App Store passes 25 billion downloads

That’s about a million squillion

Product: App Store | Manufacturer: Apple
 
App Store iPhone, thumbnail 1
The App Store zipped past the 25 billion download mark today, earning one (as yet unannounced) downloader a cool $10,000 in iTunes vouchers in the process.

The milestone was reached in the early evening (GMT) on Sunday, meaning that it took just 3 years, 7 months, and 23 days to reach the target.

Top of the world

When the App Store first launched back in the summer of 2008, few could have predicted that it would become such a large and, in many cases, disruptive industry to established distribution services.

The App Store launched alongside the release of the iPhone 3G and 2.0.1 of iOS, with only a handful of apps to choose from.

Now the App Store officially hosts over 500,000 different apps.
