Apple App Store Now Carries 650,000 Apps with 30 Billion Already DownloadedBy: Shawn Hess - June 11, 2012
Apple CEO Tim Cook just announced an amazing milestone for the company at today’s (June 11th – 15th) Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2012) in San Francisco. The news is, the app store now has over 650,000 apps available and there has already been 30 billion downloads. Very impressive!
Of course, well over 200,000 of those apps are specifically designed for the iPad. The popularity of the App Store has already reach 120 countries and there are 35 more about to be added by the end of June. But lets not forget that all these apps come at a price to Apple as well as consumer.
Apple has forked over $5 billion to app developers to make these record numbers a reality. I would say that’s a monumental investment. Check back all day for more coverage of the WWDC 2012 events. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the conference all week. Feel free to head to the App Store to drive those numbers higher.
