Wow – 1.8 billion downloads coming from Apple’s App Store as reported by iPhone News.
Since the App Store launched in July 2008, that means every minute there has been more than 3000 downloads. Now that’s a lot of downloading!
And also just today, Mashable reported that the iPhone has reached 100,000 approved apps. However, as I tweeted about after reading the article, the 80/20 rule applies here.
80% of the approved apps will probably never reach more than a handful of iPhones, whereas 20% will be the dominant Apps in the marketplace.
Regardless, these are all impressive numbers that Apple is putting out regarding Apps, iPhones, iPods, and iTunes!
