App Store Hits 500,000 Apps

Apple is likely to announce at next month’s WWDC event the passing of the 500,000 mark for apps in the App Store.

The 500,000 figure was compiled by 148Apps, Chomp, and EA’s game publisher Chillingo. The trio posted the below infographic to a Facebook page that details some interesting statistics about the milestone.

Games (15%), Books (14%), Entertainment (11%) and Education (8%) make up for nearly a half of the half million apps on the App Store with 37% of the total apps made available for free.

Angry Birds is the most popular app  ever. While Apple don’t release any official figures about how many times an app is downloaded, the below ranking chart is based on the number of days the apps stayed at #1 in the chart.

It is also predicted that the app store hit more than 15 billion apps solid in Jan 27th, 2011. We will have to wait until the WWDC event before hearing official confirmation from Apple about these figures.

    If these numbers are accurate, then it suggests that the paid apps have generated about $34.3 billion dollars in revenue, i.e. 63% of 15 billion downloads as paid apps times average price of $3.64. Amazing when you think this market never even existed 4 years ago… These revenue numbers alone are worthy of a headline story…
