Success is just an App download away.
There is no doubt that Apple Inc., is America’s greatest stimulus package and top seller of technology including apps that have been downloaded 100 million times from the Mac Store.
This morning December 12, 2011 Apple made an announcement on the statistics:
There are 500,000 Applications available in mobile market alone
Over 100 million apps have been downloaded in less that one year’s history.
This means that app developers who designed functional useful apps have made a killing through Apple’s technology and more is coming soon.
At the beginning of this year, specifically January 6, 2011 there were only 1,000 or so software apps available online. Today, there are 10 times that amount of live apps on the Mac Store network.
Here are some excerpts from the Apple Press Release from Cupertino, California, Apple’s headquarters:
CUPERTINO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apple® today announced that over 100 million apps have been downloaded from the Mac® App Store™ in less than one year. With thousands of free and paid apps, the Mac App Store brings the App Store experience to the Mac so you can find great new apps, buy them using your iTunes® account, and download and install them in just one step. Apple revolutionized the app industry with the App Store, which now has more than 500,000 apps and where customers have downloaded more than 18 billion apps and continue to download more than 1 billion apps per month.
“In just three years the App Store changed how people get mobile apps, and now the Mac App Store is changing the traditional PC software industry,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With more than 100 million downloads in less than a year, the Mac App Store is the largest and fastest growing PC software store in the world.”

“Mac developers set the prices for their apps, keep 70 percent of the sales revenue, are not charged for free apps and do not have to pay hosting, marketing or credit card fees. To find out more about developing for the Mac App Store visit, developer.apple.com/programs/mac.”
Through Apple’s generous profit split, some app developers have become millionaires overnight and cashed in on the shared business revenue that Apple as a leader in technology has created.
Enterprising computer geeks have helped Apple generate even more revenue this year than ever before.
