Infographic Shows Just How Huge The App Store Has Gotten

A week!

How long would it take you just to read the names of all the apps in the iOS App Store? According to an infographic (what we old timers used to call a “chart” or “poster”) by Tap Mag, this simple task would take you a whole week. And that’s far from all…

There’s more, but that’s what the chart is for. Check it out.
