Apple is about to mark the one-billionth iPhone
app download should put any potential skepticism to rest. Apple estimates that over 929-million apps have been downloaded since the App Store first launched less than a year ago, on July 10, 2008. This means that from the beginning of the App Store's launch until now, an average of about
3.39-million apps per day have been downloaded; but as app downloads have been steadily increasing over time, the actual number of apps being downloaded now is at an even far-greater pace than that--which is estimated at over 5.1 million app downloads per day.
Regardless of your perspective of the App store, the numbers don't lie and
they're pretty amazing actually."
The time spent on any item of the agenda [of a finance committee] will be
in inverse proportion to the sum involved.
