2 Billion Apps Downloaded From the Apple App Store. Take that BLACKBERRY

iphone_3gsWhen it comes to big numbers, Apple is never shy. And they’ve got every reason to be proud about their App Store figures; before the iPhone, smartphone manufacturers cared little about third party applications; now, they’re a huge market.

Of course, those 2 billion apps don’t directly translate into revenue, as many of them are free, but the ratio of free to paid apps is now looking pretty good; for example, AdMob’s estimate is that 1 in every 4 downloaded apps on the iPhone has been paid for. Now take into account those blooming iPhone sales, and you’ll find that Apple, indeed, has a lot to be happy about.
