App Store passes 15 Billion downloads

Wow it seems as if all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users do is download apps, earlier today Apple announced that 15 billion apps have been downloaded in the three years the App store has been open.

Some 200 million iOS users have downloaded an average of 75 apps to get that total, according to the Cupertino, Calif. company. The App Store now contains a total of 425,000 apps – 100,000 native iPad entries. Whats really interesting however is that 1 billion apps were downloaded in just the last month, by comparison, it took nine months for the first 1 billion apps to be downloaded.

Personally my iPhone currently holds more than 100 Apps how about yours?  Do you have more or less than 75 apps on your iPhone or iPad? Let us know.

It will be interesting to see what the 10 Billionth downloaded App was, and who the lucky winner is!

With all the hype around the different App stores you almost forget that the original iPhone came without the possibility of installing extra apps, it took a whole year before Apple finally launched the App Store.
