Apple: App Store reaches 1 million apps, 1 billion songs already played on iTunes Radio During their annual iPad event, Apple took time to mention some milestones the company has hit.
The iOS App Store has reached 1 million apps, up from 900,000 in June, as almost exponential growth continues. Over 60 billion total apps have been downloaded, as well, up 10 billion from a similar announcement in May.

By comparison, Google's Android Play Store also has 1 million apps and reached the 60 billion plateau a few short months ago.

CEO Tim Cook says these downloads have led to $13 billion being paid out to developers since launch.

Finally, the exec noted that the new iTunes Radio has been a hit, with over 20 million users trying it out and playing over 1 billion song.
