Apple App Store Reaches 15 Billion Downloads

Apple recently announced that the App Store has generated 15 billion downloads since its launch in July 2008.

The App Store now offers more than 425,000 apps. 100,000 of which are created specifically for Apple’s tablet, the iPad.

Apple has paid developers more than $2.5 billion to date. Given Apple’s 30/70 revenue split with app developers, that means Apple itself has netted more than $1 billion directly from app sales.

In January 2010, the App Store surpassed 3 billion downloads, and in January 2011, Apple announced that the App Store surpassed 10 billion downloads. It took Apple’s App Store only six months to jump from 10 billion to 15 billion downloads.

Student at University Of Ottawa. Graduated from Vivian Fowler in 2009. BA HONOURS Major in Psychology(BA) and major in Criminology. I am writing about technology because it is an important factor in the world today and it is rapidly changing the world. Being part of a tech blog is a great opportunity for me because it is not something that people really concentrate on (Nigerians). I intend on informing people about what is going on in the tech world by providing first hand quality information. I will blog with a concentration on business, marketing, and legal matters. Believe it or not business makes the world go round as it is our major means of trading and making money. I hope to grow and mature while being part of Technesstivity in terms of expanding my knowledge about gadgets, solving everyday technological problems and technology in general.
