1billionApple have done it.

Over 1 billion apps downloaded in just under 9 months, just before 2 p.m. PDT (1:52 p.m.) 23rd April.

The most popular paid apps are Crash Bandicot Nitro Cart 3D, Koi Pond and Enigmo. Even if you are not an Apple fan you have to agree it is a significant milestone for iTunes and the iPhone/iPod touch. Congrats Apple.

I’m looking forward to seeing all the publicity they will push regarding the news, maybe a new ad? Not to mention that the copycats will use these figures for their strategies and sale estimates, but can Microsoft, Nokia, RIM and Google really reach these kind of milestones anytime soon? I doubt it myself but i don’t want to underestimate Google.

Apple Thanks a billion page
