    Default Apple Gearing Up for App Store's 5th Birthday


    The App Store is about to turn 5 years old.

    One week from today, Apple will celebrate a milestone birthday for its app storefront that has effectively shaped the entire digital landscape to an unprecedented degree.

    To commemorate the landmark accomplishments recorded over the last five years, Apple has reportedly begun sharing a promotional poster with select reporters as they plan to cover next Wednesday's App Store launch anniversary.

    Tim Bradshaw of the Financial Times is among the few who have received the poster from Apple, which touches on the remarkable growth logged since that time. The milestone achievements include:

    • 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.

    Bradshaw shared an image of the promotional poster from Apple on his website today. You can check it out here.
