    A new banner has appeared on the Apple homepage in the last 48 hours that boasts that there are now currently 15,000+ apps on the App Store, and that they have reached the incredible milestone of 500 Million downloads.
    Considering that the App Store only opened 6 months ago it is an amazing achievement. Apple’s last milestone announcement came on December 5th 2008, which stated that they had exceeded 10,000 apps and 300 Million downloads. This shows a massive increase in apps and downloads in comparison to previous announcements.
    Suprisingly over the holiday period iFart mobile increased sales threefold, and on christmas day alone made over $27,000 after apples cut, so it just shows that its not just the really useful apps that are getting hammered its also the ones that stink…

    This happens because the iPhone is such a cool phone to have, and because the apps are really, really good. Apple has great customer service, and if things were different, it wouldn't have worked like that at all.

    It is just amazing to see how big of a business the Iphone it really is. It is not only the manufacturers of the phone but also all those companies that make all the cool Iphone applications.
