iPhone Hits 10,000 App Milestone; 50,000 Apps Next Year

Nov 30th, 2008 | By | Category: iPhone

iPhone application review site 148Apps reports that Apple’s App Store has hit a milestone, now offering more than 10,000 iPhone apps. 

Other interesting facts:

  • Most iPhone apps sell for less than $2.00
  • Games and Entertainment are the most popular categories for iPhone apps
  • If you purchased every iPhone app, it would cost you over $31,000.

10,000 apps for a mobile phone is pretty amazing, but what’s just as amazing is that, with just a slight growth in the number of apps approved per month, the iPhone could have 50,000 apps within a year.

    10,000 pretty much guarantees that there are thousands of rather useless applications.

    I think what’s even more impressive than the quantity is the quality: There are dozens of REALLY helpful applications selling for a few bucks and making the iPhone even more useful. Congrats on that!
