App Store hits 15 billion downloads: more than 100,000 iPad apps, over 425,000 total

Apple has just announced that its App Store has handled 15 billion downloaded applications since it was launched nearly three years ago on July 10, 2008. It was back in January when the number hit 10 billion, and last month the same number stood at 14 billion. Taking into account that there are more than 200 million iOS devices across the globe, that works out to an impressive average of 75 applications downloaded per device.



Applications tailor-made for Apple's tablet, the iPad, stood at over 100,000, inconceivably more than the mere few hundreds of Honeycomb-optimized applications. The grand total now stands at over 425,000 applications, though, cementing the App Store's position as the richest application market.



But it wasn't just Cupertino benefiting from the growth – developers have been paid $2.5 billion to date. Makers of renowned apps like Infinity Blade and publishers bringing Martha Stewart and Sesame Street for the iPad also shared their enthusiasm over the growth of the platform.
