WWDC 2012: Apple App store reaches 30bn downloads
Apple’s App Store now has over 650k apps, with the firm’s CEO Tim Cook making the announcement at the annual World Wide Developer’s conference
We always knew the App Store was filled to the brim with apps, but we never expected this: Apple’s App Store now has over 650k listed apps, with 225k of them being made specially for the iPad, while 4m people have signed up for accounts, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook.
And that's not all! With the economy feeling a bit worse for wear recently, Apple can sit back and relax with the knowledge that over $5bn has been paid out to app developers, thanks to the huge popularity.
"It's becoming an economy in and of itself," Cook added.
