If we crot the site 148Apps, Apple is about to pass the milestone of 500,000 valid applications on the App Store. on this occasion, the same source has drawn up a great infographic o we learn that the average price of an application is $ 3.64 (just over 2.50) while 37% of applications are free. If this milestone is crossed, that does not mean that the famous boutique, opened since July 2008, can boast of having such a full catalog. Indeed, it happens that the validation service of Apple withdraws applications ultimately deemed unsuitable. Other applications can also be removed directly by their developer. By doing the accounts, it is therefore estimated that the App Store today would include no less than 400,000 applications (356,000 for the iPhone and iPod touch and 95,000 for the iPad), which is however standard compared to the competition.
The infographic also reveals that it would cost no less than $ 891,982.24 (or ~ 633,000) to get all the applications available on the App Store. In addition, it would take a hard drive of… 7 traoctets to be able to store all these applications.
Unsurprisingly, we also learn that the best-selling application is Angry Birds, which held first place in the ranking of the App Store for 275 days in total.
Finally, it's a safe bet that Apple should take advantage of its next keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) to announce this milestone.
As a reminder, the App Store was launched in July 2008. At the end of 2009, the number of applications already crossed the 100,000 mark. Last January, Apple said that the milestone of 10 billion downloads had been crossed on the App Store.
We discuss it on the forum.
