Apple App Store Turns One

Today marks the one year anniversary of the Apple App Store. In just one year, the store has gained enormous popularity with over 56,000 apps and more than one billion downloads. In April, the Mobclix website featured a breakdown of the number of apps in each of the 20 app categories. At that time, there were 4842 book apps and 2313 educations apps. Just since April, the number of book apps has increased to 7856 and the number of education apps to 3973. We can expect that the number of apps as well as the sophistication of these apps will continue to increase in the coming months.
