Distimo, an analytics company that focuses on the apps market, has just released a report on the Apple App Store since the release of the iPad. The report (which you can download here) shows that eBooks are the 3rd most popular category of iPad app, with 396 titles in the app store as of Friday.

Games apps lead the pack with 1,577 apps, followed by entertainment apps, with 455 apps; then there’s the above-mentioned books category. Distimo reports that there are now 4,870 iPad apps, and that the number of iPad apps grew by 32.7 percent in just the last two weeks.
