3 year old app store boasts massive numbers,


The Apple appstore may be ‘just’ three years old but in tech terms that’s eons. The latest numbers coming out of Jobs’ fortress reveal just how successful the app store has been in those three years.

15 billion app downloads in three years, a number that even the folks over at Google would agree is gargantuan. The app store also boasts a selection of 425,000 apps. Engadget is also reporting that Apple has also paid out $2.5 billion to App developers as a result of their sales. This is, of course, after Apple has deducted it’s 30% cut of course. Not that many developers have a problem with that seeing the success of the store.
