    Default Apple App Store Swells to New Heights



    There was a lot to absorb today from Apple's comprehensive press release heralding the arrival of iOS 4.2 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. From making the "Find My iPhone" feature free and able to use sans MobileMe, to countless new attributes for the iPad (like multitasking, folders, etc.) and the dawn of Game Center, AirPlay & AirPrint, Apple is keeping us on our toes today with no shortage of sweet arrivals for our iDevices.

    Understandably, there's a lot to be distracted with from Apple's iOS 4.2 drop today. One such example of a buried morsel of overlooked information is the fact that customers have now downloaded in excess of seven billion apps from the App Store. We've also officially breached the 300,000-level in terms of applications now available for download in 90 countries. Remarkable, of course, is that 40,000 of those apps are native to the iPad - a relatively astounding feat, given the short period of time the iPad and its corresponding app store have been available.

    Apple also took the opportunity to note that there are presently more than 125 million iOS users around the world who have the option of enjoying the aforementioned 300,000 apps, which are spread across a range of 20 categories (all of which we are familiar.) Impressive stuff, but the crowded app space through which we all navigate is about to get even more crowded. As the Mac-specific app store comes online, developers will have an entirely new platform to tinker with, lending credence to the claims of many analysts that the sum total of apps across all iDevices could range between 500,000 and 750,000 by the end of 2011.

    I'm surprised we haven't seen the 1000000 mark for apps.

    By next year also I think we will see Iphone and cloud computing come together..

    Well that's actually good news, because they weed out all the crappy apps ... I don't need to choose between 15 different "Lighter" or Flashlight Apps

    This guy is right on in respect to iPhones but Mac's are another story, still can't wait until the Mac AppStore gets here.

    And if there were 1,000,000 apps out there. Then about 900,000 of them are useless novelty crap. They sure don't mention how many apps i uninstall right after downloading them.

    Cloud computing?

    Microsoft uses that term "cloud" now. I guess Apple will have to call it "Stratosphere" or something.

    I've spent upward $1500 in the AppStore some great others good some ok ones and some that just plain lie about what it can do, that being said I've been downloading scenic late 07 and now around the corner 2011 I do my homework it's all about money so before you hit the buy button read what the people are saying about the app before you buy it and save yourself some money and headaches over wasting your cash on some junk app made for people that can but don't READ thanks.

    No apple needs to call it the Apple Galaxy. I can already see it apple saying store your intire iPhone iPad and coming with the next update (Lion) your MacBook / pro content in the ever growing Apple Galaxy. A thought what about mobile me, well in any case Apple or Die thanks.

    This feature is only free for 4th gen devices running iOS 4.2. You still have to pay for a MobileMe account for older devices like the iPhone 3Gs.

    you should patent the "Galaxy " term in relation to cloud type computing because it really has a good sound to it and I wouldn't put it past Apple if they have trolls on this board to come up with ideas...

    Ummm, no. It hasn't arrived. You aren't jailbreaking with any of those tools, as a 4.2 jailbreak isn't available.
    iPhone 4 to Android directly back to iPhone 4. I learned my lesson and will never leave iOS again.
