 200 top apps on Android and iOS, and if even the top 25 of the ones I use are there, I'll be more than happy (actually, I doubt I even use 25 of my apps on a weekly basis...maybe 10-15?).

Yelp (check), Youtube (check? and I hope it allows signing in, comments, and the personalized feed feature), Instagram, 500px, Amazon, IMDB, LivingSocial (which even Android doesn't have. Anybody that has used that Android app will understand what I mean), Mint, Meetup, Paypal, Pinterest, Temple Run (& TR 2), Tripadvisor, Tumblr.
That was just me looking through my Android to see what apps I'd want, and that makes it obvious that most of the major ones are actually already on BB. 13 More that I'd like to see, and I'd be extremely satisfied if even 5-10 of those were there. Realistically, other users might add a few more apps, but not having any of the hundreds of thousands of other apps on iOS/Android would be a slight inconvenience at best, for most users.
