App Store exceeds 100M

iPhone and iPod touch users have already downloaded over 100 million apps from the iTunes App Store, which has reached the milestone in its first two months of existence, according to Apple. The store is said to have amassed over 3,000 individual titles, with only 10 percent exceeding $10 in cost, and more than 600 being distributed for free.

The rate at which the App Store has grown is claimed by Apple to have surprised developers. SmugMug co-founder Chris MacAskill has seen a 300 percent increase (over all other software sales) in applications purchased from the App Store. "We've been able to do things with our iPhone app that we just couldn't have dreamed of doing on any other mobile platform, so these are revolutionary times for us and for iPhone and iPod touch users," he says.
