Six years of App Store and 100 billion app downloads later, it's safe to say Apple made a game changer

Considering the App Store is just 6 years young, this 100 billion figure is impressive and quite mind-blowing. It is illustrative of how the iPhone's launch and the App Store that followed went on to change the world. Today, some of you can hardly imagine going about their daily life without their favorite apps. Apps are so ubiquitous nowadays, it's hard to remember the time when they were not around - and that time was not that long ago. Congratulations, Apple - the App Store is a game changer!

Over 60% of their income comes from iphone sales. Apple found the Holy Grail of consumerism. Before the iPhone era they had been broke mofos compared to the likes of M$, but now they're the richest IT company in the world. Damn...

Yeah, I'm switching from Apple tomorrow, just realized all the apps I ever had were to make fart sounds. I only bought an iPhone back in the day because android didn't have an App Store and my main requirement for a smartphone is to make fake farting sounds.

Absolutely a game changer I give credit where credit is due and Apple deserves the credit here. Congratulations to Apple. The app store was truly innovative ( Ironical I read that Steve Jobs was against the idea of an app store. However, one of the Apple execs who stood up to him and explain why it was a good idea that Steve eventually bowed to < he loved people who stood up to him and showed passion about their idea that they where willing to walk if he said no>).
