App Store passes 300 million download milestone


Apple has quietly revealed that the App Store users have now downloaded more than 300 million applications, having passed the 200 million download mark only six weeks earlier. The announcement came in the form of an advertisement run in today’s New York Times, in which Apple touted the more than 10,000 applications now available in the App Store, from games to business programs. The App Store officially launched on July 11 alongside the iPhone 3G and iPhone OS 2.0.

I didn’t realize you could “quietly reveal” anything by taking out an ad in the New York Times.

Too bad 299.99 million of those are crappy applications. I’ll be more impressed when they offer the Copy/Paste, double tap/click, and haptic feedback on the iPhone (all software fixes!)
