Apple Apps downloaded at 70 per second

On April 24th, Apple announced that customers had downloaded more than one billion iPhone and iPod touch applications from its App store. Today, less than three months after announcing the billionth download, Apple said it had reached the 1.5 billion download mark.

In less than 12 weeks, Apple customers have downloaded 500,000,000 applications which translates into almost 42 million per week, 6 million per day, 250,000 per hour or just under 70 apps per second!

In addition to massive downloads, the number of programs on the App store continues to swell. On April 24th, Apple reported having 35,000 programs for sale. By July 14th, that number had grown to 65,000.
