Apple Store Has Surpassed 3 Billion Downloads
Apple has posted an official press release to inform that the App Store has surpassed 3 billion downloads in less than 18 months. This news is really exciting enough to impress Apple and even the whole industry.
“This is like nothing we’ve ever seen before,” said with emotion by Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, “The revolutionary App Store offers iPhone and iPod touch users an experience unlike anything else available on other mobile devices, and we see no signs of the competition catching up anytime soon.”
It is easy to find that the pace of downloads has grown exponentially. Apple announced on Apr. 23 that its store surpassed 1 billion downloads, close behind it reached 2 billion downloads on Sep. 28, and now, 3 billion. Following such an increase trend, a larger download volume may be released in the near future.
