App Store hits 3 billion downloads Apple has said today that the App Store has reached a new milestone, 3 billion downloads, just 3 months after hitting 2 billion.
"Three billion applications downloaded in less than 18 months -- this is like nothing we've ever seen before," added CEO Steve Jobs. "The revolutionary App Store offers iPhone and iPod touch users an experience unlike anything else available on other mobile devices, and we see no signs of the competition catching up anytime soon."

From April to July, Apple was seeing about 6.9 million downloads per day from the App Store, but since September, that number has jumped to 10.1 million. Apple has over 100,000 applications available through the store. The much newer Android Market and Palm App Catalog have about 18,000 and 1,000, respectively.
