It’s a wonder iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users have time for anything but click on the App Store icon. Apple announced Thursday 15 billion apps have been downloaded in the three years the iTunes 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. More intriguing is this factoid: 1 billion apps were downloaded in just the last month.
In June, the tech giant announced App Store users had downloaded 14 billion apps since the iTunes store opened. By comparison, it took nine months for the first 1 billion apps to be downloaded.
Although we’re not sure how many of the 15 billion apps downloaded were free, Apple did say this morning it has paid $2.5 billion to developers so far.
