“CUPERTINO, California―May 16, 2013―Apple today announced that customers have downloaded over 50 billion apps from the revolutionary App Store. Customers are downloading more than 800 apps per second at a rate of over two billion apps per month on the App Store. The 50 billionth app was Say the Same Thing by Space Inch, LLC, which was downloaded by Brandon Ashmore from Mentor, Ohio who received a $10,000 App Store Gift Card to commemorate this historic milestone.
“Apple would like to thank our incredible customers and developers for topping 50 billion apps downloaded,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “The App Store completely transformed how people use their mobile devices and created a thriving app ecosystem that has paid out over nine billion dollars to developers. We’re absolutely floored to cross this milestone in less than five years.”
The App Store opened in July 2008 with 500 apps. Since its introduction, Apple’s incredible developer community has created an app for doing almost everything imaginable on an iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
“We were blown away with our success on the App Store back in 2008,” said Rich Riley, CEO of Shazam. “And almost five years later we continue to be amazed with how much people love using Shazam on their iPhone or iPad. With the App Store, we can effortlessly provide users with updates that give them great new features while making it easy for new users to discover and download Shazam for themselves.”
“We started our company in 2008 as three friends focused on creating great educational apps for our children,” said Caroline Hu Flexer, co-founder of Duck Duck Moose. “The App Store brought ‘Wheels on the Bus’ to the world in a big way. Sixteen apps later, a fan base of millions of parents, children and educators and a growing company with 20 full-time employees, we couldn’t be happier with our success.”
“The App Store has been integral in getting us into the hands of millions of iOS users and has transformed our business,” said Elizabeth Francis, Chief Marketing Officer of Gilt.com. “Our apps allow our members to access their favorite sales on Gilt every day, anytime, anywhere. App Store customers have proven to be a loyal shopper base and have been influential in making Gilt the globally recognized brand it is today.”

iPhone targeted by advertisers.
Advertisers spend three times as much targeting Apple devices as Android ones, according to a new study — a stat even the most devoted iPhone users wouldn’t brag about.
The iPhone monthly ad share grew 12% in the first quarter of this year and now accounts for more than 50% of mobile ad spending, according to the report released Thursday by MoPub, a mobile ad exchange that allows app publishers and advertisers to engage in bidding for advertisements. As a result, the cost-per-thousand views is 40% higher on iOS than Google’s Android.
Why are Apple users bombarded with more ads than those who own rival devices are? Experts say the user base is considered a more upwardly mobile demographic. “Apple has more desirable customers,” says Sarah Rotman Epps, senior analyst at Forrester Research. Cheaper Android phones reach more people than the iPhone, she says, but around 15% of Samsung smartphone customers get free Android smartphones that come with wireless contracts. “These accidental customers are in the lower third of income earners in the U.S.,” she says. “They’re not necessarily the customers that advertisers care most about reaching.”

Latest iPhone buying trend.
For many Americans the iPhone 4S and 4 are better ones when comparing it the Apple’s latest version i5. So there is no surprise that iPhone 4S and 4 are still selling faster at low price than the latest model hand set. Another reason for their sales is that they are heavily discounted at US$ 100 - US$ 200 at stores. So it means people love iPhone5 but not at this price they want it to be more cheaper. on the other hand the American phone users are turning towards to Android platform Smartphone. And there is a big gap between the Android users and the iOS users as the Android seems to be the clear leader. Means the other Smartphone are out selling the iPhone in the American market.
So it is time for the iPhone makers to come out with a cheaper handset, and no wonder they may have to turn their operating system to be Android too. The popular social networking Facebook too has decided not to invest on the expensive platform to launch their new Facebook Home App, and they too went to their rival Google’s platform Android to introduce their new product recently.
