iOS Apps Reaches 500K; Angry Birds, the Most Popular Paid App of All Times

Apple, together with its developers and fans, has another reason to celebrate for yet another milestone achieved in iTunes App Store.
From its launch back in July 10, 2008 – the latest infographic shows that the number of approved apps in iTunes App Store reaches 500,000, based on collaborative effort from app search engine Chomp, app review site 148apps, and game publisher Chillingo.

The latest number of approved apps came from 85,569 unique developers. 37% of all apps are free and the average price for paid apps is $3.64. Angry Birds is still the most popular paid application of all times based on number of days at number 1 in iTunes App Store.

While Apple reaches the new milestone, its competitors are still trailing in stats. Just recently, Apple’s stronger competitor, Google, announced that the Android Market had reached more than 200,000 apps. Other App Stores in the competition haven’t reached the 50,000 mark except for Nokia’s Ovi Store.
