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."
