Apple's App Store hits 45 billion downloads, $9 billion paid to developers
Apple said that the App Store has hit the 45 billion download mark, which means there were about 5 billion downloads in the last quarter. Assuming that pace keeps up, we will probably be seeing the 50 billion extravaganza in late June/early July (we'd expect some sort of giveaway contest by Apple). Tim Cook also said that to date, Apple has paid $9 billion to developers, and maybe more impressively, the company is now on pace to pay developers $1 billion per quarter for the apps and in-app items sold on iOS.
Lastly, Cook talked up iCloud a bit saying that the service has added 50 million users in the last quarter, putting it at 300 million total users. Not a bad roundup of numbers, it's just a shame that we may not see any new products until the fall.
