50 billion apps downloaded from the Apple App Store

Customers have downloaded more than 50 billion apps from the Apple App Store since the service launched in July 2008, according to a new announcement from the company. Current download rates have reached 2 billion mobile apps per month… or more than 800 apps every second.

Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services., said “Apple would like to thank our incredible customers and developers for topping 50 billion apps downloaded. The App Store completely transformed how people use their mobile devices and created a thriving app ecosystem that has paid out over nine billion dollars to developers. We’re absolutely floored to cross this milestone in less than five years.”

There are now more than 850,000 iPhone, iPad and iPod touch apps available in the Apple App Store.
