Apple's App Store is home to 700,000 apps; 90 percent of them are downloaded monthly
During Apple's iPhone 5 event Wedesnday, Tim Cook took the stage and kicked things off by talking about the wonderful retail experience that Apple provides in its stores. He noted that the company is now up to 380 retail stores across the globe and showed some fancy photos of the newest location in Barcelona.
And then Cook jumped into the stats for Apple's App Store. He called it the "most vibrant app ecosystem on the planet," and went on to give the following numbers:
700,000 apps in the App Store
250,000 tailored for the iPad
400 million iOS devices
On top of that, he noted that 90 percent of the 700,000 apps in the store are downloaded every single month (90 percent!), and that the average customer uses over 100 apps. One hundred. Seriously, how many do you have right now on your handset?
