Apple’s App Store has just hit 40 billion downloads, picking up the pace in the last year when 20 billion, or a half of all happened. And December alone broke the records contributing a whopping 2 billion downloads.

With now 775,000 apps overall and 300,000 optimized for the iPad, The trend is definitely upwards and positive for what’s considered the first true app catalog.

"It has been an incredible year for the iOS developer community. Developers have made over seven billion dollars on the App Store, and we continue to invest in providing them with the best ecosystem so they can create the most innovative apps in the world," Apple’s senior VP of Internet Software and Services, Eddy Cue, said.

The App Store is available in 155 countries. Apple’s closest rival in the app space is Google with its Play store, and the two should be going neck in neck.
