Some impressive App Store numbers:
- 40 billion downloads since launch.
- Almost 20 billion downloads in 2012 alone.
- More than 2 billion downloads in December 20102.
- More than 500 million active iTunes accounts associated with App Store.
- Developers have combined built more than 775,000 apps and been paid over 7 billion dollars.
Apple emphasizes that the 40 billion downloads are just as impressive as it sounds, as that number has also been cleansed from re-downloads and updates.
App Store was first launched in 2008 with 552 apps.
