The AppBrain low quality app detection filter detects automatically which apps are unlikely to be useful ("low quality apps"). Google seems to remove apps from the market roughly once a quarter, in which case the total number of available Android apps goes down. The removed apps are almost always classified by our system as low quality apps.
