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…

Tap Mag is a UK-based, iPad-published magazine about apps, and if you like both iOS and magazines, then you should really be reading it – unlike most Newsstand mags, Tap actually makes full use of the iPad’s capabilities: no afterthought PDF shovelware here.

The chart puts together a bunch of fun facts. Did you know, for instance, that Apple earns about $1,000 per minute from the App Store? Or that the $5.5 billion Apple has paid out to developers so far would fill 2.5 olympic swimming pools if counted out in dollar bills.

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