It’s official, Apple’s app store just hit 50 billion downloads. This comes within the hour of Android announcing it’s had 48 billion downloads. One lucky person will get there hands on a $10,000 iTunes voucher out of this as well which is rather nice.
Take note however that it’s only taken less then 4 weeks for Apple to get from 45 billion downloads to 50 billion. Those are some alarming numbers and really make you have to question just how much further can Apple and it’s third party developers take the platform.
Apple will be holding it’s WWDC conference in San Francisco on June 10th – 14th. Some are saying that this year will make or break Apple. Only time will tell but for now, they surely have something to smile about.
