App Store, Apple’s digital media application warehouse for its iPhone and iPod devices, continues to soar.
Apple is tooting its horn that downloads from its App Store now exceeds 2 billion.
The number of applications in the App Store has increased to 85,000.
App Store applications are in 20 categories including games, business, news, sports, health, reference and travel.
Here’s Apple CEO Steve Jobs blowing the trumpet:
The rate of App Store downloads continues to accelerate with users downloading a staggering two billion apps in just over a year, including more than half a billion apps this quarter alone. The App Store has reinvented what you can do with a mobile handheld device, and our users are clearly loving it.
