Users who visited Apple’s website today were greeted with a message that the iTunes app store has had over 15,000 apps and over 500 million downloads.
Incredible. Meanwhile, a competing App Store from BlackBerry has yet to launch, and Android’s app marketplace is trudging along in obscurity.
When Apple last revealed download figures about a month and a half ago, it said there had been over 300 million downloads from the app store, and it took Apple around 5 months to reach that point. It only took Apple 1.5 months to nearly double that figure.
