Make it 1 Million. The Number of Apps to ever See Life in Apple’s App Store

Here’s an interesting App Store statistic that takes just a bit of explanation to drive home the point… While the number of apps currently available for download from the App Store sits at about 736,000, Appsfire is letting everyone know that as of today, Apple has approved a total of 1,000,000 applications submitted by developers.

Basically, this pseudo-milestone means that at one point or another, 1M apps have seen life in the App Store, whether paid or free and for iPhone or iPad. It seems somehow telling to note that more than 250K have since been removed from the store, probably because of copyright issues or just by the developer’s choice. While that may be a substantial drop-off rate, what’s more substantial is how quickly the App Store has ushered in 1M apps, with the store having been founded in 2008.

The App Store’s numbers have always been impressive, but lately you can’t call them unequaled. After all, it was just earlier this month that Google Play crossed over 700,000 apps available for download, putting it very much in competition with the App Store—though the overall quality in these unique stores is up for debate.

So it’s a noteworthy day for the App Store, but we’re not expecting any acknowledgment on Apple’s behalf. For that, we’ll have to wait till one can cruise to the App Store and find all 1,000,000 apps ready for download.
