There’s a nify countdown on Apple’s homepage, as that golden figure draws ever nearer (and it’s going at quite a pace), so we present today this infographic detailing download history, market share and revenue generated to date. Who would have imagined this five years ago?

  1. Great Post! Most people definitely don’t realize the potential of the App Store!!!

    Apple began this most recent countdown just last week, promising a $10,000 App Store Gift Card to the person who downloads the 50 billionth app. Users downloading the first 50 apps after that will get a $500 App Store Gift Card.
