    Default Today Marks the App Store's Fifth Anniversary


    Wednesday marks the App Store’s fifth anniversary. The App Store was originally unveiled on July 10th, 2008, and five years later the App Store has exploded in popularity.

    Our own Michael Essany shared some interesting numbers about a week ago that display the App Store's explosion in popularity over the last five years:

    • On July 10th, 2008, Apple opened the iPhone App Store with a scant 500 apps.
    • The App Store is now populated by some 850,000 applications.
    • There are now 350,000 native iPad apps available on the App Store.
    • The App Store has generated more than 50 billion app downloads to date.

    Apple is celebrating the App Store’s fifth anniversary with a new banner in the App Store. When you tap on the banner, you are presented with a huge list of free applications and games, many of which are usually very high on the price scale.

    You can celebrate the App Store’s fifth anniversary today too by downloading all of those free applications while they’re still free!

    Only 10 apps/games. I was hoping for more than that. Especially if they made pages, numbers and keynote free.
